Dear Eval TF,

Unfortunately we put this Eval TF mailing list instead of the WCAG-EM 
commenting list [1] in the draft which is why comments are now landing 
here. Apologies for this increased noise on the list due to oversight.

It covers different situations, including self-assessment and third-party evaluation. It is independent of particular evaluation tools, web browsers, and assistive technologies.

We are particularly looking for feedback on the applicability of this methodology in practice and for input on refining and expanding the guidance provided. Specific questions are indicated with "Review Note" in the draft.
