Web content does not restrict use of input modalities available on a platform except where the restriction is essential, required to ensure the security of the content, or required to respect user settings.

Testing & Remediation

How to test: Open your website or app and ensure that all input fields can be entered by multiple input methods. For example, connect a mouse & keyboard to your mobile phone and verify that your site recognizes the new input methods. How to remediate:
  • Only use high-level, input-agnostic event handlers (focus, blur, click) in JavaScript
  • Register event handlers for keyboard/keyboard-like and pointer inputs simultaneously in JavaScript
