	What's New in WCAG 2.2 Working Draft

We have addressed comments on the previous draft. Updates since the previous Working Draft include:
* Accessible authentication: Incorporates concepts of ‘steps’ to account for multi-factor authentication, and explicitly allows for ‘mechanisms’ like password managers.
* Dragging movement: A very minor wording update.
* Consistent help: Renamed from “Findable help”, and follows the ‘consistent navigation’ criterion more closely.
* Page Break Navigation: Renamed, the criterion text is reduced to focus on content which already implements programmatic page break locators.
* Focus appearance (minimum): Restructured the criterion text, whilst keeping the requirement essentially the same.
* Focus appearance (enhanced): Aligned with the minimum version.
* Visible control: Renamed (from Hidden controls), added several exceptions.
* Target size (minimum): Renamed (from Pointer target Spacing), reduced the core size requirement to 24px, and simplified the criterion text.
* Redundant entry: Removed the ‘steps in a process’ aspect, added a within-session scope, and added several exceptions.

If you have any comments, please open a new issue for each comment in the WCAG GitHub repository:
