Module 4: Checkpoint 4—Process completion

Conformance: Mandatory


Process completion must not rely on client-side scripting or embedded objects.

Benefits of conformance

  • Allows universal access (for all users) through support for:
    • user agents and assistive technologies that cannot process scripts and objects.
    • users who due to security or performance concerns disable scripts and objects in their browser (user agent).

Risks of non-conformance

Implementation advice

More information

The use of scripting to improve the user experience is encouraged; however users must be able to complete any process with client-side scripting disabled. Techniques of progressive enhancement support a richer experience without compromising accessibility.

This requirement also ensures universal access by all users, browsers and devices (including mobile devices).
