Tabbing Behavior for the Mouse Pointer : New Accessibility for the Keyboard, Improved Usability for the Mouse
Both the mouse and keyboard have different advantages and disadvantages. The mouse allows users to quickly target the portion of the screen with which they want to interact, potentially skipping over large chuncks of the page. There are also events that are triggered only by the mouse, such as rollovers, mouse events, etc. However, the mouse is unnatural to use in combination with the keyboard. And there are virtually no applications where a keyboard is not necessary due to the requirement of user input.
If an application is designed with keyboard accessibility, it should still be possible for a user to target all the sections of the page that can be targeted with a mouse. However, mouse events cannot be triggered with the keyboard today,. This means that users that either prefer to use only the keyboard (to avoid the added movement of switching between use of the two devices) or who are at a kiosk station, may miss out on events an application will only trigger as a result of a mouse movement.
