Do not rely on touch gestures

For: Development

Pointer Gestures (2.5.1 level A)

  • Do not rely on touch (for example. pinching, swiping, dragging), even for interfaces designed for touch screens. You can use touch gestures, but you need a standard fall back.
  • For example, if you swipe between images, you also need a button that does the same thing for people using switch access or screen readers.
