What Principle and Guideline the SC falls within.

Principle 1, Guideline 1.4


Simply Put: If the page uses capital letters in a way that makes it hard for you to read, then you can change it to something you can read.


Text in all capital letters is more difficult to read for most people, with and without disabilities.

User Need: Users can change the capitalization (all capital letters, small capital letters, sentence style) of blocks of text.

Source: Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision, Section 3.3.4


  1. find text with all caps
  2. use a user style sheet to turn off ALL caps
  3. if the text doesn't change it fails.
