RE: WCAG 2.1 Guideline Suggested Changes

Personally: I think both are improvements, overall I prefer the simpler approach to 2.5-8 (i.e. just having 2.5).

There’s a lot of conceptual overlap between speech input, input methods, and device settings. For me the simpler grouping matters more than where (new) individual SCs go.



From: Michael Gower

Changes from existing editor's draft:

  *   rename the existing Pointer Accessible guideline to Input Methods
     *   remove the word "pointer" from the existing short description of the guideline to now read: "Make it easier for users to operate functionality."
  *   remove Additional Sensor Inputs (put Motion Actuation under Input Methods)
  *   move Orientation to Adaptable -- where it fits well: "Create content that can be presented in different ways (for example simpler layout) without losing information or structure."
  *   move Character Key Shortcuts to Keyboard Accessible. It is where it fits practically and linguistically; speech operability rides on top of the keyboard API.
  *   move Label in Name to Compatible, where it fits well with the second Intention ("exposing information in the content in standard ways that assistive technologies can recognize and interact with.")
