Accessibility Checkpoint Mouse event handler without keyboard equivalent


For script and applet elements, ensure that event handlers are input device-independent. Do not write event handlers that rely on mouse coordinates since this prevents device-independent input.


Add an equivalent event handler that accepts keyboard input via event.keyCode.

Applicable standards

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