'interoperability with evaluation tools' concerns me. If we have to
provide some kind of 'tight' interoperability with third party tools, it
exact same problem we have with AT-IT interoperability: where are the
standards that define this? And this might trigger licensing issues,
cost for everyone.
This arose from current vendors of assessment/remediation tools concern
that by defining authoring tools as "a" tool, they would be precluded
from this market. My interpretation here is that, for example, an
authoring tool provided could claim compliance with this rule if they
know of another tool that can be packaged with theirs, or purchased
independently, that performs this functionality as part of their
authoring process. I don't think, for example, external tools that do
web assessment and remediation stand-alone without some actual
integration in to the authoring process would qualify here. This may
require more specific constrains and/or additional supplemental language
to aid the Access-Board and FAR folks to finalize it.
