Item Number: glossary
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The definition for assistive technology is difficult to understand because it gives the restrictive before the general meaning; also, it may be too restrictive, in describing legacy assistive technologies (for instance, some screen readers now are creating their own DOM separate from the mainstream browser).

Proposed Change:
EOWG recommends eliminating part (1) of the definition. (Note: We think that this would work *because* your definition of user agent is broad enough to already cover some of the functions of some assistive technologies.)
