Tabs on web Pages

Andy
 

I am noticing that more and more web pages are using tabs on the page to organize their content. For example, a restaurant menu web page may have tabs for breakfast, lunch items, etc.  When I hit ENTER or the spacebar to access a tab, I find that i can't read any of the items within the tab, or navigate within the tab.  What keystrokes do I need to use to work with these tabs?

Hi Andy,
 
When I press enter on a Tab I get the same sound as I get when I open an edit field, so I press the PC cursor key to close the so called edit field and
then I can arrow or tab through the options.  You can also try a left mouse click on the tabs.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

I haven't seen them as tabs as much as closed menus
If you press space bar, that opens that.
I wonder if that is the same thing you mentioned.
To me, tabs are like separate pages that you control + tab to.

I’ve seen “tabs” on wirecutter.com. It’s a New York times website that reviews tech-related stuff. For example, in Best Travel Gear, if you click on that, it opens into a web page with tabs: packing, just in case, etc. I’ve never figured out how to open those tabs.

I wrestled with those New York Times tabs yesterday when I couldn’t get the “All comments” tab to highlight. Finally, I switched from Chrome to IE11, where the tabs show up as links. As links, they work.

Put your hand on the top right of your numpad. 

 

the first button is the jaws cursor. 

 

The second button, one below that, is about twice as long.  That, is your PC key.

Many thanks for this. Another ask! I see the example of accessing tabs, but when else might one find the Jaws key useful?

Hi, Alison.

 

Terminology can be confusing. On this list, when people refer to the “JAWS key,” they’re typically using shorthand for the insert key on the desktop layout and the caps lock on the laptop layout. I think you’re asking here about the JAWS cursor key, the one above the PC cursor key that Justin explained.

 

The JAWS cursor sometimes enables you to read parts of the screen that you can’t access in the normal PC cursor mode. As listers have been saying more often lately, it doesn’t help as often as it used to, but sometimes it still can. If you find yourself wondering about a particular webpage or screen, press the JAWS cursor key, then press control-home to go to the top of the screen, then press “say all.” See if JAWS picks up any additional information. To bring back the PC cursor, just press that PC cursor key.

Hi,

Typically when I encounter tabs on a web page, I press enter to activate the tab then enter again to exit forms mode then I can tab into the open tab.

Thanks, Donald

Accessibility, like security, is better when built-in from the beginning rather than bolted on at the end.
