Ian,

If a user is mobility impaired and needs their preferred voice-only UI wallet/agent/system (that uses this HTTP API) to complete a payment using our architecture, they can.

If a user is blind and uses a screen reader, and they need to use a specific UI wallet/agent/system (that uses this HTTP API) that they have chosen because it works best with their screen reader, to complete a payment using our architecture, they can.

If a user has cognitive limitations and need a simplified UI wallet/agent/system (that uses this HTTP API) that they have chosen because it works best for them, to complete a payment using our architecture, they can.

Does that help?

Intergrrating the HTTP API into the Web Payments architecture is one of the most important immediate ways that Accessibility can be incorporated into payments by allowing users with disabilities to utilize their own preferred UI/device (that may or may not use assistive technologies), that uses this HTTP API. Meaning they can use the interaction model (auditory, simplified UI, text only, etc.) that they need to complete the payment.

Hi Katie,

Can you say more about the accessibility perspective? Thanks!

Ian
