Sorry, that went off before I expected…

What I mean is a displayed line of text, so this is like it is in CSS also. The way that you fail is if the line of text extends beyond the boundary – if a page wraps a sentence with 1000 words in it so that it goes from 1 line (fails) to 50 lines the user will need to scroll to read the sentence, but not for each line of that sentence.

hmmm

ok as long as you define a line of text.   Else I might look at a line of word wrapped text — and think you mean the whole line including the wrapped part — which indeed might require scrolling if the line is long enough and the screen small.

not sure how to clear up that ambiguity but other wiser seems to work.   maybe just add single?

Content can be resized to 400% without loss of content or functionality, and in a way that does not require the user to scroll to read a single line of text, with the exception of any part of the content where fixed spatial layout is essential to the information being conveyed.

To adjust the text, I’d suggest:
“Content can be resized to 400% without loss of content or functionality, and without requiring scrolling in the direction of text except for parts of the content where fixed spatial layout is necessary to use or meaning.”

Cribbing from 1.4.8, I think that we can keep it simple and say "in a way that does not require the user to scroll to read a line of text"

How about:
