I agree with this change - this very much clarifies that this is
addressing *visual* color issues. As you mention, we do need
additional clarification that information conveyed with color alone
can also be made accessible to screen reader users. By adding a color
example under the Information and Relationships provision
("Information and relationships conveyed through presentation can be
programmatically determined or are available in text") or by
clarifying that 'presentation' includes the use of color, this would
be adequately addressed.
