JAWSChromeyes
  • Result: (pass)
    • Test Case: Use Space (Activate Form Control) on the target of `#target-4`
      1. Launch JAWS and Chrome.
      2. Navigate to the test page.
      3. Identify all elements that match this selector:#target-4
        • If multiple elements match the target, repeat this test for all instances. However, choose a single instance to report against. If you feel that the selector should be more specific, please open a GitHub Issue.
      4. Position and configure the screen reader so that the following conditions are met
        • Virtual focus is: target
        • Keyboard focus is: target
        • Mode is: auto (do not explicitly change the mode)
      5. Issue the command: Space (Activate Form Control)
        • After issuing the command, virtual focus should be: target
      6. Record results for the relevant expectations
    • Output: "space, toggle button, [partially checked | pressed | not pressed], action"
