Fwd: Add "Error correction (Processes)" to WCAG 2.2 draft


Alastair has put forward a proposal for incorporating Error Correction
since the last CFC didn't pass.   The email from AG is below. If you have
thoughts on this approach, I encourage you to respond on the AG list.

Hi Everyone,

The CFC did not pass, apologies for the delay in finalising this one.

I think it is worth one final shot if a small adjustment helps.

Of the issues raised:

   - Gundula raised an issue, but off-list confirmed she could live with

   - Justine raised an issue which I think can be tackled in the
   understanding document.
   NB: Adding ‘essential’ to the end of the 1st bullet doesn’t work with
   the definition.

   - Jon & Sailesh raised issues around how it fits with 3.3.4 & 3.3.6

On the last point, what if we adjusted the levels so that we had:

3.3.4 Error Prevention (Legal, Financial, Data) – Level A, moving from AA.

3.3.X Error Correction (Processes) – Level AA

3.3.6 Error Prevention (All) – Level AAA

This doc shows the three SCs together:

The gap COGA were most interesting in filling was to enable correction
before you finalise a process. That is not covered (properly) by 3.3.4. In
WCAG 2.1 the aim was to update 3.3.4, but that didn’t work out.

Would that adjustment to the levels make sense?

Kind regards,

Call For Consensus — ends Wednesday July 15th at midday Boston time.

The Working Group has discussed adding the new SC “Error correction
(Processes)” to the WCAG 2.2 draft:


The changes, preview of the documents, and survey link are detailed in this
pull request:


If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not
been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not
being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before
the CfC deadline.

Kind regards,
