presented to the Taskforce about 3.1.1.The agreed with our reasoning, wrt
content, testing, and implementation. They had no other solutions or
suggestions. Agreed that removal of 3.1.1 was reasonable.

We discussed other aspects of UAs including the use of extensions to meet
UAAG. One point made was - has UAWG considered that extensions only work on
high powered (e.g. desktop) browsers, and are not available on smart
devices(cell phones and some tablets).

<jim> I believe we have the above covered in UAAG's conformance claims, if
the UA doesn't have the feature, and there is no extension available be
cause the platform does not support extensions, then document the
limitation. And, I think it is only a matter of time before extensions

also, a request for a browser global setting to disable or mute
announcements from other apps running in tabs and interrupting the task/tab
on which I am working.
