#28890 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Customizer - Widgets - Inactive 'Add a Widget' button can still get focus when using screen reader

Reported by: GrahamArmfield Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.0
Component: Customize Keywords:
Focuses: accessibility Cc:


Tested with NVDA on FF30 and JAWS on IE10, on Windows 7 64 bit.

To recreate:

  • Start your screen reader
  • Tab into Customize > Widgets
  • Tab to sidebar that has widgets within it and press Enter to open.
  • Tab to the Reorder button and press Enter.
  • Reverse tab once - focus is now on Add a Widget button and screen reader announces it. Visual indication implies that this button is inactive. Pressing enter key gives no result.

Suggest that when this button is inactive it is removed from tab order by removing the tabindex="0".
