Resolving Issue 154

This comment is suggesting that the concept  of Popup interference (in FPWD: might be best combined with 3.1.2 On Focus (

I think that we should respond to Scott as follows:

Thank you for your comments.

This is in response to your comment on the initial draft of WCAG 2.1 related to the Popup Interference success criteria that was proposed. The intent of this SC is to ensure that adjacent content and the new content itself is accessible, whereas the intent of 3.1.2 is related to not unexpectedly changing the user’s context. As a result the group has kept these separate, and we hope that the latest version (now called “content on hover or focus” helps make this more clear.

How’s that sound?
