F76: Failure of Success Criterion 3.2.2 due to providing instruction material about the change of context by change of setting in a user interface element at a location that users may bypass

Failure examples:



  1. Find occurrence of change of context due to change of user interface setting

  2. Find instructional material that all users must review prior encountering of the change of context.
