Thanks for clarification, Gregg.

This should be an action item for the editors-- to clarify the wording
that specifies which techniques/combinations are sufficient.

Yes that needs to be clearer.

It is the UPPER list that is the 'sufficient' list.  The upper list then
refers to the lower lists of technology specific techniques.  Often the
lower are part of an AND statement.  In that case the lower are not
sufficient in themselves.  They must be used in conjunction with the
ANDed item above.

I have a clarification question about sufficient techniques.   In the
to meet document when the phrase, "The following combinations of
techniques are deemed to be sufficient by the WCAG Working Group to meet
success criterion N.N.N" is followed by a list of general and also a
list of technology specific techniques, I assume that only one of the
techniques from either list is necessary for last call.  Is this

Several success criteria have a general techniques that state,  "Using
technology-specific standard techniques for," followed by some general
description of the technology specific techniques listed in the How to
Meet document.  We should have some consistent wording for the first
part of each technique.  And, is this really a general technique that
needs a formal technique document and tests?
