DF: if some AT does not support some accessible function, it shouldnt be wrong because some AT does not support it
15:16:38 [ericvelleman]
15:17:35 [Zakim]
15:17:40 [MartijnHoutepen]
KHS: the code is more important than the AT used, necessary to document what is used

15:21:17 [Ryladog]
15:21:25 [MartijnHoutepen]
DF: very hard to define what AT you have to use per SC, and probably double work. Some criteria are easy to check on the basis of code

15:23:28 [Mike_Elledge]
15:23:32 [MartijnHoutepen]

SAZ: not sure it is feasible to require to report every tool used per check
15:27:08 [MartijnHoutepen]
SAZ: It can be an option for reporting
15:27:17 [shadi]
15:28:10 [ericvelleman]
15:28:17 [MartijnHoutepen]
SAZ: natural part of evaluation to define and document tools used
15:28:35 [Detlev]
ack me
15:29:17 [MartijnHoutepen]
DF: there is a certain risk if you define the tools used, if you do not use every tool on every sc

Eric will make a proposal on the list. Please review and comment the coming days so we can include it into the next editor draft

SAZ: if step 1d would be : "define the tools / methods to be used (optional)"
15:35:59 [MartijnHoutepen]
SAZ: or combine 3.1.4 and 3.1.5
15:37:06 [MartijnHoutepen]
EV: see 3.4.5 step 4e
15:38:04 [Detlev]
15:38:10 [shadi]
15:38:24 [MartijnHoutepen]

15:45:48 [Ryladog]
15:46:37 [shadi]
15:46:43 [MartijnHoutepen]

Martijn: I'm fine with *not* defining randim it if the process as straightforward as suggrsted by Richard
15:48:14 [MartijnHoutepen]
KHS: this can go hand in hand with the level of detail of testing

15:50:32 [MartijnHoutepen]
SAZ: we might take a more pragmatic approach: make it random-like
15:50:51 [MartijnHoutepen]
SAZ: different websites need different approaches
