From HTML accessibility task force Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of areas and issues that the Task Force may consider taking up in HTML5.1. Each links to a dedicated wikipage where individuals and/or groups are encouraged to research and possibly demonstrate a need to formally address any of the individual issues.

Keyboard Interaction

Ensure interactions, such as focus navigation (e.g. fixing tabindex, accesskeys, etc) and activating elements can be done with keyboards, while working for Touch, Voice etc. (This is a large set of problems, and we deal with it in chunks). Includes keyboard text input issues
