Hi Everyone,

I work for a company that provides Quality Assurance and I have started a
side project to outline the Accessibility Standards A-AAA which we should
provide when delivering QA for our clients (as this is currently known by
our consultants and not documented). My hope was to outline the main
standards for all consultants in the company so that we can provide the
best and consistent Accessibility testing for our clients.

We develop our own websites and Test Management Tools in house and I
believe that if we are providing Accessibility testing to clients, we
should also have products which are accessibility friendly. I am trying to
outline some standards which should be used by our Developers for our Test
Management Tools  - as we have Web, Desktop and Sharepoint versions - but
our tools are for use by Testers and not the general public.

I wanted to get a few opinions as to if a testing tool would need to be
Accessible or would this be unnecessary work? I have checked w3.org/WAI to
see if there are any guidelines for this but only web content, user agents
and Authoring Tools seem to have been covered. Any feedback on this subject
would be appreciated.

Thank you.
