Wendy proposes the following for GL 1.1 L1 SC4:
 
<proposed>
4. Non-text content that does not convey information, functionality,
or create a specific sensory experience is implemented such that it can
be ignored by assistive technology. [I] {Editorial: replaced "provide
information" with "convey information" and added "create a specific" to
"sensory experience" for consistency. Issue 1487 - replaced "marked"
with "implemented.}
 
 
</proposed>
 
The following is editorial only to make the sentence gramatically
parallel and make it follow the order of SC 1-3 above (functional,
convey information, create sensory experience).
<editorial>
4. Non-text content that is not functional, is not used to convey
information, 
and does not create a specific sensory experience is implemented such
that it can
be ignored by assistive technology. [I] 
</editorial>
 
Another possibility would be:
 
<version2>
Non-text conteent is marked such that it can be ignored by assistive
technology if the non-text content is not functional, is not used to
convey information, and does not create a specific sensory experience.
</version2>
