2.4.7: This should be at Level 1. Determining the current location is
sometimes very difficult for both people who use screen readers and people
with cognitive disabilities

Proposed Change:

Move to Level 1

Response from Working Group:

This success criterion is at level AAA because not all web pages are part of
a set of web pages to which this success criterion can be applied. The
working group agrees that when it does apply, it is very important for
people with these disabilities.
Response from GSW:
If you are reasoning that this cannot be at Level 1 or 2 because of the
requirement that Level 1 and 2 SC must apply to all web pages then you
better move SC 2.4.5 (AA) which refers to "set of web pages" as 2.4.7 does.
Many Level 1 and 2 SC cannot be applied to all web pages, such as SC 2.4.4
(A) which refers to link text - not all web pages will have link text (ie. a
one page site).
