Here's one: 1.3.2 Meaningful Sequence (Level A)
The correct reading sequence must be programmatically determined.

Subject: [WebAIM] WCAG criterion failed when content can be read screen reader, when it shouldn't be?

Can anybody tell me what WCAG criterion would be failed if there was content that was readable to a screen reader that shouldn't be, for instance, if one dismisses a modal dialog, but it is still readable by the screen reader at the end of the page? Thanks.

Best,
Rob
