(proposed draft) ER WG http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/erwg-charter.html The mission of the Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group (ER WG) is: to document techniques for creating Evaluation and Repair Tools; to find tools that implement the techniques and where there are none, prototype or participate in the development of an implementation; to assess the implementation of these techniques in evaluation and repair tools; to provide a discussion forum to review and collaborate on tool development. AU WG http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/charter3 To complete the development of accessibility guidelines for authoring tools, and to perform initial assessment of implementation of these guidelines by authoring tool manufacturers. These guidelines should address how authoring tools can: provide author support for creating accessible Web documents; ensure an accessible user interface for authors with disabilities. Assessment of implementation is expected to allow improvement to the supporting documents produced by the group, and if necessary to begin revision of the guidelines themselves. 3:45-5:00 Planning What needs to be done?
