Ø  +1 to David. The text constraints thingy……

I agree and I’ve documented this.  There are actually additional ways using fixed positioned content that developers can prevent access to page content when pinch zoom is used.  Thus, it makes sense to have a specific failure for viewport scale restriction but also an additional failure for other techniques that prevent text resize.

We may have this but I want to þe sure we have a failure if the application overrides the pinch zoom or other native zooming capacity..

3.1 Keyboard Control for Touchscreen Devices

  *   Ensuring keyboard control for all functionality
  *   Ensuring touch access control for all functionality
  *   Ensuring that users are not trapped in content (using touch and keyboard)

     *   Use focus, hover and select states consistently and in a way that follows the respective platform conventions

1)      Does each technique make sense to you?  (for now these are just titles, so it can be a challenge to be certain)

2)      Do you agree that the referenced success criteria is applicable to each suggested technique, or that the technique is applicable to the SC)?

3)      Do you think that there is another technique that this might better be an example for instead of a technique on its own?

4)      Do you think that each is likely to be sufficient or advisory?

5)      Are there other techniques that you can think of that address the SC in the mobile space?
