Responder Proposal to delete 1.1 and 1.2Comments 1.1 and 1.2
Jan Richards The proposal needs more discussion (see comments field) I don't see how 1.3 and 5.3 cover these. 1.1 and 1.2 are analagous to A.1.1 and A.1.2 in ATAG 2.0 which is intened to cover lots of general software accessibility items.

On the other hand, UUAG 2.0 has more requirements that might be considered "general software accessibility" than ATAG does, so the document as a whole might make 1.1 and 1.2 unnecessary. But that needs discussion.
Kimberly Patch Accept the proposal
Greg Lowney Recommend changes (see comments field) I agree that 1.1 and 1.2 in principle, but I think that somewhere we should clearly state that UA UI should comply with WCAG if implemented using a WCAG-compatible technology (which was the goal of 1.2). Perhaps in the Intent or Examples for 1.3.
Kelly Ford Accept the proposal

Responder Proposal for 3.1.3 Browse and RenderComments 3.1.3
Jan Richards Accept the proposal
Kimberly Patch Accept the proposal
Greg Lowney Recommend changes (see comments field) Just a very minor editorial suggestion: because the phrase "non-time-based media" is so cumbersome and foreign to many readers, it might help to put the meaningful examples in the main sentence and the technical term in the parentheses. For example reword Intent b from "There are times when a user cannot gain meaningful information from a non-time-based media element (images, charts, graphs, etc.)" to "There are times when a user cannot gain meaningful information from images, charts, graphs, etc. (non-time-based media element)." and similarly for Intent a.
