Jutta Treviranus, Jan Richards, Ian Jacobs, Charles McCathieNevile, Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, World Wide Web Consortium, Recommendation REC-ATAG10-20000203, February 2000.

This specification provides guidelines for Web authoring tool developers. Its purpose is two-fold: to assist developers in designing authoring tools that produce accessible Web content and to assist developers in creating an accessible authoring interface. Authoring tools can enable, encourage, and assist users ("authors") in the creation of accessible Web content through prompts, alerts, checking and repair functions, help files and automated tools. It is just as important that all people be able to author content as it is for all people to have access to it. The tools used to create this information must therefore be accessible themselves. Adoption of these guidelines will contribute to the proliferation of Web content that can be read by a broader range of readers and authoring tools that can be used by a broader range of authors. This document is part of a series of accessibility documents published by the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
