Horizontal scroll

For: Designer, Developer

Reflow (1.4.10 level AA)


Test on a mobile device and test by zooming into 400% on the browser.

  • Content viewed on mobile devices (i.e. displayed at 320px wide) should not have horizontal scrolling.
  • Content zoomed into 400% should still allow content to reflow without horizontal scroll or overlapping.
  • Content which must be displayed in two dimensions, such as maps and data tables, may have horizontal scrolling only on that element.
