I think we need to move H33 technique to advisory. The link text and title
compete for the AccName and so the title text is not read...  There is an
option not on by default to crawl the DOM and select the title attribute,
but both cannot be selected and it is a heuristic hack given that the
accessibility API doesn’t get this... there are extensive user agent notes
on the techniques, about where it doesn’t work, and none of this has been
fixed in the 5 years since we published the technique.

Providing a supplemental description of the purpose of a link using one of
the following techniques:

*	 <http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20130905/H33> H33:
Supplementing link text with the title attribute (HTML)

I’ve completed my action item...

 

Possible impacts on 

*	F2: Failure of Success Criterion 1.3.1 due to using changes in text
presentation to convey information without using the appropriate markup or
text. 

Role of heading would pass? Should discuss...

*	F3: Failure of Success Criterion 1.1.1 due to using CSS to include
images that convey important information 

Alternate text via labelled by or aria-label could provide an alternative?
This relates with F65 although Marco says should be treated separately from
f65 to which I agree… we could allow it and still not change f65, but it
muddies the waters? Should discuss...

And F3

Just a reminder that we are hoping to get an expedited review of the
failures. The failures are at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/failures.html
and the place to add your comments is
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Techniques/Failures. 

 

This doesn’t need to be an enormous task – you don’t need to SOLVE the
problems, just identify them.  You can see my comments on the wiki page for
reference.

 

If you will not be able to review your 20 before the next WCAG call, please
let me know as soon as you can.

 

Thanks,

AWK
