Hi Tim,

 

For example:   HPR supports scripting.   (HPR is an AT shell over IE. ) 

 

 

This is something we will have to discuss carefully in the Understanding
WCAG 2.0 section

What does it specifically mean for an --assistive technology-- to "support"
a 
--technology-- in the proposed definition (versus "non-support" of a
--technology--)?
In a set of technologies, all different, what is the objective criterion for
"support"
among those technologies? 

Thanks and best wishes

Propose we change this from

 

programmatically determined

recognized by user agents, including assistive technologies, that support
the technologies in the chosen baseline

 

to 

programmatically determined

recognized by assistive technologies that support the technologies in the
chosen baseline

 


Rationale  

 

1) All Web content is recognized by user agents or it wouldn t be web
content.

2) We don't mean recognized ONLY buy user agents that are not AT

3) therefore we mean that it must be recognized by AT

 

So we should just say that. 

 

Yes?  No?
