Bryan,

Ok.  Thanks for the feedback.
So in general "onclick" events are "required" for supporting default actions for widgets?
Jon

I'm using JAWS in IE11.

I see what the problem is I think, the button needs a redundant click handler that performs the same action as Enter and the Downarrow. Otherwise when you arrow to the button in the Virtual Buffer and press Enter, nothing happens because the screen reader is simulating a mouse click and not a keypress.

Bryan,

It does move focus to first menu item without any assistive technology, what is happening in your experience?
Which assistive technologies are you using?

Jon

I'd recommend setting focus to the first role=menuitem element after the menu button is activated. Otherwise it sounds like nothing has occurred to a non-sighted screen reader user.

Also this comes into play for touch device users, where if focus is automatically set, it is possible to then swipe Left/Right on iOS for example to navigate between the menu items, but if focus is left on the button, you have to manually hunt for where the menu is located on the screen.

I'd also recommend adding a submenu example.

All the best,
Bryan

This example uses a button element as the menu button and demonstrates a menu of ³actions²:
