CFC - Proposed definition for 'Programatic Notification'

Call For Consensus — ends Friday October 6th at 1:00pm Boston time.

The Working Group has a new proposed definition of "Programmatic 
Notification" as found in the Change of Content SC.

The DFN text is:

Programmatic notification.

Notification set by the content which can be announced to the user 
without virtual or actual focus, using methods that are supported by 
user agents, including assistive technologies.

Example: a screen reader announces to a user that their shopping cart 
has been updated after they select an item for purchase.

And can be viewed here: 

This was discussed on todays call:

This definition was previously missing from WCAG 2.1 and the proposal is 
to add it.

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.
