Hello Shadi and all, 

While reading the "selecting tools" document, I have difficulties understanding following content: 

1. In "semi-automated Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools" in the third item of the list: "precision": 
"Every evaluation tool is prone to claiming false results such as not detecting
potential accessibility barriers, or wrongly claiming that Web content does not conform to certain checkpoints." This sentence insnot clear to me. 

2. When I read the following item of the list, I also cannot imagine what that mean:
"Crawling: How well does the evaluation tool traverse the entire target content?".

3. In "manual evaluation tools" I have difficulties understanding the sentence: "
Manual Web accessibility evaluation tools help educate Web developers in understanding the impact and context of the accessibility barriers which leads to long term resolution of mistakes."

4. "3. Evaluating the Accessibility Features of Web Sites" is very clear and helpful.

>According to this weeks agenda, we will be discussing this new version of the draft in our meeting. Please feel free to also send comments to the list, I'd be especially interested in knowing how well this version clarifies the different types of tools and which issues it still needs to address.
>Looking forward to a fruitful discussion.
