Do we need to include 


" control the audio volume (including 0) which is ... "          ?   


Kind of awkward but.  


I think maybe we don't need to because I've never seen anything that claimed
to have volume control that you can't set to zero.  I'm sure there is one
but I THINK we could just put this in HTM. 


Other people's thoughts?

Subject: Audio background amendment

A follow up to one of my comments on the Survey that was tabled.


I think the language of 1.4.2 needs an adjustment. Or it needs to be fixed
in the intent.


<current SC 1.4.2>or a mechanism is available to control audio volume which
...</current SC 1.4.2>

An example. Some authors might say the user has "control" if they can only
adjust the volume a bit... which would defeat the purpose of the SC and let
them have distracting background. Let's add to the Intent... "Control means
that the volume can be reduced to zero DB"
