Subject: handling focus
To: public-canvas-api@w3.org

Hi all,
at TPAC the provision of a method to draw focus rectangles on a canvas
was discussed, and it appeared that this was considered necessary,
how does this fit in with the use of active-descendent to track focus
in a shadow DOM?

The user scenarios that need to be addressed are:
keyboard only users.
screen magnifier users who use focus highlighting features.
screen magnifier users who rely upon the characteristics of focusable
elements to move focused content into their viewport.

>From the discussions so far in regards to the shadow DOM, it does not
sound as if their will be a relationship between focus on the canvas
and elements in the shadow DOM.
If this is the case then not only will a shadow dom with focus managed
via active descendent have to be created to represent content to the
subset of AT users who do not require the content to be visually
rendered , but also focus management for areas drawn visibly on the
canvas, this seems like an unnecessary duplication?

with regards
