I have a form with a grid area with 3 columns. When I tab, all text fields are in the correct order: down column one, then down column two, then down column three. However, I have one field that is a radio that is skipped by keyboard navigation. I also have a checkboxes field which is also totally skipped by keyboard.
This presents a problem not just in efficiency but also with WCAG accessibility.
I checked all field settings and do not see where I could change anything regarding tab order. Is this a bug? Help?!

Can anyone else verify that keyboard navigation with radio and checkbox elements does not work?

Yes I can confirm this too. Not sure why it's happening, will have to wait for Max to see it

Can we get a response from someone at Chrono? Five days of silence. Can we confirm that this is an issue?

Was this fixed in the latest update (6.1.4)? We seem to still be having issues with tabbing on radio buttons.

This is one form we're having an issue with: https://watertownldc.com/rent-assistance/apply
Try tabbing between the radio options for the business plan and the lease agreement. I can select one option, but not the other, and then there is no way to change the selection.
There is also very little focus indicator due to the styling nature of the actual input element being hidden, but that not as severe of an issue.

I guess because of the same field name, its a one selection field, you need to change fields with the up/down, checkboxes work differently because they do not have a single selection.
