Rule ID Target Size 3
Conformance Required
Definition Button dimensions are at least 24 by 24 CSS pixels.
  • The intent of this success criterion is to help users who may have trouble activating a small target because of hand tremors, limited dexterity or other reasons. If the target is too small, it may be difficult to aim at the target.
  • Mice and similar pointing devices can be hard to use for these users, and a larger target will help them greatly in having positive outcomes on the web page.
