Success Criterion 3.2.3 - Level AA

Consistent Navigation

Ensure navigation is in the same place on every screen. For example, place the back button in the top left corner on every screen. Always place the share button in the same place in the navigation bar, for example on the far right. The same navigation is especially useful for users of assistive technologies.


Anyone can use an app more easily when repeating content is structured in the same way. Especially people with cognitive, intellectual or visual impairments benefit from this.


Is the way of navigation the same on each screen?

This can be tested without assistive technologies.

Note: this success criterion is exempt for apps in EN 301 549 and Section 508.


Use consistent positioning

On Android, you should place your Toolbar and BottomNavigationView on the same position of each screen.
