Please read this email below about what we need to do to keep our SC into WCAG. (implementation requirements for WCAG)Can you help with any of these items such as a conforming website or ATAll the best...lisa

I think that the ones that we will really need to review are the ones indicated below. We don’t need to document accessibility support for SC that are up to the author (e.g. Target size) or that we’ve already demonstrated the viability of for WCAG 2.0 (e.g. Label in name). So I think what we need to do is: 1. For each accepted SC, identify techniques 2. For the indicated SC below, test and document support using two technologies with at least 4 combinations of platform/user agent/AT. This will mean that there are ~10 SC that we need to provide this information for, and would make the exit criteria: 1. At least 5 conforming Web sites 1&lt;https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FTR%2F2008%2FCR-WCAG20-20080430%2F%23statusnote1&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7Cac5470dbb65345043a9108d5125801b6%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636435091549920194&amp;sdata=N3mbVOZFXC72ujK%2FArmJg8qt3q%2BitEzTkpTHh2EMrtY%3D&amp;reserved=0&gt; are available, of which * At least four conform at level AA, * At least one conforms at level AAA; 1.

In HTML we pointed to techniques frequently, and we should have techniques that represent the full spectrum of ways that a technology is supported by assistive technologies, but it isn’t required for anyone to make a WCAG 2.1 conformance claim. The support documentation is useful for authors to be able to refer to if they are trying to see what works across different platforms, but as we also see from the documentation it gets out of date and people probably aren’t using it on any kind of regular basis. I think that it would be great to have accessibility support documentation for technologies like HTML5 as there are new elements that didn’t exist with HTML 4.01, but I don’t think that this impact WCAG 2.1 SC as much as it does WCAG 2.0 SC and as a result I think that this shouldn’t be part of the official exit criteria. For Steve or anyone who feels that we do need this, can you articulate what the scenario might be where there is a negative outcome caused by not having it?

All the best
