ISSUE-84: B.2.4.3 is unclear what is meant by “Object Database”

B.2.4.3 is unclear what is meant by “Object Database”

Raised by:
Reed Shaffner
Opened on:
B.2.4.3 Acceptable Sources: Authoring tools only supply equivalent alternatives from the following sources:
o (a) Author-Entered: equivalent alternatives previously entered by authors for the same non-text object (e.g., by the same author, or another author on a collaborative system),
o (b) From Object Database: equivalent alternatives stored with the non-text object in an object database (or equivalent), or
o (c) Null when Appropriate: null equivalent alternatives for non-text objects that the authoring tool can detect are only used for visual formatting.
 [RS1]What is this [object database]?  Sorry, probably my ignorance here.
 [JR2]Clip art database etc…..maybe we can drop “object” or maybe there is a better word?
