Item Number: Important New Terms Used in WCAG 2.0
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: GE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Rationale: In the term programmatically determined, the concept of total determinism is not clear enough.  There needs to be a clear difference between programmatically determined (recognized by a deterministic algorithm) and non-deterministically accessed by an AI heuristic --as in optical character recognition.  

Proposed Change:
Change:  In Introduction: Important New Terms Used in WCAG 2.0

Add to the description of programmatically determined…\"This means that the author is responsible for ensuring that the content is delivered in such a way that software can access it [with no chance of error]\".  You could also say positively… [with perfect accuracy].
