Oh sorry. I thought you were referring to navigation. The tabindex is only for tabbing via keyboard. It won't affect users clicking or tapping the element itself. Only way I know of making an image to be not read out is to make it a background image.

If you find a solution, please do share.

Thanks,
Oscar

Thank you guys.

I have tried to set tabindex to -1 and 0, but the VoiceOver in IPad (mini) keep reading the node when I touch, it can be an issue of VoiceOver with Safari to IPad. I will try to test in other kinds of devices.

Thanks
Rodrigo

Sometimes we need to ignore element used just to style the page, so I need something similar tabindex=“0” but for touch events.
