Hi Andrew,

Yes, we will need to review and update this list. One of the ideas is to
make it sortable in order to provide different "views" according to the
users (for example, visual designer vs code developer etc).

Right now it is still unclear what ERT will contribute but I hope to
start work on it real soon. As discussed before, let's try to make the
"selecting tools" doc a stand-alone resource for now and later link the
sections to the "existing tools" list.

Any reactions to that?

Regards,
  Shadi

Hi Pasquale,

I like your suggestion of breaking the ERT tools list
(http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/existingtools.html#Evaluation,) into
sub-categories. I've always thought we should give more guidance to
readers
of that document. Shadi, is this something for the ERT working group to
consider rather than EO?

Andrew

Hi all,

some comments about the document
[Draft] Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools
at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools.html


I find all the text very clear and in a plain language.
I only find difficult to understand the word "Crawling".

I really like 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."
I think that it's right to stress this opportunity.

Always respecting the important rule "WAI does not endorse or promote
any
single tool or vendor.", in this case, for better clarifies the
different
types of tools, what about to mention 2 or 3 examples of semi-automated
and
manual tools?
Or, in alternative, to link to "Evaluation, Repair, and Transformation
Tools
for Web Content Accessibility" document at
http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/existingtools.html#Evaluation,
where it's possible to make the sub-categories to the list (not only
"General", "Focused", "Services") and to specify the tools that are
semi-automated and the tools that are manual.

Talk to you all friday (if my health will allow me!)

Regards
Ciao

Pasquale
