11.6.3: Preservation of accessibility information in transformations

If the authoring tool provides restructuring transformations or re-coding transformations, then accessibility information shall be preserved in the output if equivalent mechanisms exist in the content technology of the output.

Notes

  1. Restructuring transformations are transformations in which the content technology stays the same, but the structural features of the content are changed (e.g. linearizing tables, splitting a document into pages).
  2. Re-coding transformations are transformations in which the technology used to encode the content is changed.

Pre-conditions
  1. The software is an authoring tool.
  2. The authoring tool provides restructuring transformations or re-coding transformations.
Procedure
  1. For a restructuring transformation, check if the accessibility information is preserved in the output.
  2. For a restructuring transformation, check if the content technology supports accessibility information for the restructured form of the information.
  3. For a re-coding transformation, check if the accessibility information is preserved in the output.
  4. For a restructuring transformation, check if the accessibility information is supported by the technology of the re-coded output.
Result Pass: Check 1 is true or checks 1 and 2 are false or check 3 is true or checks 3 and 4 are false
Fail: Check 1 is false and check 2 is true
