Responder Proposed 3.2.2 Back Button3.2.2
Jan Richards Agree with the proposal
Jim Allan Suggest the following changes to the proposal need something about "except where prevented by the author/application for financial or other types of transactions"
Greg Lowney Neutral, will accept consensus of the group I could live with it, but I'd prefer if it covered navigation by entering a URI (e.g. typing into the address bar) and choosing from the navigation history (which might or might not be considered a hyperlink).

We could keep the proposed wording, or use something like one of these:

3.2.2 Back Button: The user can reverse recognized navigation actions caused by hyperlinks or address entry (e.g. via a back button or equivalent). (Level AA)

3.2.2 Back Button: The user can reverse recognized navigation between web addresses [or "URIs", or "web resources"?] (e.g. standard "back button" functionality). (Level AA).

The Intent should recommend multi-level undo for navigation, rather than just single-level. Also, does the current wording imply strongly enough that state should be restored to the amount feasible for the page?
Kimberly Patch Agree with the proposal
Kelly Ford Agree with the proposal
