(h) When animation is displayed, the information shall be displayable in at least one non-animated presentation mode at the option of the user. Not ApplicableIDEAL Conference® does not use animation to display information to the user.
(i) Color coding shall not be used as the only means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element. SupportedIDEAL Conference® does not use color coding as the only means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element color to convey information.
(j) When a product permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings, a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels shall be provided. SupportedIDEAL Conference® supports operating system settings for high contrast color schemes that make the screen easier to view for some users by heightening screen contrast with alternate color combinations.IDEAL Conference® permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings using a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels. .
(k) Software shall not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz. SupportedIDEAL Conference® does not use not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz.
(l) When electronic forms are used, the form shall allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues. Not ApplicableIDEAL Conference® does not use electronic forms.
