Re: Mapping findings to WCAG

Hello all, Greetings!

I am running usability test pass on a web app and I have come across few
confusions while mapping issues to WCAG 2.0
Any WCAG Success Criteria associated with the following points?

1. When I focus to an edit field JAWS is not announcing the edit field
though it is focused.
2. In other edit field unable to read typed text in the edit field using
arrow keys.
3. The link text of some links is very long where I think user frustrates
listening to these long links. The information present in link text is also
available in the destination after following the links. Also for all these
links the starting phrase in the link text is given as "Opens new dialog".
I think this phrase has to be included as the last phrase in the link text.
Can I fail these two scenarios under WCAG 2.4.4

Need Clarification. Thank you.
