Hi Alastair, Erich, and all,

+1

Good to know that we 3 are in agreement. If the graphic conveys
something, then understanding that graphical content is part of the
task. Anyone not not interpret it that way? Do we need to be more
explicit in the definition?

We already say "If a graphic is needed to understand the content or
functionality of the webpage then it should be perceivable for people
with low vision or other impairments" in the SC description. We could
reiterate that sentiment again in a future Understanding SC Doc when
we get to that point.

Thank you.

Kindest Regards,
Laura
