Hello,

I had an action from today's meeting to update 4.5 around configuration.  This can go in a survey but if folks have any thoughts feel free to send here in reply.

I believe in general we expect that user agents will do the work necessary for our configuration area for all settings.  That's what makes the language here a bit awkward.  Writing this to include accessibility makes it sound like we want only accessibility and something different than general behavior.  Leaving accessibility out makes the requirement sound too broad and less testable.  We also in general agreed that this guideline doesn't need to address the ease of getting to these settings and configuration because other guidelines cover that for the general use situation.

I could also live with taking accessibility out of this or just puttttttttttit in the title.

Current:
Guideline 4.5 Store preference settings.
4.5.1 Save Settings: User agent preference settings are stored between sessions. (Level A)
4.5.2 User Profiles: The user can save and retrieve multiple sets of user agent preference settings. (Level AA)
4.5.3 Portable Profiles: Sets of preferences are stored as separate files (allowing them to be transmitted electronically). (Level AAA)
4.5.4 Preferences Wizard: A "wizard" helps the user to configure (at least) the accessibility-related user agent preferences. (Level AAA)

Proposed:
Guideline 4.5 Configure and Store accessibility preference settings.
4.5.1 Reconfigure Accessibility Defaults: The user agent will allow default settings that impact accessibility to be reconfigured by the user. (Level A)
4.5.2 Save Accessibility Settings: User agent accessibility preference settings are stored between sessions. (Level A)
4.5.3 Accessibility User Profiles: The user can save and retrieve multiple sets of user agent preference settings. (Level AA)
4.5.4 Accessibility Portable Profiles: Sets of preferences are stored as separate files (allowing them to be transmitted electronically). (Level AAA)
4.5.5 Accessibility Preferences Wizard: A "wizard" helps the user to configure (at least) the accessibility-related user agent preferences. (Level AAA)
