WAS Notes: WCAG 3.2 Predictable

I'm studying for the WAS certification. These are some of the notes I've taken recently.

Published:

3.2.1 On Focus - Level A

When user interface components receive focus, they do not initiate a change of context.

How to Succeed

Use activation, such as clicks, instead of focus to trigger changes in context.

How to Fail

Remove focus when focus is received.

3.2.2 On Input - Level A

Changing the setting of a user interface component does not automatically change the context unless the user has been made aware of the behavior in advance.

How to Fail

3.2.3 Consistent Navigation - Level AA

Navigation that repeats on multiple pages occurs in the same order when they are repeated unless changed by the user.

How to Succeed

Present components in the same relative order each time they appear.

How to Fail

Present navigation links in a different relative order on different pages.

3.2.4 Consistent Identification - Level AA

Components that have the same functionality are identified consistently.

How to Succeed

Use labels, names, and text alternatives consistently for content with the same functionality.

How to Fail

Use two different labels for things that do the same thing, either within the page or within a set of pages.

3.2.5 Change on Request - Level AAA

Only change the context when the user requests it, or provide a mechanism to turn off such changes.
