  2. Success Criteria Level: A/AA/AAA
  3. Glossary: Suggested glossary definitions or changes.
  4. Associated Principle and Guideline or Proposal for New Guideline
  5. Success Criteria Intent: What users benefit from the content successfully addressing it.
  6. User benefits: Clear information about how the proposal will benefit users, along with justification and evidence of the benefits. Include links to research.
  7. Test Procedure: Description of how this SC can be tested.
  8. Technique Titles: Possible technique titles which could be used to satisfy the SC.



Mobile Success Criteria (14 New SCs and 14 weeks until deadline)

  1. New Guideline: Pointer Accessible: Make it easier for users to operate touch and pointer functionality.
    1. Pointer: All functionality can be operated with pointer input (Level A)
    2. Target Size: The size of the target in relation to the visible display at the default viewport size is at least: (Level AA)
    3. Pointer gestures (Level AA)
  2. New Guideline: Inputs with Assistive Technology
    1. Keyboard with AT (that remaps key input) (Level ?)
    2. Touch with Assistive Technology (Level ?)
    3. Input-agnostic (Level ?)
    4. No Focus Trap (Level ?)
    5. (No) accidental activation (Level ?)
    6. Speech Input: All functionality of the content (including touch and gesture) is operable through the keyboard, and does not obstruct a user's ability to access the keyboard commands through speech input. (Level A)
    7. Single key shortcut alternative: The user can adjust any single key shortcut to an alternative control of a string of symbols and letters.
  3. New Guideline: Advanced Input
    1. Pointer inputs with additional sensors
    2. Device sensors
  4. New Guideline: Make content usable in device orientations.
    1. Orientation: Orientation of the content is not locked to landscape or portrait, except where orientation is essential.
  5. Guideline 4.1 Compatible: Maximize compatibility with current and future user agents, including assistive technologies.
    1. Non-interference of AT: Content does not interfere with default functionality of platform level assistive technology (Level A)
