Implementation Status - Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 1.0

This page documents how some authoring tools satisfy the checkpoints of the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 [ATAG10]. The intention of this page is to establish that at least one deployed authoring tool satisfies each checkpoint; there may be other tools that satisfy the checkpoint but are not listed.

Disclaimer. W3C makes available this information as a service to the Web community. W3C does not guarantee the accuracy or permanence of information regarding checkpoint implementations. W3C holds no liability for inaccuracies. The claims in these documents have not been reviewed by vendors.

This document has been produced as part of the Web Accessibility Initiative. The goals of the WAI Authoring Tool Guidelines Working Group (AUWG) are discussed in the Working Group charter.

Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 Checkpoints

The checkpoints are listed in the same order as they appear in the checklist appendix [ATAG10-CHKLIST]. Each checkpoint includes a link to where the checkpoint is explained in the guidelines [ATAG10] and Techniques Document [ATAG10-TECHS]. Each checkpoint is followed by a list of tools known to satisfy the checkpoint.
