hello John,

Guide to GL 3.1 L3 SC7

A spoken version of text content is available.


HHmm ... http://www.bonn.de has a spoken version produced by a voice service 
in Sweden... the spoken German is so bad that disability organisations 
complain.. but they offer an spoken version as required in these 
guidelines..
This might also be for signed video for key pages or passages. When made 
abroad it is possible that it will make accesibility more worse than 
better..
An alternate version thus of a website will not always make the page more 
accessible.. so skip this requirement.

And requiring only making products in the homeland conflicts with EU-law.
Since globalisation the economic world has changed dramatically the last 
years and also  EU-law and guidelines.
But I don't see this back in the guidelines...

Perhaps the working group is dreaming the USA are the only state on this 
globe and English the only language?? Besites: Great-Britain has not 
introduced the Euro as national currency as other EU-countries did.


.>[Adopted 26 May] A mechanism is available for identifying specific 
definitions of words used in an unusual or >restricted way, including idioms 
and jargon

Never when it is meant for  encouraging phantasy! Where are these 
exceptions: can you point me to an url where these exceptions are mentioned? 
Or is it impossible to have a website for phantasy comforming to level 3?
This might be too crazy for words when phantasy is forbidden..

greetings
