Forwarding to WAI-IG list for discussion.

As a quick note to help with the discussion, I can tell you that the first question you will be asked is whether the online brochure is implemented using markup languages that support the style properties. If not, then 1.4.12 won’t apply.

We create printed brochures for a cruise line and they desire to be WCAG 2.1 compliant for their downloadable brochures posted on their website. The online brochures are the same as the printed with adjustments made for color contrast. The client is particularly concerned about the Success Criterion 1.4.12: text spacing. We design the brochures for print first. Then we adjust color contrast and send them to a company to be remediated to make them accessible. The layouts and text do not change in this process. Then they are posted to the clients website. The brochures are also emailed upon request.
My question: Is it necessary for the text in these brochures to follow the guidelines found in Success Criterion 1.4.12?
Thank you,
