Keyboard focus

What the issue is

Buttons that lack clear keyboard focus indicators make it difficult for users who rely on keyboard navigation to determine which element has focus. This issue typically arises in custom-styled web pages where the default focus styles provided by browsers have been overridden or removed. Without visible focus indicators, keyboard users may lose track of their current position on the page, leading to a frustrating and inefficient navigation experience.

What the issue is

Links that lack a visible focus indicator can significantly impede keyboard navigation, making it difficult for users who rely on a keyboard instead of a mouse to determine which link is currently selected. The absence of these indicators can lead to users losing track of their location on a web page, which not only hinders usability but also accessibility, particularly for those with visual impairments or motor disabilities that necessitate keyboard navigation.
