RE: WCAG 2.2 status update

Hi everyone,

This is hopefully the final status update for the WCAG 2.2 as pre-approved drafts, after this we’ll be dealing with CFCs and github comments.

We have two which appear to be pretty much ready but we need approval, up on Tuesday:

  *   Touch target spacing: We updated that in the meeting on Wednesday, but the Mobile TF suggested some updates:

  *   Visual Indicators (to progress): Has been updated, re-review needed:<>

We have a few which are approved from an SC point of view, pending updates to the understanding/technique documents:

  *   Hidden controls: Approved (in meeting) SC:

New technique to approve.
  *   Find help: Approved (in meeting) the SC:

Needs a fleshed out technique.
  *   Fixed Reference Points: Approved (in meeting) the SC:

Has an updated technique.
  *   Error correction (Processes): Approved (in meeting) the SC:

Needs a fleshed out technique.
Please do review the above and comment in the documents if you have editorial suggestions.

We are creating pull requests prior to CFC for:

  *   Information in steps
Note – we approved a definition for “steps” that will be applied to this SC as well.
  *   Dragging
SCs that hit problems:

  *   Icon Description: Was reviewed on the 7th Jan:

There does not seem to be a good way of achieving this on touch-screen devices, in a way that doesn’t make the interaction worse in some circumstances.
  *   Visible labels & Orientation: were thought to be possible to cover with understanding/technique updates.
  *   Custom interactions: It is really difficult to define what a ‘custom interaction’ actually is. A lot of the problematic ones are ‘standard interactions’ (e.g. swipe gesture) but with an unexpected result. This is deferred, more research needed.

SCs approved:

  *   Accessible authentication: CFCed and ready to merge:

  *   Focus visible (enhanced): Part of FPWD.
Kind regards,
