Guideline 1.1 Ensure that non-Web-based functionality is
accessible.[Implementing 1.1] 
1.1.1	Non-Web-Based Accessible (Level A): Non-Web-based user agent user
interfaces comply with and cite the "Level A" requirements of standards or
operating environment conventions that benefit accessibility. The "Level A"
requirements are those that are functionally equivalent to WCAG Level A
success criteria. (Level A) 

The following are for all of Guideline 1.1
Intent of Success Criterion 1.1.1: 
The user should be able to easily discover detailed information about the
user agent's adherence to accessibility standards of the operating
environment or adherence to external accessibility requirements without
installing and testing the accessibility features. 

Examples of Success Criterion 1.1.1 : 
User agent X lists the platform accessibility tools (high contrast, show
sounds, sticky keys, etc) supported. Additionally, the user agent lists all
of the platform accessibility APIs or other APIs that are supported.
"Google Chrome supports the Windows Accessibility API (MSAA) to display
accessibility information and events for its features and web content.
