  • Includes content that can be presented in different ways without losing information, context, or structure.
  • Is easy to see and hear.
  • Permits all functionality from a keyboard if needed (as opposed to a cursor)

  • Is not designed in a way that is known to cause seizures.
  • Includes ways to help users navigate, find content, and determine where they are.
  • Operates and appears in predictable ways.
