The closest we get to this is the following example from How to Meet
3.1.5:

3. An e-learning application.
 
An online course about Spanish cultural history includes a unit on
Moorish architecture. The unit includes text written for students with
different reading
abilities. Photographs and drawings of buildings illustrate
architectural concepts and styles. Graphic organizers are used to
illustrate complex relationships,
and an audio version using synthetic speech is available. The metadata
for each version describes the academic level of the content and
includes a readability
score based on formulas developed for Spanish-language text. The
learning application uses this metadata and metadata about the students
to provide versions
of instructional content that match the needs of individual students.

I had the IMS Learner Information Profile in mind when I wrote this
example, but didn't mention it by name; we could add it to the Resources
section for 3.1.5 (I think I had included it in some draft for 3.1 last
year).

Something Missing? / Synchronization with ACCLIP Specifications

I would also suggest synchronizing WCAG guidelines with components of
the IMS ACCLIP specifications.

 

Anyone got any comments on this one?
