Quick access to LC-2893
There are 2 comments (sorted by their types, and the section they are about).
If a color of link text is changed when a mouse cursor is hovering over a link (by using CSS, a:hover), does the changed color also need to have a sufficient contrast ratio to meet SC 1.4.3 and/or 1.4.6?
I just want to make sure thatã€€the changed color of link text is also required to have a sufficient contrast (or not).
Summary of Issue: Add "Techniques for Specific Technologies"
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In WAI announcements and blogs (e.g., http://www.w3.org/blog/2012/01/wcag-techniques-learn-more/) over the last couple of years, we've been clarifying saying this (the proposed change), and it really belongs in the doc itself.
In Understanding Techniques for WCAG Success Criteria <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2014/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20140107/complete-diff.html#understanding-techniques> add a new section, right under the Techniques are Informative section <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2014/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20140107/complete-diff.html#ut-understanding-techniques-informative-head>:
<h3>Techniques for Specific Technologies
Publication of techniques for a specific technology does not imply that the technology can be used in all cases to create accessible content that meets WCAG 2.0. Developers need to be aware of the limitations of specific technologies and ensure that they provide content in a way that is accessible to all potential users.
