Re: CFC - Changing Accessible Name in Change of Content


I would accept it with one amendment

This is a CFC, and the question at this point is whether you can live with it- yes or no, no amendments. People have already weighed in on the CFC and it is what it is. If it fails, we can revisit it with changes and re-CFC it, but the votes of the WG members need to be on the CFC as it is.

Call For Consensus — ends Tuesday October 3rd at 10:30am Boston time.

The Working Group has discussed the issue of syncing the concept of “accessible name” in the Change of Content SC with the “name” concept used in WCAG 2.0’s 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value).<>

The specific changes are detailed in this pull request:<>

If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.
