Subject: Re: [office-accessibility] Eclipse ACTF project

Hi Chieko,

This is very nice work, thank you for releasing it!

I ran it on our v1.0 accessibility guidelines, and found a total of 7 
claimed errors.  Two of them are in Chapter 3 (hi Dave!) - in both cases 
complaints about unlabeled graphics, yet both graphics have text 
illustrations.  Looking more closely, I see that Dave didn't attach that 
"illustration" text to the image as a caption.  However, when I did 
that, aDesigner still complained about it.  Should it?

Separately, it complained about all of the data tables.  It wanted a 
header (which I don't think is needed) for the layout table in 3.1.  And 
it wanted captions for that table and 3 others.  When I put captions on 
those tables, aDesigner stopped complaining, so that worked at least.

I vaguely remember you showing a tool that would highlight text it 
thought might be a header but wasn't marked as such.  Is that capability 
buried in aDesigner?  I couldn't find it.

I'm sorry we didn't test our document with this tool!  Now I need to 
release a v1.0.1.... :-)
