Item Number: Success Criterion 3.1.3
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: SC level for 3.1.3
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
3.1.3 Unusual Words: A mechanism is available for identifying specific definitions of words or phrases used in an unusual or restricted way, including idioms and jargon. (Level AAA)



Comment: In general WCAG 2.0 does not provide enough guidance for improving the accessibility of web content for people with cognitive, language and/or learning limitations. At the very least, providing a mechanism for enabling users to easily obtain definitions of unusual or specialist phrases should be a Level AA success criterion.



Proposed Change:
Change the SC for 3.1.3 to AA
