B.2.1.2 If user deactivates prompts, it is not tool's fault

Raised by:
Reed Shaffner
Opened on:
B.2.1.2 Warn "A" Accessible: If an authoring action or instruction will always lead to the creation of content that cannot be made to meet the level "A" Web content accessibility benchmarks other than by making an alternative version, then a warning is displayed.
[RS1]Additionally, there needs to be a clause similar to “….or interoperates with a plug in or other technology which provides this behavior”, and inclusion of something which states that if the user or administrator has deactivated these prompts, it’s not the tool’s fault.
 [JR2]This whole SC is really intended to warn developers away from including such instructions.

Related notes:

JR: The conformance scheme draws a circle around the performance for what plugins are included in the conformance.

RS: give an additional example to make it more general. We have to be careful about specifying UI design. Instead we modify the example to make it more generic.

Reed is satisfied.
