The screen orientation (such as portrait or landscape) of mobile applications should not be restricted to a single mode. Users should be able to shift the orientation of their device between portrait and landscape without losing readability. Additionally, upon opening a page, it should appear in the current orientation of the user.

Users of assistive technologies may not have access to orientation features on their devices or assistive technologies.
