More than one way is available to locate an item in a set of items, whether it is a Web page within a set of Web pages, a document within a set of non-web documents, or a program within a set of software programs. (Level AA)

Rationale

Users need to be able to locate information in a way that best suits their needs. With access to multiple ways of locating information, users may prefer one way over another. For example, a user may prefer a document's search function to locate specific information rather than scrolling through a table of contents. Alternatively, a user who prefers to understand a Web site's structure may find a table of contents or site map more useful.

Notes: Individual documents or software programs (not in a set) should mark this checkpoint N/A because it applies only to things that appear in a set. Refer to the definitions of set of documents and set of software programs to determine when a group of documents or software is considered a set. These definitions require that every item in the set be independently reachable, and not include a “step in a process” which cannot be reached in any other way

Exception: Items in a process (either a result or a step) are exempt from this checkpoint.

Development Techniques

Review the General techniques as well as other tabs applicable to your technology.  Prioritize the use of technology-specific techniques, and implement the General techniques as needed. You are always required to find, understand and implement accessible code techniques to meet the checkpoint. The documented techniques and supplements are not exhaustive; they illustrate acceptable ways to achieve the spirit of the checkpoint. If numbered, techniques are in order of preference, with recommended techniques listed first. Where used, IBM information that complements the WCAG techniques is indicated as supplemental.

Web (HTML, ARIA, CSS) techniques

There are no specific Web techniques for this checkpoint. Refer to the General techniques section.

Mobile Native (iOS) techniques

This checkpoint applies to a set of software programs. Because sets of software that meet this definition appear to be extremely rare, there are no specific Mobile Native (iOS) techniques for this checkpoint (2.4.5).

Eclipse techniques

This checkpoint applies to a set of software programs. Because sets of software that meet this definition appear to be extremely rare, there are no specific Eclipse techniques for this checkpoint (2.4.5).

Windows-based (MSAA+IA2) techniques

This checkpoint applies to a set of software programs. Because sets of software that meet this definition appear to be extremely rare, there are no specific Windows-based techniques for this checkpoint (2.4.5).
