Subject: WCAG2ICT... where's that "additional guidance" for PDF?

Hi all,

It has been asserted in multiple comments on the Section 508 refresh that the “additional information” found in WCAG2ICT “...provides appropriate standards to ensure that PDF documents are accessible…."

This surprised me, because I did not recall any such guidance being provided in that document back when it was developed, and I was paying attention at that time.

Is this is the same WCAG2ICT document that managed to collect a grand total of 24 messages in its public forum over almost 3 years?  Almost all of which were substantive and detailed (if highly critical) comments from myself, the CEO of callas software, Andi Snow-Weaver and Alex Li of Microsoft, Ken Salaets of ITI (!), and others?

None of these critiques were ever answered or addressed in the forum:

Can someone please clarify for me what, precisely, in WCAG2ICT helps ensure PDF documents are accessible? 

Thanks,

Duff.
