You don't need eyesight to have vision.

HI Laura,

> I wonder if it would apply it to all of the graphical examples? [2].

My interpretation has been that this would include understanding content:
“information the user may need to complete any action or task including an
offline task.”

If the graphic is to convey something, then understanding that content is
part of the task.

If others don’t read it that way, then we might need something like:
Important information: information the user may need to understand the
content or complete an action or task…

In which case it might be best to suggest that update to COGA rather than
have a different definition of the same concept.

Cheers,

-Alastair
