11.2.2.13: Resize text

Where ICT is non-web software that provides a user interface which is not able to access to enlargement features of platform or assistive technology, it shall meet requirement 5.1.4 (Functionality closed to text enlargement).

Notes

  1. Clause 11.2.1.13 requires information to be in a programmatically determinable form in order for reading sequence to be determined. Clause 5.1.4 addresses the same need for larger text.
  2. Because the text rendering support in a closed environment may be more limited than the support found in user agents for the Web, meeting 11.2.1.13 in a closed environment may place a much heavier burden on the content author.
