If your computer mouse suddenly stopped functioning, would you be able to continue working? What if you had a deadline and couldn’t wait for a replacement? For some, using a mouse is not an option. This may drastically limit their ability to use a website, web application, or even navigate operating systems.
Have you ever counted the number of times you “click” your mouse button in a minute?
You’ve probably been stuck on a site or app that wouldn’t accept your commands. This frustration is often a daily experience for keyboard-only users. Perhaps a popup window won’t close without a mouse click. Or a form field is skipped by the tab sequence. These situations are tough to navigate without a mouse, which can jeopardize the ability to perform tasks effectively.
