All,

 

My suggestion is to update the Description for the Mobile Update to the G4
Technique to stress the requirement for keyboard interface (2.1.1) support.

 

G4: Original Description: 

Description

The objective of this technique is to provide a way to pause movement or
scrolling of content. If the user needs to pause the movement, to reduce
distraction or to have time to read it, they can do so, and then restart it
as needed. This mechanism can be provided either through interactive
controls that conform to WCAG or through keyboard shortcuts. If keyboard
shortcuts are used, they are documented.

 

G4 New for Mobile: Suggested changes..........

Description

The objective of this technique is to provide a way to pause movement or
scrolling of content. If the user needs to pause the movement, to reduce
distraction or to have time to read it, they can do so, and then restart it
as needed. This mechanism can be provided either through interactive
controls that conform to WCAG or through keyboard shortcuts. Standard
keyboard interface accessibility is always required (under 2.1.1), and if
non-standard keyboard shortcuts are used, they are documented.
