Hi all,

The survey question about B.2.2.8 got me thinking about the SC and those 
that surround it. I think it might make sense to:

Combine: "B.2.2.6 View Status" AND "B.2.2.7 Save Status for Repair" 
which are already both AA.

Combine: "B.2.2.8 Metadata for Discovery" AND "B.2.2.9 Metadata for 
Repair" - they are currently AA and AAA but both point to EARL as 
potential implementations.

=====
PROPOSED NEW WORDING:

B.2.2.6 Human-Readable Results: A list of *web content accessibility 
problems* detected during *checking* can be viewed and saved by the 
*author(s)*. (Level AA)
Note: In addition to the results of *automated* or *semi-automated 
checking*, the *authoring tool* may include *manual checking* results, 
if these are collected from the *author(s)*.

B.2.2.7 Machine-Readable Results: *Checking* results can be saved in a 
machine-readable format. (Level AAA)
Note: In addition to the results of *automated* or *semi-automated 
checking*, the *authoring tool* may include *manual checking* results, 
if these are collected from the *author(s)*.

=====
CURRENT WORDING:

B.2.2.6 View Status: If the authoring tool records web content 
accessibility problems found during checking, then a list of any 
problems is available to the author(s) prior to the end of the authoring 
session. (Level AA)

B.2.2.7 Save Status for Repair: If repair assistance is not provided 
during checking, then the author(s) have the option to save a list of 
web content accessibility problems to facilitate later repair. (Level AA)

B.2.2.8 Metadata for Discovery: If the authoring tool records the 
accessibility status of  web content, then the author(s) have the option 
to associate this status with the  content as metadata to facilitate 
resource discovery by end users. (Level AA)

B.2.2.9 Metadata for Repair: If repair assistance is not provided during 
checking, then the author(s) have the option to save a metadata listing 
of the web content accessibility problems to facilitate interoperability 
with external repair tools. (Level AAA)

Cheers,
Jan
