Re: Accessibility of Signature Text Editor

I was showing you a nice example of something that passes WCAG 2.5.1.

If you don't have an alternate way for a user to provide their signature,
then it *might* be a failure of 2.5.1. It depends if the act of signing is
considered "essential". That is, I'm sure some kind of signature is
essential but does it have to be a mouse drawn signature? That's not a
question I can answer. It depends on your situation.
