Reflow... Did You Mean Mobile?

Date & Time
Tuesday, March 14, 2023 - 3:20 PM PST  
Platinum 5 (VISPERO)  
How did an accessibility guideline designed for people who have low vision get mixed up with needing to support mobile? Reflow is meant to help people easily perceive information when they zoom their screen. But modern browsers tend to treat zoom the same way they treat mobile breakpoints. This session will cover what types of issues constitute a Reflow failure according to WCAG, and where this success criterion overlaps with responsive web design.
