Summary of Issue: Applicability of General WCAG 2.0 techniques.
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
PDF Technology Notes -http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2011/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20110621/pdf.html#pdf_notes

Applicability of techniques that aren’t specific to PDF may be missed by authors just
interested in PDF techniques and only reading the page “PDF Techniques for WCAG
2.0”.

Proposed Change:
Include a statement in the Technology Notes that the general techniques from WCAG
2.0 must also be followed in preparing PDF files, for example, techniques for sufficient
contrast and providing abbreviations.

Such a statement about general techniques could possibly be placed in the paragraph
preceding the H1 before the Table of Contents where there is a link to ‘other
technologies’, though repeating it within the Technology Notes with examples is also
recommended.
