           Summary: -webkit-text-size-adjust prevents users from
                    explicitly overriding font size
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.7
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Accessibility
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: james at cookiecrook.com


Accessibility: -webkit-text-size-adjust prevents zoom users from overriding font size

1. Load attached test case that uses -webkit-text-size-adjust: none;
2. Cmd= and Cmd- to increase and decrease the font size.

Does not work. This is a serious accessibility bug for low-vision or zoom users, and a usability bug for all users.

Regression occurred at the time text-size-adjust was implemented.

This property should prevent webkit from resizing text automatically, but it should never prevent the user from resizing the text explicitly.

This is also in violation of WCAG Guideline 1.4.4 and UAAG Guideline 4.1.

WCAG Guideline 1.4:
1.4.4 Resize text: Except for captions and images of text, text can be resized without assistive technology up to 200 percent without loss of content or functionality. (Level AA)

UAAG Guideline 4. Ensure user control of rendering
4.1 Configure text scale (P1) (1) Allow global configuration of the scale of visually rendered text content. Preserve distinctions in the size of rendered text as the user increases or decreases the scale. (2) As part of satisfying provision one of this checkpoint, provide a configuration option to override rendered text sizes specified by the author or user agent defaults.
