Hi everyone,

On Monday's call I took an action to refine my proposal in:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2006JanMar/0047.html

Here it is:

----------

[action 1] Move checkpoint B.2.7 to Section B.3 (I think it fits under
"integration") and reword as follows:

"B.3.X: Document features of the tool that support the production of 
accessible content."

(the phrasing "features of the tool that support the production of 
accessible content" refers to the wording of "B.2: Support the 
production of accessible content")



[action 2] Change the B.3.X success criterion to specifically reference 
the features related to section B.2 (via a defined term "Accessible 
content support feature"):

In Glossary: Accessible content support feature: All features of the 
tool that play a role in satisfying the success criteria for checkpoints 
B.2.1, B.2.2, B.2.3, B.2.5, B.2.6 and B.2.9 (ed. will be B.2.7 if 
actions 1 and 3 are adopted).

SC 1. All *accessible content support features* must be documented in 
the help system.



[action 3] Move B.2.8 to Section B.3 (I think it fits under
"promoting") and reword as follows:

"B.3.Y: Ensure that any authoring practices demonstrated in *repair
instructions* and *documentation* are accessible"



[action 4] Reword B.3.2 and its success criteria to follow the new
pattern [in actions 1 and 2]:

"B.3.2: Ensure that features of the tool that support the production of
accessible content are always clearly available to the author."

[ed. SC1 moved to B.3.4]

"SC1: All *accessible content support features* must match or exceed the 
prominence of any corresponding features related to other classes of Web 
content problems (e.g. markup validity, program code syntax, spelling 
and grammar)."



[action 5] Reword B.3.4 and it's success criteria to follow the new
pattern [in actions 1 and 2] and to make match the discussion on the 3 
April call 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2006AprJun/0001.html).:

"B.3.4: Ensure that features of the tool that support the production of
accessible content are configurable."

SC1: All *accessible content support features* must be turned on by default.

SC2: If the author does turn off an *accessible content support 
feature*, then the authoring tool must inform the author that this may 
increase the risk of content accessibility problems.

SC3: If the author does turn off an *accessible content support 
feature*, then the author must always have the option to turn the 
feature back on again.

(ed. note I didn't put in an SC that the features had to have an off 
switch - but I didn't rule it out either)


[action 6] Renumber B.3: Move B.3.3 up so that B.3.2 and B.3.4 can be 
together.

------------

The resulting checkpoint list for sections B.2 and B.3 would be:

B.2: Support the author in the production of accessible content

B.2.1: Prompt and assist the author to create content that conforms to 
WCAG. [RP

B.2.2: Check for and inform the author of accessibility problems. [RP]

B.2.3: Assist authors in repairing accessibility problems. [RP]

B.2.4: Make it easy for authors to ensure that alternative equivalents
for non-text objects are accurate and fit the context.[P1]
(ed. this is proposed new wording from: 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-au/2006JanMar/0040.html)

B.2.5: Provide functionality for managing, editing, and reusing 
alternative equivalents. [P3]

B.2.6: Provide the author with a summary of accessibility status. [P3]

B.2.7: Provide a tutorial on the process of accessible authoring. [P3]


Guideline B.3: Promote and integrate accessibility solutions

B.3.1 Ensure that the most accessible option for an authoring task is 
given priority. [P2]

B.3.2 Ensure that sequential authoring processes integrate accessible 
authoring practices. [P2]

B.3.3 Ensure that features of the tool that support the production of
accessible content are always clearly available to the author. [P2]

B.3.4 Ensure that features of the tool that support the production of
accessible content are configurable. [P3]

B.3.5: Document features of the tool that support the production of 
accessible content. [P2]

B.3.6: Ensure that any authoring practices demonstrated in *repair
instructions* and *documentation* are accessible. [P3]
