<proposed>
1. For all non-text content that is functional, such as graphical links
or buttons,
text alternatives
provide the same function as the non-text content. [I]

Rationale:
Clears up a potential ambiguity- the text alternative should do more
than simply *identifying* the function or purpose of the non-text
content.
 
I believbe this is an editorial change that does not affect the
substance of the success criterion.
