At the F2F it was decided that AUWG should take another look at removing 
"standard" accessibility practices for desktop software from the 
detailed requirements and instead focusing on accessibility requirements 
that are more authoring tool-specific. Assuming this continues to be our 
approach here's one way Part A might be organized:


PRINCIPLE A.1: Applicable accessibility standards must be followed

Guideline A.1.1 [For the authoring tool user interface] Ensure that 
Web-based functionality is accessible

Guideline A.1.2 [For the authoring tool user interface] Ensure that 
non-Web-based functionality is accessible

---
PRINCIPLE A.2: Editable content renderings must be enhanced for 
accessibility

Guideline A.2.1 [For the authoring tool user interface] Enable authors 
to independently configure their displays.

Guideline A.2.2 [For the authoring tool user interface] Provide access 
to alternative equivalents in the content being edited

Guideline A.2.3 [For the authoring tool user interface] Provide access 
to editable presentation

Guideline A.2.4 [For the authoring tool user interface] Help authors 
avoid flashing content that could cause seizures

Guideline A.3.5 [For the authoring tool user interface] Ensure that 
previews are as accessible as existing user agents

---
PRINCIPLE A.3: The accessibility of operating the authoring tool must be 
enhanced

Guideline A.3.1 [For the authoring tool user interface] Enhance keyboard 
access to authoring features

Guideline A.3.2 [For the authoring tool user interface] Enable 
time-independent authoring

Guideline A.3.3 [For the authoring tool user interface] Enhance 
navigation and editing via content structure

Guideline A.3.4 [For the authoring tool user interface] Provide text search

Guideline A.3.5 [For the authoring tool user interface] Enable 
management of preference settings

Guideline A.3.6 [For the authoring tool user interface] Help authors 
avoid and correct authoring mistakes

Guideline A.3.7 [For the authoring tool user interface] Document the 
accessibility features of the authoring tool
