For the most part, the audit is very easy to use. However, for one of my audits, my usability score was not showing up. I am not sure if it is because I made a mistake or if it that a score could not be calculated based on the answers that I was given. I am not sure because there was no indication given by the AUDIT. Also, I'm not sure that the score I calculated manually is correct and matches with the intended scoring provided in the manual. Are each of the items equally weighted?

I also noticed that in the comments section on the score page, I can only add comments into one of the lines, all of the other ones are locked. I also think that cells that are not included in the scoring sheet should be unlocked so that i can place notes on the sheet as I perform the evaluation (if I do the evaluation on the computer, i.e. with a tablet P.C. etc.)

I wish the parts of the door were described in the AUDIT--i.e. pictures provided of jamb, latch, visual representations provided of the text descriptions
