Subject: CFC: 1.3.3/1.4.1 Errata
Importance: High

 

Call For Consensus — ends Tuesday May 23rd at 2:50pm Boston time.

 

The Working Group has discussed the addition of errata for 1.3.3 and 1.4.1 on the list (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-gl/2017AprJun/0650.html) and on the call on Thursday and the chairs believe that there is consensus for the changes that will be reflected in the errata (https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/errata/) as editorial errata.

 

After editorial errata:

 

1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics: Instructions provided for understanding and operating content do not rely solely on sensory characteristics of components such as shape, color, size, visual location, orientation, or sound. (Level A)  (added “color, “)

(note removed)

 

1.4.1 Use of Color: Color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element. (Level A) 

(note removed)

 

For background:

Call minutes: https://www.w3.org/2017/05/18-ag-minutes.html#item01

 

If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.
