A.5.1 Proposal

A.5.1 Ensure changes to the display settings of editing views do not affect the content being edited."

Rationale:

Authors may require settings to render and control the content during editing that differ from the presentation defined for the published content (e.g. providing a high contrast setting to edit content that is not intended to be high contrast)

Success Criteria:

Need to harmonize display preferences with presentation settings

Reword of Success Criteria

The author must be able to configure the display settings of editing views without affecting the Web content being edited.

Techniques:

Allowing the author to specify a preferred style sheet that will override the "published" style of the document in the editing view.

B.2.7

[action 1] Moving checkpoint B.2.7 to Section B.3 (I think it fits under "integration") and rewording it as: "Document features of the tool that support the production of accessible content."

[action 2] Changing the success criterion to specifically reference the features related to section B.2, for example: SC 1. 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 must be documented in the help system. (note the wording parallels A.3.3)

[action 3] Moving B.2.8 to Section B.3 (I think it fits under "promoting") and rewording it as: "Ensure that any authoring practices demonstrated in *repair instructions* or documentation are accessible" (note that repair instructions, a term used in B.2.3, is separated from help system-type documentation.

[action 4] Reword B.3.2 and its success criteria to follow the new pattern in [actions 1 and 2]: "Ensure that features of the tool that support the production of accessible content are always clearly available to the author."

[action 5] Reword B.3.4 and it's success criteria to follow the new pattern in [actions 1 and 2]: "Ensure that features of the tool that support the production of accessible content are configurable."

Accessibility options must be turned on by default, but you may opt out. If you do opt out, you are warned of the consequences, and you are always allowed to opt-in. Opt-in is always available. (Rough sentence)

AI: All, revisit and determine if the proposal is a good one.

Wrap Up:

Agreed to go in a random order, to ensure equal attention and quality of replies. A.4.1. for BF. B.2.6. and B.2.7

AI: GP B.1.3

AI: JR TBA...
