I believe Mary Francis is correct. I suggest a functional definition of
AT be adopted to inspire innovation among vendors.

Subject: [teitac-subparta] Discussion
While this discussion of AT is very interesting and I am learning a lot
about what lists and information is available, is not this whole
discussion out of scope for the TEITAC? Are we not developing regs for
purchasing (508) or developing (508/255) or selling (255) equipment that
is accessible? It seems to me that most of the last two days
discussions, while important not to be lost as ideas in general, apply
to other areas of regulation such as Section 504/ADA/Accommodation
The sub-part A definition of Assistive Technology is simply a definition
to clarify its use in the new 508/255 regs and as such needs to robust
and technologically neutral.
