Subject: ACTION-2053: Draft-y language for Accessibility Considerations sections


Here is some drafty language.  This might need to be tuned for the various specifications that we are looking at, but it is a starting point.


N.N. Accessibility Considerations


This specification has no defined user interface.  Consequently, there are no specific accessibility requirements on implementations. However, to the extent that an implementation provides user interactions to support this specification, the implementation must ensure that interface is exposed to the platform accessibility API.  Moreover, implementors should take into consideration the needs or their users with varying abilities when designing solutions that support this specification. For example, the use of biometric authentication techniques should be varied enough to allow for people with widely different physical abilities.


P.S.  Note that this came up in the Payments Accessibility meeting today too,  The Browser Payment API spec and the Payment Application spec will both need language like this.
