Hi all,

In my earlier message 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2010AprJun/0053.html) I 
suggested a change to the wording of A.3.2.3 (below). I have checked 
with Jeanne and it will be ok to make the change as long as we get 
sufficient approval on the list:


CURRENT WORDING:
A.3.2.3 Moving Targets: If a user interface component is moving (e.g.,
animated vector graphic), then authors can pause the movement.

PROPOSED WORDING:
A.3.2.3 Static Pointer Targets: User interface components that accept
pointer input are either stationary or authors can pause the movement.

REASON FOR PROPOSAL:
The earlier wording would require us to find authoring tools  with 
moving buttons etc. which is a problematic UI design as well as an 
accessibility obstacle. The new wording allows us to easily find 
implementations, while at the same time covering the moving UI eventuality.


If you approve of the change, please state this in a reply to the list.


Cheers,
Jan
