strange radial box


Don H
 

Getting a survey from my power company that has some strange radial boxes. I have found that the only way to check the box is by hitting the escape key when the radial box has focus. Is this a common practice?


 

What is a radial box?  I have no idea.

As a blind person who has used several screen readers in the past I
assumed he meant radio buttons.

As a sighted person who has done the same, I didn't.   There are check boxes and there are radio buttons but nothing close to "radial box," hence the request for clarification.

I know what both of the above are, and if we're talking about radio buttons it would be helpful to have a URL for a page where the "odd behavior" is occurring.

I think you are talking about radio not radial, and buttons not boxes. That assumed:
Are you saying that tab doesn't work for you? With many radio buttons, I often can hit either escape or tab to get out of them, once the option I prefer is selected.
If that is what you are experiencing, it is common.

Until or unless the original poster makes a statement, no one knows for sure what he's talking about, nor the exact behavior he's referring to.  Pretending otherwise can be your thing, but it's not mine.

Issues like this require clarity, as well as example pages where said behavior occurs so that others can test out what happens for them.  So far, we've got neither.
