DavidP:  I like every here too and we used to have something about a documented accessibility api and such.  I gather that we are talking about components of the user interface with content in them and not the user interface and the content it is rendering.  If the latter, it needs to be separate.

Jim: we intend it to mean - Each user interface component in the user agent user interface and every user interface component in the rendered content (for example controls in a web application or form) must have its name, role, state, value, and description made available via an accessibility platform architecture.  We switched from API to accessibility platform architecture because not all platforms have an API and we are trying to be as technology agnostic as possible and still be coherent.

DavidP: It just meant I had no comment but didn't want to leave it blank and to explain a bit of why.

Jim: 'no comment' would be fine. 

Jim
