Description

  • Try to enter a search term such as "coffee & tea"
Resulting error
  • & cannot be entered into global search box
  • entering Shift+7 (aka key combo to create & character on most en keyboard layouts) shifts focus to next UI element instead (similar to tab key)
Expected result
  • term is entered into global search box
  • Ampersand character does not cause UI to shift focus to next page element
Notes
  • the double ampersand - && - is reserved in ES, and can be used in a search query in place of a literal AND for boolean searching - as such, ampersand characters should work in the Global search box
  • We should double-check accessibility best practices to ensure that shift+7 is not a commonly known alternative to the tab key for UI keyboard navigation
