Hi everyone,

I thought I’d follow up the meeting [1] with specific emails on SCs, as there are important next-steps for each. (For the whole group, not just the original author!)

This was the first review for dragging [2], and from the comments [3] and discussion there seems to be general support for the concept, if it is shown to be feasible.

The main thing that is needed is to add examples, hopefully finding at least 1 successful implementation.

So, if you know of any good keyboard-accessible drag ‘n drop or sortable type components, please do reply to this email.

(I know this SC is about pointers, but all the examples I’ve found aren’t even keyboard accessible, let-alone single-tap accessible. I suspect examples that fulfil this SC will be a sub-set of keyboard accessible ones.)

Kind regards,
