Comment LC-2779
Commenter: Makoto Ueki <makoto.ueki@gmail.com> on behalf of WAIC(Web Accessibility Infrastructure Committee in Japan)

Summary of Issue: Search button followed by search options
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
We'd like to make sure if the reading order of the following example "affects its meaning" and the focus order "preserves meaning and operability.".

ex2. Search Options
<input type="text" title="keyword">
<input type="submit" value="Search">
<input type="radio" name="optionsRadios" id="optionsRadios1"
value="option1" checked>
<label for="optionsRadios1">Search example.com</label>
<input type="radio" name="optionsRadios" id="optionsRadios2" value="option2">
<label for="optionsRadios2">Search the web</label>

There is a text field for search which is followed by radio buttons providing search options. Screen reader users might not be able to perceive that there are the radio buttons before pressing the search button.
Does this text field meet SC 1.3.2 and/or SC 2.4.3?

Proposed Change:
WAIC would like to have the answer from WCAG working group to confirm the intent of both SC in order to harmonize JIS(Japanese Industrial Standards) with WCAG.
