Thanks for the links.  With Google Translate, (and some very rusty Danish 
skills) I think I understand most of this.  May I ask some clarifying 
questions?  (To help me understand detail that is not quite coming through 
the translation. )

1)  These are required for "public institutions".  I assume that means 
government, including schools.  Obviously it is not required but 
recommended for business.  Does the requirement extend to any other 

2)  I understand these to be requirements.   What happens if the 
requirements are not met.  Are there laws associated with the 
requirements?  Or are these more like guidelines?

3)  Can you help me understand what the difference is between Priority 1 
and Priority 2?  Is Priority 1 mandatory, and Priority 2 optional? 

4)  Further when I look at the requirement for TTS on R11, it uses the 
(translated word) Recommendation for TTS, instead of requirement.  Can you 
help me understand how mandatory the TTS requirement is?

Hi, Brian!
Of course, here it is:

As far as I have been able to figure out this is a standard.
I’ve commented a little bit, but this is in Norwegian and is therefore 
probably not very interesting/useful:

Can you please provide a reference to the Swedish standard you speak of? 
And, is it just a recommendation or a standard?

Hi, Harry! 
I totally agree. 
In some new Swedish guidelines for web developments (only public 
authorities have to follow these) accessibility is one of the categories. 
The first guideline say: follow WCAG 2. The other 43 accessibility 
guidelines cover forms, languages, links and other things. In one of the 
guidelines it is stated that talking websites are required! I was quite 
surprised when I read this! If I counted correctly, 33 of the 44 
guidelines in the accessibility section are also found under usabilityJ!
