From the minutes of the meeting


RESOLUTION: To add the following to the understanding document for SC 1.2.4 This success criterion was intended to apply to broadcast of synchronized media and is not intended to require that two-way multimedia calls between two or more individuals through web apps must be captioned regardless of the needs of users. Responsibility for providing captions would fall to the content providers (the callers) or the “host” caller, and not the application.
RESOLUTION: To add the following to the Understanding document for SC 1.2.9 This success criterion was intended to apply to broadcast of audio and is not intended to require that two-way audio calls between two or more individuals through web apps must be captioned regardless of the needs of users. Responsibility for providing captions would fall to the content providers (the callers) or the “host” caller, and not the application.
RESOLUTION: To Add the following 2 paragraphs to Understanding document for SC 2.4.7 The purpose of this success criterion is to help a person know which element among multiple elements has the keyboard focus. If there is only one keyboard actionable control on the screen, the success criterion would be met because the visual design presents only one keyboard actionable item.
     Note that a keyboard focus indicator can take different forms. One common way is a caret within the text field to indicate that the text field has the keyboard focus. Another is a visual change to a button to indicate that that button has the keyboard focus.
RESOLUTION: To modify the end of the first paragraph of the INTENT of SC 3.3.4 to read: Likewise, it may be an unrecoverable error if users unintentionally modify or delete data stored in a database that they later need to access, such as their entire travel profile in a travel services web site. When referring to modification or deletion of 'user controllable' data, the intent is to prevent mass loss of data such as deleting a file or record. It is not the intent to require a confirmation for each save command or the simple creation or editing of documents, records or other data.

The text for understanding blocks in the WCAG2ICT work pages have been amended to reflect these changes to Understanding WCAG 2.0.  For clarity the edits are shown in bold font and [square brackets] to make it easier to find the edits.
