Technically, the purpose of the link can be determined based on what WCAG refers to as its "programmatically determined" context (i.e. its position in a hierarchical list). That said, the second example in the question (with the manufacturer repeated before the type) is undoubtedly easier for more people to understand. A screen reader or braille display ...

The benefit of keeping the default outline focus indicator is that it's well understood and does not rely purely on colour, which makes it accessible to users with difficulty recognising changes in colour. That said, it is acceptable to remove the outline and replace it with a different visual clue. The relevant WCAG guideline is SC 2.4.7 (AA) which also ...

The approach would be to put it in a hidden div with text which can be read by screen readers only but wont be visible to people without Visual impairments. To quote this webaim article Positioning content off-screen The following are the recommended styles for visually hiding content that will be read by a screen reader. .hidden ...

First, you can add a message that is invisible to all but screen readers. But I believe that you should really mark the container with aria-live.

I guess @Mervin Johnsingh has already answered it with the facts and figures. I just wanted to highlight my experience and my thoughts automatic doors(Sliding). If there is a automatic sliding door, one expects it to open at a safe distance without decreasing the speed of walking(with doubts in mind if its going to open or not) Similarly, when one enters ...

As per the ADA guidelines,the recommendations for doors are Doors that snap closed quickly make it difficult for users, particularly those with disabilities, to get through safely. Doors with closers should take at least 5 seconds to move from the open position at 90 degrees to 12 degrees from the latch. Doors with spring hinges should take at ...

Perhaps an audio feedback like 'The list has been reordered' would be suitable? Audio information is a perfectly acceptable form of feedback for visual impaired users and they generally are used to it and value it. On a separate note, if the users are blind or visually impaired your UI is problematic by the looks of things. I can identify that bin and the ...

The fair share of users use assistiveTouch to not have to go to a hardware key for home and have shortcuts at hand. This is persistent in Android too. The soft touch action on a screen vs the hard press of a hardware key offers completely different feel. Hence many users, me included choose to avoid the hardware key altogether. I have shortcuts to power off ...

None. Assistive Touch is built so users can drag it to wherever they like on the screen to not interfere with any app. Even if you chose to make your app "support" it, that change would also cause anyone else using the app without assistive touch to suffer. It's not a function that Apple allows you to scan whether it's active or not. Just don't do it.

I happen to disagree with the other suggested answers, so let me try to explain why. Appropriateness Is the use of your app in dark environments a core feature of the application? For example this is the case for an e-reader application or navigation application, but is not the case for a messaging application. If it is a core feature then I agree that ...

A good example to consider would be the ibooks app in iOS which allows users to enable the dark theme automatically depending on the light sensor detection. However as PS86 rightly pointed out, dont build this automatically into the system but enable the user to set as a desired parameter. To quote this article, the ibook app enables this by an option ...

Yes, it's a good idea to dynamically change the theming of the application based on lighting. Also remember to add: the ability for the user to turn off dynamically changing the theme based on lighting The ability to change theme regardless of the current lighting ambience Sometimes users prefer having dark theme during the day and vice versa

As a person with low vision affected by glare, I find high contrast white on black so much easier on the eyes! The only time I switch back is to use apps that do not conform and end up hiding text with black on black.

The information you're providing isn't very descriptive of the complete scenario, but based on it, it sounds like you're describing a situation where you have users and a superuser or admin. If this is the case, it's quite common to display only the available options for their level of access. This being said, you have two choices here: if you don't care ...

Are you asking for a technical or UX solution here? UPDATE: Very curious why someone has voted this question down. The question appears to be one a UX-sided one, however, it is really not clear. Esp. because a technical solution would be very simple.

Accessibility is more than accommodating people that can't use a mouse. It's also about people that prefer not to use a mouse. To give you a quick idea of these types of people: anyone with fine motor control restrictions. Parkinsons, severe arthritis, etc. Those with disabled hands/arms (war vets, accidents, etc.) anyone with large motor control issues ...
