Related resources would be useful for ATAG2 SC A.3.6.3 Apply Platform Settings:

The following is a non-exhaustive list of accessibility-related platform display and control settings (for additional information related to keyboard shortcuts, see Success Criterion A.3.1.3):

BlackBerry: BlackBerry Accessibility
- http://us.blackberry.com/support/devices/blackberry_accessibility/#tab_tab_overview

Gnome: GNOME Accessibility Developers Guide
- User features: http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/stable/

KDE: Developer's Information
 - http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/kdebase-workspace/kcontrol/kcmaccess/index.html

Mac OS: Accessibility Overview

Microsoft Windows: Accessibility Overview
- http://www.microsoft.com/enable/products/chartwindows.aspx

iPhone OS: Accessibility Programming Guide for iPhone OS
- http://www.apple.com/accessibility/iphone/vision.html


BUT: In some case though supporting these platform level settings would fall under " A.1.2.1 Accessibility Guidelines: Non-web-based authoring tool user interfaces follow user interface accessibility guidelines for the platform. (Level A) Note: If a conformance claim is made, then the claim must cite the accessibility guidelines followed."

Thoughts?

Cheers,
Jan
