Summary of Issue: Touchscreen Accessibility
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Touchscreen issues are covered by WCAG 2?

SC 2.1.1 requires the keyboard accessibility. What about a touchscreen interface?

For example, 'onmouseover' and 'onkeypress' don't work on the touchscreens such as iPhone and iPad.

Does WCAG 2 require the touchscreen users to buy and use a keyboard for such devices?  

Proposed Change:
Just to make sure if WCAG 2 covers touchscreen issues or not. WAIC need an answer from WCAG WG in order for JIS X 8341-3:2010(our standards) to harmonize with WCAG 2. Thank you very much.
