Thanks John.  Another question might be are sufficient luminosity differences alone acceptable or will users require something additional.  For example, in particular users of high contrast OS settings may not see backgrounds at all and colors or differences in colors may not be available either – only attribute like bolding – but perhaps bolding alone isn’t sufficient either?  Sorry to run on – but I want to make sure we discuss this more thoroughly without just addressing one aspect and forgetting other user needs.  Perhaps this could be separate user need?

Hi Jon,



"Alone" is a great addition. The version below has only one new change from me: the addition of a comma after "meaning".



User Need: When differences in luminosity alone are used to communicate meaning, including active, selection, and focus states, the difference in luminosity is sufficient between different states.

John, perhaps it could add the word “alone” or something like that.  Feel free to change the wording on my behalf I am flexible.

Hi Jon,







I suggest that "or additional means other than luminosity are used to communicate meaning" is unnecessary; and contributes to making that long sentence confusing. I can provide more detail if you want.
