ATAG 2.0 Editor's Draft - includes new proposals

From: Jan Richards <jan.richards@utoronto.ca>
Date: Wed, 21 Feb 2007 16:07:58 -0500
Message-ID: <45DCB4AE.2070301@utoronto.ca>
To: WAI-AUWG List <w3c-wai-au@w3.org>

Proposals were starting to build up on the list, so I've put them into 
an Editor's draft at:

http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2007/WD-ATAG20-20070221/WD-ATAG20-20070221.html

 From there we either approve them or roll back to the older wording in 
the Public WD.

(NOTE: Some changes listed below are NEW proposals not yet sent to the list)

The big changes included are:

1. Numbering changes - Checklist, glossary etc. moved to appendices 
(btw: the checklist and comparison are broken links in this draft) and 
numbering scheme simplified.

2. Definition of Authoring Tool changed as a reviewer suggested. BTW: 
What do people think of "Dialog-level" editing instead of "Indirect" 
editing?

3. Changes to relationship with WCAG section

4. Major re-org. of the Conformance section
  - removed relative priority
  - added proposed Partial Conformance (Remember this has not been approved)
  - reworked the Benchmark section
  - removing graphic
  - tried to satisfy all of the commenters' concerns

5. Moved A.0.1 "For the authoring tool user interface, ensure that 
Web-based functionality conforms to WCAG" into a re-named guideline 
"A.4: Authoring tool must facilitate access by assistive technologies"

6. Changed "conforms to WCAG" to "is accessible" in checkpoint wording 
criteria that are normative

7. Decomposed Relative priority -> 3 priority levels in checkpoints.

8. Simplified B.2.1 and B.2.2 to match B.2.3:
- B.2.1 Prompt authors to create accessible content
- B.2.2 Assist authors in checking for accessibility problems
- B.2.3 Assist authors in repairing accessibility problems

9. Some changes to terms in the glossary...most notably reworking 
"authoring tool user interface" - including removing the terminally 
confusing graphic.



There's lots here, but it's highlighted in the doc so please let me know 
what you think.


Cheers,
Jan
