    Hi,

    Testing accessibility I get the following.

    “Some elements have a [tabindex] value greater than 0”

    I need to remove the tabindex to the make our pages accessible, can you let me know how?

    Hi,

    The only way to remove the tab indexes is by editing the core plugin files. Please note, by removing those tab indexes the magnifier icon will not be selectable – those explicit tab indexes were used to make it more accessible.

    The file you need to edit is wp-content/plugins/ajax-search-pro/includes/views/asp.shortcode.probox.php lines 38 and 79. If you simply remove those attributes, it will resolve the issue.

    Best,

    Thanks, I’ve done that. Is there a way to override it?

    I’m afraid no override is possible for this file. You could use a custom script to remove all tabindexes though – although I am not exactly sure if that resolves it:

    add_action('wp_footer', 'wp_footer_asp_custom_remove_tabindex', 9999);
    function wp_footer_asp_custom_remove_tabindex() {
    	?>
    	<script>
    	(function($){
    		$('*[tabindex]').removeAttr('tabindex');
    		setTimeout(function(){
    			$('*[tabindex]').removeAttr('tabindex');
    		}, 1000);
    	})(jQuery);
    	</script>
    	<?php
    }

    This would save me time on future updates, but your right, I’m not sure I trust removing tabindex in the first place.
