Re: no mouse activity

It sounds like a subtle and deadly mix of 2.1.1 and 2.2.1 ...

That is, if the required possiblity of extending the time out was made
available, it would pass 2.2.1 ... since the time out is fixed wholly on
the mouse though, and the keyboard is not registering as far as "activity"
is concerned, then ... 2.1.1, keyboard navigation.

Maybe even 2.1.2 "no keyboard trap" by a poetic stretch of the imagination
: we are in the page but no one can hear us.

...I'll probably be shot down on this one, seem to be batting about 30%
these days on successful WCAG commentary. We live and learn ....

It is an interesting example you give, thank you.
