Description Yousuf Philips (jay) 2016-09-10 14:03:27 UTC
When the spelling dialog is opened and when a new mispelt word is highlighted, the cursor should return to the 'not in dictionary' text area so that a user can easily modify the word and a screen reader can read the mispelt word, as presently a a11y users cant know which of the text area words are mispelt.

Dear all,

I agree with Yousuf but it's more logical to read the word in most language from left to right so I prefer to have the cursor at the beginningo

...beginning of the misspell word.

Best regards.

Having the cursor at the end makes it easier for users to modify it and more people make errors at the end of a word than at the beginning. This is also the same behaviour available in MSO.
