How Does Guideline 3.1.1 Affect Accessibility?

Hi,
Guideline 3.1.1: The default human language of each Web page can be programmatically determined.                                                                    (Level A).

Since this is level (a), and I'm an English-only speaker, I'm asking this question. If we have pages in another language, I'm guessing that someone who uses speech would have difficulty using those pages. Is that correct? Or are there also other accessibility considerations? Thanks for your enlightenment.

Jim
