Summary of Issue: Guideline 1.3 covering the needs of people with low vision
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):

There have been some issues raised around WCAG 2.0's coverage of the needs of people with low vision. At a minimum, coverage under Guideline 1.3 needs to be clarified in the Understanding document.

Additionally, we have been re-looking closely at Guideline 1.3 and Success Criterion 1.3.1 along with their corresponding sections in the Understanding document and feel that it is important to revisit this issue.

So this is a brief comment to request that we have further discussion, before the updated version of the Techniques and Understanding documents are published.

Specifics to follow. Thanks in advance.
