1. B.2.5.1 Identify Pre-Authored Content Accessibility (Proposal 1)

from Jan's email of 18 June 2013

Proposal #1: To align the wording of B.2.5.1 with that of B.2.4.2 ("Identify Template Accessibility"). I also suggest moving the e.g. list to a new definition (proposal#3) - and removing "themes" since these are already examples of templates (http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/2013/ED-ATAG20-20130614/#def-Template):

B.2.5.1 Identify Pre-Authored Content Accessibility: If the *authoring tool* includes a *selection mechanism for pre-authored content* and provides any non-*accessible pre-authored content* *options*, then the content is provided such that the selection mechanism can display distinctions between the accessible and non-accessible options. (Level AA)

- Note: The distinction can involve providing information for the accessible pre-authored content, the non-accessible pre-authored content or both.

2. B.2.5.2 Accessible Pre-Authored Content Options (WCAG) Proposal #2

from Jan's email of 18 June 2013

Proposal #2: To drop B.2.5.2 and replace it with a Level AA requirement modelled on the Level A template requirement (B.2.4.1). In a way this a lower bar than the current version (which requires every item to be tagged), but it can also been seen as higher since previously the SC was AAA and all of the content could be inaccessible as long as it was tagged as such:

B.2.5.2 Accessible Pre-Authored Content Options (WCAG): If the *authoring tool* provides *pre-authored content*, then a range of *accessible pre-authored content (to WCAG 2.0 Level AA)* *options* are provided. (Level AA)

3. PROPOSAL #3: To define THREE "pre-authored content"-related terms that are missing from the glossary:

from Jan's email of 18 June 2013

PROPOSAL #3: To define THREE "pre-authored content"-related terms that are missing from the glossary:

Pre-authored content:
Pieces of web content, created prior to an authoring session, that the authoring tool developer makes available to authors to use in the content being edited. Examples include clip art, sample videos, user interface widgets.
Note 1: For templates, an incomplete form of pre-authored content, refer to Guideline B.2.4.
Note 2: If the authoring tool uses pre-authored content automatically, refer to Guideline B.1.1.

Accessible pre-authored content (WCAG):
*Pre-authored content* that is either already *accessible content (WCAG)* or would be accessible, if it was appropriately inserted into an empty document.
Note: If extensive author input is required to make use of pre-authored content, the content may in fact be a *template*.

Pre-authored selection mechanism
A function beyond standard file selection that allows *authors* to select *pre-authored content* to use in an *authoring session* (e.g. clip art gallery, widget palette).
