Adding a checkbox[Bearbeiten]

Adding a checkbox needs allmost the same checks as in Adding a button. So here are things specific to checkboxes:

  • Ensure that checking and unchecking the box can be done by spacebar and the mouse.
  • Make sure that the AT knows the right state of the box. this is especially important when using boxes with images or use more than two states. The new state must be immediately be visible for the AT.
  • Make sure that speech recognition can identify and check the box by a single speech command.
  • If a checkbox enables or disables part of the UI, make sure that the tabbing order is changed correctly. That means tab should bring the users to all elements of the UI he or she can work on.
