This technique relates to all technologies.
This technique relates to Success Criterion 2.2.1: Timing Adjustable (Sufficient).
The objective of this technique is to provide a mechanism for people who cannot complete tasks within a specified time limit to turn off the time limit.
It is essential that the mechanism for turning off the time limit can be completed without a time limit itself and before the time limit for the page expires. To do this - the mechanism should be available at or near the top of the page so that it can be found and activated quickly by people with a wide range of disabilities.
- A page has a listing of news headlines that automatically update every minute. At the top of the page is a link that turns off the updating.
- Check that there is a mechanism to turn off any time limits near the top of the page.
- Verify that the time limit for the page is long enough that a user can easily navigate to the mechanism even if they are 10 times slower than most users.
- Checks #1 and #2 are true.
