    Yes please, tab navigation is so important. I’m able to use a mouse or touchscreen to navigate web pages, but it’s great to have other options when I would rather use my keyboard.

    In the last few months, I relied on tab navigation and focus indicators in an online Spanish course created by a textbook company. The website accomodates mouse users and tab users alike, making for a good experience without using the mouse. It was so good that I tried tab navigation on other parts of the web, but it’s either too difficult or impossible due to the issues explained in the article.

    Designers: Please make sure there are ways to use your website beyond using a mouse.
