How to Fix the Problem

You should navigate with keyboard and check that the navigation does not get stuck inside this object. If the navigation actually gets stuck, an alternative content should be provided for keyboard users, so that they will not get trapped inside the object.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

Elements of type <object>, <applet>, <bgsound>, <embed> are automatically suspect to have a potential keyboard trap.

Why Is it Important?
