WCAG 2.2 simplified | Mike Gower

A useful overview of the new success criteria coming in WCAG 2.2 (though the author is quick to note that changes are still at least a little likely).

[I wouldn't normally copy such a large block of text, but as this is a Medium article I don't trust it to stay online.]

What to do: Ensure the item receiving keyboard focus is at least partially visible in the viewport

Focus Not Obscured (Enhanced)

Focus Appearance
