Your comment on Visual Presentation: Understanding Success Criterion 1.4.3:
> Document: UW
> Item Number: Understanding Success Criterion 1.4.3
> Part of Item: Intent
> Comment Type: technical
> Summary of Issue: expansion of 'not just text'
> Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
> the closing para in 'intent' mentions graphs and charts - other complex
> informative images such as diagrams and maps should also be mentioned.
> Proposed Change:
>  "Data presented in charts and graphs ...", suggest saying "Data and
> information ... " and adding "diagrams" (and possibly "maps") to the
> list of other objects needing good contrast

Working Group Resolution (LC-2949):
We have modified the final paragraph of this section to read:

Although this Success Criterion only applies to text, similar issues occur
for content presented in charts, graphs, diagrams, and other non-text-based
information. Content presented in this manner also needs to have good
contrast to ensure that more users can access the information.
