Test 0001 Author: Jeanne Spellman

Test 0001 Steps:

authoring tool includes settings that affect how the user interface or 
the content being edited is perceived by the author. If these settings 
exist, then document them. If not, then select SKIP.

For each set of preferences or control settings: Does the preference or 
preference group include a control to allow the settings to be saved? If 
so, select PASS.

Make a change to a setting, then logout or end the authoring session.

Return back to the content being edited and see if the setting change 
has persisted. If the setting change has persisted then select PASS. If 
the settings remain at the default or the change that you made in step 
2.2 is no longer in effect, then select FAIL.



A.3.6.3 Apply Platform Settings:

The authoring tool respects changes in platform display and control 
settings, unless authors select more specific display and control 
settings using the authoring tool. (Level AA)

Test 0001 Assertion: If the user makes a change to the platform display 
or control settings, then those changes appear in the authoring tool. If 
the user makes a change to the platform display or control settings and 
that change does NOT appear in the authoring tool, then the authoring 
tool has more specific display and control settings inside the authoring 
tool.
