Scrollable element not keyboard accessible Accessibility Checkpoint


Hidden scrollable content cannot be scrolled using the keyboard.


Hidden scrollable content must either contain a focusable element like a link or have tabindex=0 set. This allows keyboard users to tab to the hidden content and scroll using the arrow keys.

Applicable standards

Note: Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level A and level AA checkpoints.
