Quick Tip: Mobile menus

When zooming the content on a webpage (Ctrl + on Windows, and command + on Mac) the navigation will often change to a collapsed menu that was built primarily for use on a small, vertical touchscreen. This mobile menu is a common source of accessibility problems for users who enlarge the page and users who navigate the page with a keyboard on either desktop or mobile devices. Remember the needs of various users when building and testing mobile menus.
