8. Do not allow sideways scroll bar when the window is maximized.

People who have upper limb disabilities or weak eyesight can have difficulty operating the scroll bar. Persons with weak eyesight sometimes magnify parts of the screen using the magnify tool. The magnify tool scroll and the browser scroll are doubled up, further complicating operation of the browser

Example and Implementation

  • Enable display without a sideways scroll when the width of the window is 800 pixels.

9. Make pages an appropriate length. If they are long, place suitable navigations, such as the 'Top of Page' link.

There are difficulties in grasping the content of pages which must have a diversity of up and down scrolling because they are lengthy. Persons who have upper limb disabilities or sight impairments can have difficulty with operating the scroll bar.

Example and Implementation

  • Make a single screen a page length of 450 pixels, or two to three screen lengths at the most.
  • When you cannot make the page this length, prepare internal page navigation. (Place navigation on the screen which returns the user to the top of the page, etc. If this is the case, use this navigation consistently throughout the site).
