Day 20: ATAG, Part B

Today I moved onto the second major portion of the Authoring Tools Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) spec to learn about how the content and code being produced by authoring tools should be accessible and how authors should be able to easily make that happen. It comes to no surprise that there are more references to WCAG principles and its conformance levels.

Things I accomplished

What I learned today

  • Part B has 4 principles, 11 guidelines, and 32 success criteria.
  • The second major part of ATAG is intended to encourage support of the production of accessible content by the author in that:
    1. all automatically generated web content should be accessible (conforming to WCAG 2.0),
    2. authoring tools need to help authors in produce accessible content (conforming to WCAG 2.0),
    3. accessibility checks and repair options should be available to the author which identify accessibility problems that don’t conform to WCAG 2.0, and
    4. accessibility features should be prominent and documented for ease of use by the author.
