Item Number: Success Criterion 2.4.7
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Summary of Issue: Conformance level too low
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
We think the conformance level for this criterion should be level A because otherwise it would be very hard for user without a pointing device to navigate through webpages.

For Level AA it should be compulsory to provide a mechanism (for example CSS) to make the focus visible.

Proposed Change:
level change from AA to AA + at level AA the web page should provide a visible focus (more than the user agents provide at default settings)
