Pretty sure you're not supposed to prevent highlighting as thats there for people with disabilities.

Can also be used to prevent selection of images by accident.

When I had to use this it was to prevent the highlighting when you clicked multiple times on a carousel arrow really fast. I wouldn’t apply it to text or anything like that - I would have no reason to.

I can’t find much info on this specific property and accessibility issues, where did you find that information?

I am wrong. I was thinking of this: a11yproject.com/posts/never-remove.... As long as it still has an outline when it's focused you're safe.

It was worth checking again, considering how screenreaders work! Thanks for sharing the issue with removing the outline on focus 🙂
