The notion of a 'view' is relative in different modalities. Some users are
sighted, some not. A sighted person may glance at a page and quickly understand
context etc, a non-sighted person may need to be able to easily navigate to an
area of the page, or quickly tab to various elements to be given this sense of
context. Do you follow?

If so, there should be a way of supporting a non-visual mode of access (the
spec currently refers to it as "media-specific manner most useful to the
user"). I suggest the text needs to be more specific in /how/ to do this. In
its simplest terms - this could be for example, a parent element in the DOM
