Item Number: Success Criterion 2.1.1
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: TE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
As proposed by Charles McCathieNevile in commenting on the November 2005

working draft, the term \"textual interface\" should be used instead of

\"keyboard interface\". Some software interfaces do not accept keystroke input

directly, but instead receive character input; they are not \"keyboard

interfaces\" as defined in the glossary.

Proposed Change:
Substitute \"textual interface\" for \"keyboard interface\", and define \"textual

interface\" as an interface used by software to receive characters or keystroke

input. Under this definition, keystroke input is included; thus compatibility

with a keyboard interface would satisfy the success criterion, as would

compatibility with any software mechanism capable of receiving character

input, whether from a keyboard or any other kind of input device.
