tab order get's messed up


Hi I need a proper tab order (Creating accessible reports in Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft Learn) for accessibility reasons. I defined it as shown in the documentation, but everytime I publish the dashboard the order is still messed up and not in order as displayed here:


Is there anything I can do to fix this issue?

HI @v-yalanwu-msft ,


thanks for the answer. So the screenshot above is my desired tab order which I configured manually as described in the link you sent (Tab Order Enhances Power BI Report Accessibility – Data Savvy).


Although, when I publish the report the actual tab order is like this:

actual tab orderconfigured tab order
1. Appbar1. Appbar
2.  PrimaryButton2. SecondaryButton
3. TertiaryButton3. TextBox
4. SecondaryButton4. PrimarySlicer

5. DataView

5. HelpBox

Hi, @askBI ;

Can you share a screenshot about the sequential screenshot of the dashboard after publishing it for comparison. Depending on the pictures you provide, the order is normal.

Wondering if you ever sorted this problem, I am in the same situation of trying to create an accessible report and tab order changes when I publish

 @Power_burgo, no unfortunately not. The only workaround I used, is to group the elements properly, so even if the order get's messed up it's only within the respective hierarchy and therefore in smaller areas of the UI.
