I'd lax the "two state" conditions, since there are things like 3state check boxes, which one could think of as checkable as well.

Best regards,

I'm tweaking it again.  Please review...

Indicates that an object is checkable. The standard checkable objects are check boxes, radio buttons, check box menu items, radio menu items, and toggle buttons.  Since assistive technology will determine that these objects are checkable via the object's role the checkable state is not required.  However, this state is necessary in those cases where an object has a role which is not one of the previously mentioned roles but does have the behavior of having two states.  An example is a table cell which indicates whether or not an email has an attachment, whether or not an mail is considered spam, and whether or not an email has been read.
