Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Should this be extended to include auditory presentation, e.g., the sound of

the content as presented in, for example, VoiceXML?



Such an extension would surely be of benefit to people who are deaf in

accessing Web-based voice/sound applications and similar content. For example,

instructions such as \"The selected items are read in a male voice; unselected

items are read in a female voice\" are unhelpful, even if the distinction

between selected/unselected items in the user interface can be

programmatically determined.

Proposed Change:
Consider extending this to cover the auditory presentation (i.e., sound) of

the content.
