My challenge would be that if a website works with only one set of or a couple sets of browser/screen reader combinations does it not meet the wording of “. it [the website] works with assistive technologies (AT) and the accessibility features of operating systems, browsers, and other user agents." 
This statement does not say all of each or all of any.

Am I getting too literal I’m my interpretation of it. 

Companies cannot be expected to support every and all combinations of all of the items in the statement. 
Therefore, if they have a set that they know works through their own testing or validation from a 3rd party and meets the guidelines with that set, then why cannot they state which ones they support and use to have their website compliant?
