Designing for Mobility Impaired

Mobility-Impaired Users

  • May use only the keyboard for navigation
  • May tire quickly
  • May not have fine motor control

Accessible Design Techniques

  • Ensure that the page is keyboard accessible
  • Don't require fine motor control for moving or small links
  • Provide a way to skip over long lists of links (visible 'skip navigation' link)
  • Lengthy Web pages may cause fatigue. Be sure to use 'Back to Top' or 'Skip to Content' link functionality as a way to navigate through lengthily pages. Learn How to create Skip links.
