188.8.131.52: Modifications of states and properties
When permitted by security requirements, software that provides a user interface shall, by using the services as described in clause 184.108.40.206, allow assistive technologies to programmatically modify states and properties of user interface elements, where the user can modify these items.
- In some cases the security requirements imposed on a software product may forbid external software from interfering with the ICT product and so this requirement would not apply. Examples of systems under strict security requirements are systems dealing with intelligence activities, cryptologic activities related to national security, command and control of military forces.
- Assistive technologies may be required to maintain the same level of security as the standard input mechanisms supported by the platform.
