Here is 1194.22 f, as in Frank, mapping 1194.21 to iso 9241-171
Summary. I have already posted 8.6.4 in the context of another provision, so this should be a rehash.
(f) Textual information shall be provided through operating system functions for displaying text. The minimum information that shall be made available is text content, text input caret location, and text attributes.
ISO 8.6.4 Software shall provide assistive technology with information about individual user interface elements, using methods compatible with 8.6.3, except elements that only serve as an integral portion of a larger element, taking no input and conveying no information of their own. NOTE 1 User interface element information includes, but is not limited to: general states (such as existence, selection, focus, and position), attributes (such as size, colour, role and name), values (such as the text in a static or editable text field), states specific to particular classes of user interface elements (such as On/Off, depressed/released),and relationships between user interface elements (such as when one user interface element contains, names, describes, or affects another). This applies to on screen user interface elements and UI status values such as toggle keys.NOTE 2 User interface element information is typically available to users by inspection or interaction. Users with certain disabilities may not be able to see or otherwise detect this information without using assistive technologies.
