Hi Sylvie,

You could try to look up the corresponding WCAG 2.0 Success Criteria, 
and then read about them in the Understanding WCAG 2.0 document. Of 
course this is all still draft material and subject to change but it 
should be useful background for you (you just can't really point to it 
formally yet as long as it is in draft stage).
