Hi Andi, Allen,
This is a great list. I have just a few comments on some of the items,
which I am placing in-line for context.
> Proposed CFR1194.27
> (a) An encoding mechanism shall be provided to associate non-text elements
> with textual descriptions displayable by a user-agent.
We need to be clear on whether this applies to all non-text elements, or
only certain elements (or perhaps define "element"). For example, is it
necessary to be able to encode a text description for each and every
line that makes up spokes of a wheel graphic that is embedded within a
text document advertisement for bicycle wheels? Or only the group of
non-text elements that make up the graphic?
> (f) An encoding mechanism shall be provided to associated row and column
> headers with other table cells, displayable by a user-agent.
I think you mean "associate" here, vs. "associated".
Separate from those two points, should there be any statement about
keyboard navigation to content? Imagine for example the objects that
make up a slide presentation - the header, the body text, multiple
images in the body of the slide, etc.
