Proposed Revision for Interruptions (Minimum) (Level AA)

A mechanism is available to postpone and suppress unnecessary interruptions and changes in content, unless they are initiated by the user or involve an emergency.

Definition: Unnecessary interruptions: Secondary information, pop-ups, or actions that are not part of the workflow sequence or the key purpose of the application. Note: Error, success, and warning messages; timeout notifications, live updates when the purpose of the application is monitoring are not unnecessary interruptions.
