Hello !!
There are some target audiences defined in the current EARL document
scenarios. One of them is a web accessibility consultant who uses
evaluation tools and after comparing the results obtained from these
elaborates a complete accessibility report for the client.
One use case that we have thought about is the use of EARL by a tool to
gather results from different evaluations tools and elaborate a complete
accessibility report. So this use case is the automatic version of the
currently defined in the document.
This automatic version has as its target audience "a tool developer who
wants to make use of EARL results" as Shadi has said.
But perhaps, it is useful to keep the manual version too since an
accessibility consultant might want to get different EARL reports
compare them and elaborate a complete report.
I think this user only needs to understand and interpret the different
contained in the EARL result.
What do you think about it?
