Success Criterion 1.3.2 - Level A
Ensure that the order which assistive technologies follow reflect the meaning of the content. Otherwise, users of assistive technology may misunderstand the content. Most content is presented from left to right, from top to bottom. The information should also be presented to users of assistive technologies in this way.
The content should be presented to assistive technologies in a meaningful way. This allows users of voice control, keyboard control, switch control and the screen reader to present the content a meaningful way.
