2.4.7: This should be at Level 1. Determining the current location is
sometimes very difficult for both people who use screen readers and people
with cognitive disabilities

Proposed Change:

Move to Level 1

----------------------------
Response from Working Group:
----------------------------

This success criterion is at level AAA because not all web pages are part of
a set of web pages to which this success criterion can be applied. The
working group agrees that when it does apply, it is very important for
people with these disabilities.
----------------------------
Response from GSW:
----------------------------
If you are reasoning that this cannot be at Level 1 or 2 because of the
requirement that Level 1 and 2 SC must apply to all web pages then you
better move SC 2.4.5 (AA) which refers to "set of web pages" as 2.4.7 does.
Many Level 1 and 2 SC cannot be applied to all web pages, such as SC 2.4.4
(A) which refers to link text - not all web pages will have link text (ie. a
one page site).
