Review changes made to Rule Categories


Nick: Rule Categories - Structure was changed to Structure/Content

Nick: Navigation is separate category for page & site

Nick: Added Keyboard Support

Nick: Layout/Order is now Styles/Readability

Nick: added "Possible reordering" to list from simple to complex

Ann: maybe "Discoverability" for "Findability"?

Ann: Does WCAG use either term?


Ann: maybe "predictability" per 3.2.3?

Ann: maybe use "consistency"?

Nick" "Possible reordering" for how a class may be taught (education).

Ann : possible issue = Keyboard Support & Navigation at very end of list but considered highly important.

Ann: Suggest "Data tables" be changed to "Tables" so all rules for any type of table appear in same category.

Jon: probably need to review rules for tables




Ann: Widget navigation: tab into widget, arrow keys navigate within widget with next tab keypress exiting widget to next focusable control on page.
