Hi all,

I know this is grossly late/overdue, however I appreciate the opportunity to share with you a few short comments on the working draft from our development team in Finland, attached.

As testing practitioners, they have concerns that multiple methods of testing may slow down their workflow.

*         The proposal fundamentally alters the way in which WCAG is tested
*         Testing is difficult to carry out efficiently
*         Conformance testing is difficult to carry out reliably and in a reproducible manner
*         WCAG 3.0 success levels are impractical

I appreciate any feedback to directly address these comments and provide any clarification.

Looking forward to your thoughts.

Best regards.
Jennifer
