Keyboard focus does not move to intended target

The reading and navigation order MUST be logical and intuitive.


When programmatic or keyboard focus does not follow visual focus - such as when an in-page link is coded to only shift the viewport - users of assistive technology do not get the same benefit as sighted mouse users. Programmatic and keyboard focus order must follow visual focus. A logical focus order makes interaction with content predictable for people who rely on a keyboard or screen reader to interact with a web content.

How to Fix

Fix the issue by moving both visual and screen reader focus to the intended element. For instance, when a "return to top" link is activated, both visual and programmatic focus is moved to the top of the page.
