Interactive pages can be a major barrier for users, especially those on a screen reader. Issues for navigating forms and interactive pages include:
- Users on a screen reader need to know what information to put into a particular field.
- Form controls and icons may not be fully identified on a screen reader.
- Forms or interactive controls should work on a keyboard as well as a mouse. Blind viewers and users with certain mobility impairments to their hands may not be able to control a mouse.
- If a user does not enter information correctly into a form, the error report form should clearly identify the location and type of error.
No matter what platform a form is created in, these guidelines should be implemented.
