Dear EOWG Participants,

EOWG previously approved Shadi's updates to the Accessibility Principles
page for WCAG 2.1 [1]. Based on input from the Low Vision Task Force, we
have a change for you to review. In this section:

https://deploy-preview-6--wai-accessibility-principles.netlify.com/fundamentals/accessibility-principles/#distinguishable



Previously Approved Was:
* Text is resizable up to 200% without losing information, using a standard
browser
* Text spacing can be adjusted without losing information, and reflows on
small screens

Changed to:
* When users resize text up to 400% or change text spacing, no information
is lost
* Text reflows in small windows or when users make the text larger

*To respond, please reply only to <wai-eo-editors@w3.org
<wai-eo-editors@w3.org>> with +1 and/or other comments.*

We hope to publish this on Wednesday to announce it for GAAD on Thursday.

Thanks!
~ Sharron, Brent, Shawn
