7.7. Provide a method for stopping all animated content

A way to pause and restart animation must be provided for each animated content (scrolling, flashing, movement, etc.).


You do not need to provide a progress bar or pause/play button for animations that last less than 5 seconds.


If the website offers a lot of moving content, a good accessibility practice is to provide a centralized system for deactivating and restarting all animations of the website at once.

Screen capture, caption below.
This animated carousel has a button for pausing the movement.
Screenshot of an "Accessibility" panel in the banner of a website, it allows you to choose the level of contrast ("Default", "High" or "Reversed") and the state of the animations ("Enabled" or "Disabled").
This feature allows you to enable or disable from a single place all the animations of the site.
