How to Improve Keyboard Navigation


Keyboard accessibility is an important design aspect of web accessibility, but web designers often forget about users who rely on a keyboard for navigation. Most of us use a mouse and trackpad to navigate web sites. However, someone who has carpal tunnel syndrome or had an injury in an accident prefer using a keyboard.

In this video, I want to remind all designers, including myself of how to improve keyboard navigation of your website. I am showing a few web sites and walking you through what is out there. If you find any accessible websites or tips, please leave your comments below!
