Accessibility Checkpoint select change event blocks keyboard navigation


select lists cannot be operated from the keyboard if they have an onchange handler that performs navigation, because the handler fires as the user moves the selection up and down using the keyboard.


Moving through list items using the arrow keys will jump to another page unexpectedly.

Applicable standards
