2.2 Principle 2 - Operable

Under the principle of operable [ http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-WCAG20-20081211/#operable ], the guideline states that the user interface components and navigation must be operable.

The W3C says:

  • Make all functionality available from a keyboard.
  • Give users enough time to read and use content.
  • Do not use content that causes seizures.
  • Help users navigate and find content.

"For me, when coding I think fast and I type just as fast, and every time I have to touch that stupid mouse I curse the idiot who failed to add or, worse, removed (which seems to happen as software 'evolves') the menus/shortcuts/ tabbing-logic that would allow me never to lose my thread, or efficiency."
