10.2.29: On focus

Where ICT is a non-web document, it shall satisfy the success criterion in Table 10.29.

Table 10.29: Document success criterion: On focus

When any component receives focus, it does not initiate a change of context.

NOTE 1: Some compound documents and their user agents are designed to provide significantly different viewing and editing functionality depending upon what portion of the compound document is being interacted with (e.g. a presentation that contains an embedded spreadsheet, where the menus and toolbars of the user agent change depending upon whether the user is interacting with the presentation content, or the embedded spreadsheet content). If the user uses a mechanism other than putting focus on that portion of the compound document with which they mean to interact (e.g. by a menu choice or special keyboard gesture), any resulting change of context would not be subject to this success criterion because it was not caused by a change of focus.

NOTE 2: This success criterion is identical to the WCAG 2.0 Success Criterion 3.2.1 On Focus with the addition of note 1.
