Operable 2.5 Input Modalities
Make it easier for users to operate functionality through various inputs beyond a keyboard.
- A slider that can be operated by dragging the thumb can also be operated with a keyboard via buttons or inputs.
- A list that can be reordered by dragging and dropping also has button controls.
