This could be any focusable element, it doesn't have to be a heading etc.
15:41:16 [Joshue]
Firstly, is this something that we should take up anyway.
15:42:26 [Joshue]
Marco: The focus for AT should follow the visual focus, so yes.
15:42:45 [Joshue]
MC: Maybe this should be first viewbable or displayable element.
15:47:45 [Joshue]
MC: the issue is we need to find a non media dependent way of achieving focus etc.
15:48:07 [Joshue]
RESOLUTION: Reword spec tech with media independent verbiage
