Word spacing (WCAG 2.1)

I would like to submit a request to add the ability to change the spacing between words in the text. There is space between letters, but there is no space between words. Please add this, especially since it is such a common CSS attribute. This is also one of the WCAG 2.1 AA requirements, which will soon become mandatory and it would be nice to be able to use it in Figma.

WCAG 2.1 will require for AA, among other things:
- Word spacing to at least 0.16 times the font size;

  • Line height (line spacing) to at least 1.5 times the font size;
  • Spacing following paragraphs to at least 2 times the font size;
  • Letter spacing (tracking) to at least 0.12 times the font size;

Agree with the call to add the CSS word-spacing property to Figma.

I think you’re misunderstanding the WCAG SC though. That criteria just requires that your front-end build allows the user to increase word spacing without affecting content or functionality: Understanding Success Criterion 1.4.12: Text Spacing | WAI | W3C
