ISSUE-89: B.2.5.4 Recording the accessibility of a template is unrealistic
B.2.5.4 Recording the accessibility of a template is unrealistic
- ATAG Part B
- Raised by:
- Reed Shaffner
- Opened on:
- B.2.5.4 New Templates: If authors can use the authoring tool to create new templates for use by a template selection mechanism, they can record the accessibility status of the new templates.
Â [RS1]This seems like the wrong way to do this.Â How do authors realistically know the status of a template?Â Some authoring tools have hundreds of millions of users and there is no way they can all accurately anticipate accessibility end to end.Â As a metaphor, imagine putting a hundred million people in front of a tomato, how many people would classify it as a fruit and how many as a vegetable?Â And thatâ€™s much simplerâ€¦
Â [JR2]Weâ€™re presuming that itâ€™s the output of a checker tool not the authorâ€™s personal opinion.

It is labelled as "can". Changed to "have the option".Jeanne F Spellman, 29 Jul 2008, 00:08:55
