ADA Accessibility Request: Minimize screen flashing in PTC products

I received an ADA accessibility request to minimize blinking, flashing, or other distracting features in PTC products as it could lead to epilepsy in photosensitive individuals.

2. Other considerations when developing websites:

  • include a “skip navigation” link at the top of webpages that allows people who use screen readers to ignore navigation links and skip directly to webpage content; 
  • minimize blinking, flashing, or other distracting features; <====
  • if they must be included, ensure that moving, blinking, or auto-updating objects or pages may be paused or stopped; 
  • design online forms to include descriptive HTML tags that provide persons with disabilities the information they need to complete and submit the forms; 
  • include visual notification and transcripts if sounds automatically play; 
  • provide a second, static copy of pages that are auto-refreshing or that require a timed-response; 
  • use titles, context, and other heading structures to help users navigate complex pages or elements (such as webpages that use frames).
