      Description

      Point 3.2.2 of the http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ web content accessibility guidelines indicates changing content upon leaving a field, apart from just moving to a next field, is not accessible.
      See: http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/Overview.html#consistent-behavior-unpredictable-change

      The network servlet changes context everywhere.

      Reading the description of the techniques, I think the easiest will be to add an extra comment line that indicates that pressing any button will cause the web content to be rebuilt.

      Note, that this message would also need to get translated.
