In this section you will find examples of how the five criteria for cognitive accessibility work in practice.

For each criterion there are two examples:

  • one example of an interface with the criterion implemented
  • one example showing the same interface without the criterion implemented

The examples each include short instructions to guide the user through the interface. Please follow these directions to get the best understanding of how each criterion works in practice.

A good way to highlight the differences between the interface with and without the criterion implemented is to open two parallel windows with one example in each.

Even though the changes may seem subtle, user tests show that all of the criteria do make a big difference for supporting users with a variety of cognitive impairments.
