3.3.2 Describe Accessibility Features:

For each user agent feature that is used to meet UAAG 2.0, at least
one of the following is true: (Level A)

    (a) Described in the documentation: Use of the feature is
explained in the user agents's documentation; or
    (b) Described in the interface: Use of the feature is explained in
the user agent user interface; or
    (c) Platform service: The feature is a service provided by an
underlying platform.

Intent of Success Criterion 3.3.2 :
Users with disabilities that need to use the accessibility features of
the user agent user interface can easily find descriptions of how to
use and configure the features to work with assistive technology.
These descriptions can be provided in the documentation or user
interface of the authoring tool or by the underlying platform, if the
feature is in fact a service of that platform.

Examples of Success Criterion 3.3.2 :
Andromeda has a tremor that makes using the mouse efficiently
difficult. She prefers using keyboard. Andomeda decides to explore
using a new browser. Opening Help, she finds a section entitled
"Browser Features Supporting Accessibility", a vendor provides a
detailed description of user agent features which provide
accessibility. In the Accessibility section she finds an item called
Keyboard Shortcuts which lists all of the functions and commands
available from the keyboard.
A user is exploring the menus of a user agent and finds a feature
named Use My Style Sheet. Activating the feature, the user quickly
learns that this feature allows custom CSS stylesheets to be created
to help make web content more accessible.
