WCAG 2.1 has officially been released so I'd like to try to support it as much as I can.
I'm having difficulty understanding guideline 1.3.6 (Identify Purpose). https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/Understanding/identify-purpose.html
These are the examples it gives on how to pass this criterion:
- A website uses ARIA landmarks to identify the regions of the page,
and users can hide areas that are not the 'main'.
- The links in the navigation of a website are marked-up so that users can add their own icons.
- Icons on a website are marked-up so that the user can substitute their own icon set into the page.
I'm fine with the first point. That basically means correctly using the new HTML5 elements
The other two points (that are completely unrelated to the first point) I've got no idea on how to comply with those. I don't think the markup for such a thing even exists at the moment.
Does anyone know how to comply with points 2 and 3?
(Not using any icons on your site doesn't count as an answer).
