I am doing requirement gathering for a complex in house web application. My customer is adamant to have keyboard tab index interaction for the application along with regular mouse interaction. My research says, there is no user who is physically challenged, may require tab index interactions.

What is the value add if we incorporate tab index interaction across application? What are the pro and cons to have tab index in a complex web application?

Thanks-

    Can you clarify what you mean by "My research says, there is no user who is physically challenged, may require tab index interactions"? Also, by default, browsers allow the Tab key to cycle focus between interactive elements on the page. Does your application break this default behavior? Why do you need to override the default page flow with tabindex? – maxathousand Sep 9 at 14:14
  • "My research says, there is no user who is physically challenged ..." I am here talking about the user segments i have identified for this web application. – Souvik Das Sep 9 at 14:24
  • What is "tab index navigation"? When you are filing a form and to continue writing in the next field you press "Tab"? I just want to understand. – caravana_942 Sep 10 at 20:51
