3 Things - Tuesday, October 17

Three techniques to help you meet three of the WCAG 2.2 Success Criteria.
  1. Technique G219: Ensuring that an alternative is available for dragging movements that operate on content
    This Technique aims to ensure that people with motor impairments who cannot carry out dragging movements are presented with an alternative single-pointer interaction that does not involve dragging. Relates to SC 2.5.7: Dragging Movements (Level AA)

  2. Technique C42: Using min-height and min-width to ensure sufficient target spacing
    This technique aims to ensure that links in navigation or pagination menus will be spaced to fall within an area that measures at least 44 x 44 CSS pixels if the target area itself is smaller than that. The aim is to provide an adequate target clearance so the offset to adjacent targets is sufficient to prevent accidental pointer activation of adjacent targets. Relates to 
    SC 2.5.8: Target Size (Minimum) (Level AA)

  3. Technique G220: Provide a contact-us link in a consistent location
    This technique aims to provide a mechanism for finding contact details consistently across pages to make it easier for users to find them. The interactive item on the webpage is a link to the contact details page. The programmatic and visual location is consistent on each page in the set of web pages when viewed within the same size viewport. Relates to SC 3.2.6: Consistent Help (Level A)
