8.12 Level A − WCAG 2.0 Success Criterion 2.2.1 − Timing Adjustable

Ideally ensure processes on a website are not time dependent. If they are, ensure persons with disabilities can either adjust or stop the time limit so they can have enough time to complete their task. 

Before Rectification

A webpage sample containing a content overlay which warns the user that there are only two minutes remaining.

This example warns a person that time is about to expire.

After Rectification

A webpage sample containing a content overlay which warns the user that there are only two minutes remaining with an option for the user to extend the time limit.

A better approach is to allow the person to extend the time.
