Hey All,

I was discussing resize text 1.4.4 success criteria with my colleague and
we had a couple of disagreements for the expectation of this criteria.

Could someone clarify the expectations on this, please?

So my understanding was 1.4.4 success criteria considered as "Pass" when
both Zoom and Resizing Text up to 200% scale (  Zoom Text only) looks good
and readable with no content cut off or overlapping issue.

However as per my colleague Zoom is the only requirement to satisfy this
criterion and we should not worry scaling of 200% (text only feature).

What are the correct requirements to pass WCAG 2.0 1.4.4? Appreciate your
clarification and suggestions.
