Dear WCAG WG

I sent my second response by accident.  The "save" 
and "send" buttons are adjacent. I cannot separate 
the letters well in the menu interface, so even 
with large print I mix them up.

The WCAG WG did not address my issues with 
accessibility support namely: the need for element 
level font / text styling. I did not challenge the 
fact that structured PDF meets physical criteria 
of 1.3.1.  It does.  None of the accessibility 
support cited addresses the issues I raised. So, I 
need to clarify the issues.

I think my original letter was to long and mixed 
issues with need.  I will take a week or two to 
develop a web page that will delineate access 
issues and the need in a separate sections.

My contention is that the accessibility support 
for structured PDF regarding 1.3.1 does not exist 
for people who have low vision and are not legally 
blind.  Acrobat Reader support is incomplete, and 
  Zoom Text is an inappropriate AT for much of 
this population.
