Another +1 here

Pseudo-assistive technology like the use of lay-overs are not the same thing as the text in the  SC. There’s even a danger to promote such technologies as they are often laborious to handle, one-off on every site and provide for a means to pull out off the real problem for site owners which is making websites accessible / using standards to start with.

I also do see the need for these kind of personal adjustments from a user perspective but besides these technologies we also have the accessibility settings in the OS, the settings in a browser, plugins / extensions, different devices and assistive technology.

The lay-overs are just another fix op top possibility and the SC should be about a standard implementation.

Regards,
Jake
