Dear WAI Interest Group,

The Accessibility Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has published:
	ATAG Report Tool

About ATAG: Authoring tools are software and services used to create web content – such as content management systems (CMS) and what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) HTML editors. W3C’s Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) addresses making the authoring tools themselves accessible and helping authors create more accessible web content. Learn more from:
	ATAG Overview

About the ATAG Report Tool: Project managers, procurers, and others often need to know how well potential authoring tools support accessibility. This new ATAG Report Tool helps authoring tool vendors and evaluators provide that information.

Future work: EOWG plans to set up a list where authoring tool vendors can submit their tool, and others can look up accessibility information about authoring tools. (A bit like the Evaluation Tools List at https://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tools/ )

Comments: We welcome comments on the ATAG Report Tool, for consideration for future updates. To comment, please open a new issue in the GitHub repository:
