Summary of Issue: problem with example of change of context
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
You say :

\"Example of a Failure: A help dialog

When a field receives focus, a help dialog describing the field opens. As a keyboard user tabs through the Web page, the dialog opens every time the user attempts to tab past the field.\" 

but in the same page we found : \"Small changes in content, such as an expanding outline or dynamic menu, do not change the context.\"

I don\'t see why the help dialog example didn\'t match that exception. If it\'s a failure i don\'t understand that Using scripts to provide context-sensitive bubble help (future link) is a sufficient technique for Success Criterion 3.3.5

I think you need to be more explicit about what is exactly a change of context.

Furthermore, I agree with the technique F55 but is moving the focus when focus is received a failure too ?

For example, an text field used for a date formating. When user focus the input I move the focus to a calendar widget to let him choose his date.
