Keyboard (keyboard emulator, keyboard     interface)

The standard set of letters and command keys     that allow a user to control the computer. Assistive     technologies have traditionally relied on the
keyboard     interface as a universal, or modality independent interface.     Note that in this document references to keyboard, keyboard     emulator
and keyboard interface include the keyboard's role as     a modality independent interface (see Modality...

scribe: Independence Pri

nciple).

<Greg> We changed the title     of "2.6.1 List event handlers: The user can call up a list of     input device event handlers explicitly associated with
the     keyboard focus element, and activate any one or more of the     event handlers. (Level A)" to reflect that we combined former     2.6.1 and 2.6.2.
New title is "Access to event handlers".

Keyboard (keyboard emulator, keyboard     interface)

The letter, symbol and command keys that allow     a user to control the computing device. Assistive technologies     have traditionally relied on the keyboard
interface as a     universal, or modality independent interface. Note that in this     document references to keyboard, keyboard emulator and keyboard
    interface include the keyboard's role as a modality independent     interface (see Modality Independence Pr

in

ciple).

The letter, symbol and command keys or key     indicators that allow a user to control a computing device.     Assistive technologies have traditionally
relied on the     keyboard interface as a universal, or modality independent     interface. Note that in this document references to keyboard,     keyboard
emulator and keyboard interface include the keyboard's     role as a modality independent interface (see...

scribe: Modality Independence     Principle)

<Greg> For comparison, here     is the definition from the latest 508/255 ANPRM: Keyboard. A     set of systematically arranged alphanumeric keys or a control
    that generates alphanumeric input by which a machine or device     is operated. A keyboard includes tactilely discernible keys     used in conjunction
with the alphanumeric keys if their     function maps to keys on the keyboard interfaces.

<Greg> ATAG has definitions     for keyboard interface and keyboard trap, but not for     keyboard.

<Greg> Where you now says     "Note that in this document references to keyboard, keyboard     emulator and keyboard interface include the keyboard's role
as     a modality independent interface"

<Greg> how about something     like

<Greg> "Note that in this     document references to keyboard include keyboard emulators and     keyboard interfaces that make use of the keyboard's role
as a     modality independent interface..."

<Greg> I'd also add "Keyboard     emulators and interfaces may be used on devices which do not     have a physical keyboard."

<Greg> "Keyboard emulators     and interfaces may be used on devices which do not have a     physical keyboard, such as mobile devices based on touchscreen
    input."

<jeanne> The letter, symbol     and command keys or key indicators that allow a user to control     a computing device. Assistive technologies have traditionally
    relied on the keyboard interface as a universal, or modality     independent interface. Keyboard emulators and interfaces may be     used on devices
which do not have a physical keyboard, such as     mobile devices based on touchscreen input. In this document     references

<jeanne> to keyboard include     keyboard emulators and keyboard interfaces that make use of the     keyboard's role as a modality independent interface
(see     Modality Independence Principle)

<kford> Note, we reviews SC     from 2.1 to 2.6.

<kford> We identified those     with open actions or indicated as no we do not agree at     TPAC.

<kford> We marked several     done if they appeared to be complete based on no actions or not     indicated as no.
