Summary of Issue: Technique G167 not well supported by Assistive Technology 
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Our screen reader tests of Technique G167 has shown that it is currently not sufficiently supported by Assistive Technology and therefore should not appear in the list of WCAG techniques. In our tests (compare http://testcases.bitvtest.de/index/html/form/g167.html ), it surfaced that currently only NVDA interprets the button as label of the input field before it.


Proposed Change:
Remove G167.
