I also have trouble with the fact that the line is not bright as we would
But the problem with not requiring this is that one could have a self
voicing application that is not screen reader compatible and it would be
called accessible. I think that that might be a big problem. In the past
we did this by requiring AT compatibility for software. But as we move
forward with software being generalized, this old approach starts to fail.
We need to think about how we are going to deal with this situation.
Doing it the way we did - isn't working as we move forward.
We need to look at this carefully to be sure that we don't avoid one problem
and create a greater one.

I agree with Audrey's concerns about defining situations where
"productivity" is required, given that the same products
may be used in different contexts, not to mention the difficulty of defining
the threshold level of productivity.
