Just to be clear, when you say “zoom” do you mean zoom technology or any method of enlarging the screen view (e.g. Ctrl +).?

If you only check with one particular assistive tool for Zooming then the page may still not comply. It is important to check with keyboard only commands when testing for compliance. If the can be enlarged in a legible form using the keyboard then it passes. Refer to 2.1.

either is sufficient  

look at “how to meet”  and “understanding”  documents for that SC

  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.
