Could this concept be abstracted and aligned with FARs…
FARs to be used to write clear and understandable RFPs, contracts/deliverables/expectations, phase reviews (if phased project), final review at delivery, post purchase reviews…? Feed back into repository.
Where manual dexterity is required for operation
the opportunity to use alternative modes of operation must be provided
Where a control requires grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist to operate it, an accessible alternative means of operation that does not require these actions shall be provided.
^ at least one mode of operation must be provided that enables operation through actions that do not involve fine motor control, path dependant gestures, pinching, twisting of the wrist, tight grasping, or simultaneous manual actions (e.g., one handed operation)
Type of compliance
The ICT has operable parts that requires grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist to operate.
Check that there is an accessible alternative means of operation that does not require these actions.

Supporting Features that meet and exceed base criteria
