Ø  that PDF delivered via FTP is in scope...

This is something the group doesn’t seem to agree on.  I’d like to get consensus on this as well.  I was told by members of the working group who were involved during WCAG 2.0’s creation that it was not covered.

Subject: Re: Is Java Web Start covered by WCAG?

Clarification / correction / addition:
...If Web Start is used to transport and then launch a User Interface-based application or content​, I'd argue that yes, it is in scope in the same way that PDF delivered via FTP is in scope...

https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/#webpagedef


Or something else?

Thanks.

Kindest Regards,
Laura
