Not a problem

none of these terms are used in any SC

G



Accessibility Supports  NOT REFERENCED FROM ANY SC --  only used in the conformance section .  So you don't need to address it. 

Conformance is also only used in conformance section 
	the word does appear in a NOTE on 4 SC  (but these are only forward references -- that point out that these SC are treated specially in the conformance section. 
2.3.1 Three Flashes or Below Threshold
2.2.2 Pause, Stop, Hide:
2.1.2 No Keyboard Trap:
1.4.2 Audio Control: 

conforming alternate version   NOT REFERENCED FROM ANY SC --  only used in the conformance section . 

satisfies a success criterion    NOT REFERENCED FROM ANY SC --  only used in the conformance section .   

technology    NOT REFERENCED FROM ANY SC --  only used in the conformance section .   (the word Assistive technology is used several times - but we defined that)
