On the call today we discussed some of the issues identified by Greg and I and identified some fixes. Please try to keep them in mind as you complete the survey (especially if you don't agree with the potential fix):

In this survey: https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35520/20130107/
A.2.1.1 Text Alternatives for Rendered Non-Text Content: If an editing-view renders non-text content, then any programmatically associated text alternatives for the non-text content can be programmatically determined. (Level A)
=> FIX: Add a new step at the top of the test:  0. If the media alternatives for the format are in a different (non-included) format, then select SKIP. 

In this survey: https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35520/20130107-2/
A.3.1.5 Customize Keyboard Access: If the authoring tool includes keyboard commands, then those keyboard commands can be customized. (Level AAA)
=> FIX: Replace the phrasing (which requires all keyboard commands to be customizable) with this:
1. If the authoring tool does not include keyboard commands, then select SKIP.
2. Examine the authoring tool for at least one mechanism whereby a keyboard command can be customized such that another keyboard command can accomplish the same action (e.g., some tools have utilities that present all available actions and then allow the author to set which keyboard command activates each).
3. If a mechanism is found, select PASS. Otherwise, select FAIL.
A.3.3.1 Static View Option: If the authoring tool contains editing-views that render visual time-based content, then those editing-views can be paused and can be set to not play automatically. (Level A)
=> FIX: Add: 7. Otherwise, select FAIL.

In this survey: https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35520/20130107-4/
A.4.1.2 Settings Change Confirmation: If the authoring tool provides mechanisms for changing authoring tool user interface settings, then those mechanisms can reverse the setting changes, or the authoring tool requires author confirmation to proceed. (Level A)
=> FIX:
1. Examine the authoring tool for mechanisms to change any preference settings within that authoring tool user interface. If there are none, then select SKIP.
2. For each mechanism for changing the preference settings:
  1. Note "values" of preference settings within the mechanism.
  2. Use the mechanisms to change the relevant preference settings, so that the "value" of those preference settings is different.
  3. If an OK button (or similar) is required to save the preferences, select the button.
  4. If the authoring tool prompts the user for confirmation to proceed, then go to the next mechanism for changing the preference settings.
  5. Attempt to "reverse" the change. If the original value can be set then go to the next mechanism for changing the preference settings.
  6. Otherwise, select FAIL.
3. Select PASS. (all of the settings must have met the requirement)
