Just sending in my thoughts earlier so that we have more time on the call:

1.2.2 Captions (prerecorded) & 1.2.4 Captions (live): The WCAG WG meeting minutes do not explain why they think the sentence about players is inappropriate. Do they consider that the SCs apply directly to players as well? if so, this should be clarified in the intent I think.

1.4.4 Resize text: looking at the last paragraph again, the penultimate sentence does imply that if an application is relying upon platform capability it has to obviously support that capability in order to meet this SC. So the last sentence is redundant. Or we could modify that penultimate sentence to something like this:

This means that either the application either on its own or using the capabilities of the platform under it, provides some means for enlarging the text 200% (zoom or otherwise) without
loss of content or functionality.

Thanks,
