SC 1.3.3 Question

for

Hi,
My interpretation of the below page is that the only way to ensure that 1.3.3 is satisfied is to have visible text labels that indicate what shapes mean. I have two questions about the content of the page. Which shapes are universally accepted? And is this interpretation too strict? One reason I ask this is that it is possible to have a universally accepted shape, and have text spoken by a screen reader that indicates the shape's meaning. Which people with learning disabilities would be impacted one way or other other?

Thanks.
