My task

7.1 Much more time to read displayed information.
current mapping CP 2.4, CP 4.4, CP 4.5

somewhat related 3.3 toggle animated or blinking text (this could be covered
under 4.5 - stop multimedia.)

7.2 Much more time to complete actions - and no feeling of time pressure.
current mapping CP 2.4, CP 4.4, CP 4.5
ok

7.3 Information necessary to plan their actions in advance.
current mapping CP 2.4, CP 4.4, CP 4.5, CP 5.5, CP 9.6, CP 9.9, CP 10.4, CP
10.5

add 5.1 No automatic content focus change - distraction/confusion problems
when focus/viewport changes unexpectedly.
add 5.2 keep viewport on top - see 5.1
add 5.4 selection and focus in viewport - easier to plan/adjust action when
you can see what you have already selected
add 9.1 provide content focus - must know where you are in order to move
forward
add 9.4 restore viewport state history - must be able to know where you have
been
add 9.5 no events on focus change - see 5.1
add 10.2 highlight selection, content focus, enabled elements, visited
links - knowing where you are

7.4 Ability to avoid visual or auditory distractions that prevent focusing
on a task
current mapping CP 3.1, CP 3.2, CP 3.3, CP 3.4, CP 3.5, CP 3.6, CP 4.4, CP
4.5, CP 4.7, CP 4.8, CP 4.10, CP 4.14

add 2.6 respect synchronization cues - distraction if items are out of sync
add 4.1 configure text scale
add 4.2 configure font family
add 4.3 configure text colors
add 4.6 do not obscure captions
add 5.1 No automatic content focus change - distraction/confusion problems
when focus/viewport changes unexpectedly.
add 5.2 keep viewport on top - see 5.1
add 9.5 no events on focus change - see 5.1


8.1 Products designed so they can be tactilely explored without activation.
current mapping CP 6.1, CP 6.2, CP 6.3, CP 6.4, CP 9.5, CP 9.6, CP 9.9, CP
10.4

seems to be hardware specific. if we assume reading with mouse or cursor as
touching the content, can a user explore/read content without activating a
control or event. then the following apply

1.1 full keyboard access
2.4 allow time independent interaction
5.1 No automatic content focus change
5.3 manual viewport open only
5.5 confirm form submission
7.2 respect input configuration conventions
7.3 respect operating environment conventions - don't override user expected
behavior
9.5 no events on focus change
9.6 show event handlers
9.9 allow structured navigation
10.4 provide outline view

remove 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 (related to DOM) ? is  DOM access necessary

8.2 Ability to operate controls with tremor or spasmodic movements without
inadvertent entries.
current mapping CP 1.1, CP 1.2, CP 1.3, CP 6.1, CP 6.2, CP 6.3, CP 6.4, CP
6.5, CP 6.6, CP 6.7, CP 6.8, CP 7.3, CP 7.4, CP 8.2, CP 9.5, CP 9.6, CP 9.8,
CP 9.9, CP 10.1, CP 10.4, CP 10.5

8.2 seem to be more related to operating system conventions (sticky keys,
bounce keys, key repeat) than to specific functionality of the UA. That
said, the current mapping covers nearly any interaction with the content.

8.3 Controls that are not so easy to activate that they are activated by a
slight brush of hand.
current mapping CP 1.1, CP 1.2, CP 1.3, CP 6.1, CP 6.2, CP 6.3, CP 6.4, CP
6.5, CP 6.6, CP 6.7, CP 6.8, CP 7.3, CP 7.4, CP 8.2, CP 9.5, CP 9.6, CP 9.8,
CP 9.9, CP 10.1, CP 10.4, CP 10.5

seems redundant to 8.2

9.1 Notification when the product detects errors made by the user.
current mapping CP 1.3, CP 2.1, CP 8.1, CP 8.2

add 2.5 make captions, transcripts, audio descriptions available - may be
audio or video error message
add 4.4 slow multimedia
add 4.5 stop, start, pause multimedia - see 2.5
add 6.6 programmatic notification of changes

9.2 Unambiguous guidance on what to do in the event of a reported error.
current mapping CP 1.3, CP 2.1, CP 8.1, CP 8.2

add 12.1 provide accessible documentation

9.3 Mechanism to go back and undo the last thing(s) they did.
current mapping CP 5.5, CP 8.1, CP 9.3, CP 9.4, CP 9.7, CP 9.9

add 1.1 full keyboard access
add 2.4 allow time-independent interaction
add 9.5 no events on focus change

9.4 Ability to reset (to initial condition).
current mapping CP 9.4, CP 11.5

ok
