    We are using RAD Grid.(2011.1.519.35)

    For ADA compliance , we need to be able to browse through all the cells in the grid so that screen reader can read the data in each cell.

    We are using bound fields and template fields

    Issue is that the tab does not work for bound fields, it works only for the link button fields.

    How can the tabbing be enabled for bound field as the same is required for ADA compliance.

    Thanks,

    Hello Guru,

    RadGrid provides built-in keyboard navigation and in combination with Batch editing, you can tab through the cells:

    I hope this will prove helpful.

    Hi Eyup, I just created a web page and added telerik rad grid and bound a data source collection.

    The grid has all bound columns with no editable control.

    Can the user use tab order to move the focus across different cells by hitting the tab button?

    Below is the screenshot of the grid.

    Let me know if you need further details

    Hello Guruprasad,

    Will the cells be editable? In this case you can check Batch editing:

    Hi Guruprasad,

    Generally, the grid provides built-in keyboard navigation for its items: 
    https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/accessibility-and-internationalization/keyboard-support/defaultcs.aspx

    Traversing group cells will require custom implementation having in mind that not elements are able to get focus:
    https://www.w3.org/TR/html5/editing.html#focus

    I suggest that you open a formal support thread and send us a very basic runnable isolated version of your project. Thus, we will be able to replicate the described scenario locally and provide more accurate and precise suggestions.
