Who might be affected

When interactable elements are overlapping, users might not be able to interact with them. Also, some assistive technologies might not be able to clearly represent the actionable objects to users.

Quick Fixes

Ensure that the boundaries of adjacent interactable elements do not overlap each other so that the user interaction is not blocked.

Also, make sure that the spacing is sufficient between interactable elements. For more information see the tappable-area entry.
