Dear experts,

I have created a web page which contains a number of buttons, dynamically created by SQL queries in the database.

The web page will be used by elderly users, so I want the navigation within the page to be as simple as possible, mainly by means of the TAB button.

I want that when the last button of my web page is active and focused, then the next TAB stroke would make active and focused the first button of my web page. The default functionality so far is that any button present in the browser menu become activated and focused.

Is there any way I could skip these buttons from the TAB order and only my web page buttons be circulated ?

You can use the tabindex attribute to control the order within your page. You can't skip the browser buttons. The user could want to go to the browser and corrupting it would be unfriendly. There are only a couple browser tab links and then you are back to your order.
