I'm having problems assessing against success criteria 1.4.1 Use of color





The sufficient techniques for the situation I'm evaluating are:



*         G14: Ensuring that information conveyed by color differences is also available in text



*         H92: Including a text cue for colored form control labels (HTML)



*         G182: Ensuring that additional visual cues are available when text color differences are used to convey information



*         G183: Using a contrast ratio of 3:1 with surrounding text and providing additional visual cues on focus for links or controls where color alone is used to identify them





The particular sufficient technique I'm struggling with is



G183: Using a contrast ratio of 3:1 with surrounding text and providing additional visual cues on focus for links or controls where color alone is used to identify them



This technique allows a visual cue on focus for links..



F73: Failure of Success Criterion 1.4.1 due to creating links that are not visually evident without color vision





Would fail a link which has a visual cue on focus?



Am I missing something?
