Dexterity/Mobility

For those with dexterity difficulties and strain injuries the mouse and even the keyboard can be difficult to use, along with other input devices, so it is important to have alternative options for navigating around a website. If the features are available via a few select keys on the keyboard it is usually possible to design other input devices to work with these web pages which can help those with severe mobility difficulties. There is also the option of speech recognition which can depend on a good use of headings in the web page design and good layout remains vital for all users with a logical tabbing order.
