Example 2: As previously discussed, people who use screen readers (people
with vision impairments and people with dyslexia) expect that the order of
the site with CSS on matches the order of the site with CSS off

Proposed Change:

Change this example so that the order of the content is the same with CSS on
or off

Response from Working Group:

Success criteria 1.3.2 (formerly 1.3.3) does not require that the reading
order be the same with CSS off as with it on. It only requires that if the
order can change the meaning, the correct order can be determined. Example 2
is therefore an appropriate illustration of conforming to this success
Response from GSW:
Matching the order of the HTML with CSS on to CSS off is important to people
with dyslexia using screen readers as well as keyboard users. These people
use the visual presentation of the page but operate via the underlying HTML
- therefore it is important that both match.
