So small screen touch devices go into a mode that adds horizontal scrolling when enlarged.  So you are suggesting that it’s ok for users to have to initiate a pinch zoom, then scroll the screen and then tap the target in order to get a target that is large enough for them.  I don’t think this is very practical.

That is not what I am saying.    That is what THE SC is saying.

This SC says  ‘Make all the non-text targets big — but all the hypertext links on the page are exempt —  so the person will have to zoom it in order to use any hypertext link’.


What I am saying is that if Zoom is good enough for all the links on the page  — why are we requiring that the few non-text targets be large ?
