Description James Nurthen 2015-11-23 19:13:52 UTC
Remove: Keyboard navigation within a modal dialog includes these aspects:

Editorial and order changes needed to the 4 keyboard section

Remove notes:
Even if the user clicks outside of the dialog on the application which invoked the dialog, focus remains in the dialog.
Because the dialog is modal and the user can not interact with the invoking application while the dialog is displayed, there is no requirement to make the dialog moveable via the mouse although this behavior is recommended.
Comment 1 James Nurthen 2015-11-23 19:20:56 UTC
remove last bullet from notes:
Authors should take care when using Enter to trigger default actions since Enter might be connected to and trigger some other user interface element, or it might trigger the focused element. Authors should ensure that Enter activates only the widget they intend. 

Edit 4th bullet to remove discussion of what to do if no focusable item (as this should never happen)

Remove "If it is a simple dialog with a message that alerts, warns, or requests confirmation (e.g., "Are you sure you want quit?"), then authors are advised to use the alertdialog role. See the "Alert Dialog" design pattern for more information." from roles/states and properties

Add discussion of aria-describedby
