Principle 2

Operable

An app must be able to be operated in a way desired by the users. Make sure that functionality cannot only be used via touch. People using a screen reader, voice control, keyboard access, switch control, or other assistive technologies should also be able to fully operate the app.

Examples

  • An app should be operable in multiples ways, including with a screen reader, voice control, keyboard access and switch control.

  • People with disabilities sometimes need more time to navigate through a screen. It is important that the time limits can be extended.

  • Some users have mobility impairments, preventing them being able to shake their phone. Make sure that this kind of functionality can also be activated in other ways.
