Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

WAI invites you to comment on the First Public Working Draft of:
	Developers' Guide to Features of Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools

The document describes features that web authoring tools and quality 
assurance tools can incorporate to support web accessibility evaluation. 
It is useful for tool developers to get introductory guidance on these 
features, and is useful for people who want to compare tools, for 
example, during procurement. The document is intended to promote 
awareness of accessibility evaluation tool features and to encourage 
tool developers to include relevant features so that tools better 
support WCAG 2.0 conformance evaluation.

This publication provides a comprehensive first draft. We particularly seek:
* suggestions for additional features to be covered, and
* feedback on the general format and approach of the document.

Please send comments to the publicly-archived e-mail list:
	*by 15 August 2014*, or let us know right away if you might need 
additional time for review

This document is developed by the Evaluation and Repair Tools Working 
Group (ERT WG).
This work is developed with support of the EC-funded WAI-ACT Project

It is part of W3C WAI activities on web accessibility evaluation and 
testing introduced at: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/2011/eval/>

The first URI above goes to the latest version of the document. The
