- Are there certification schemes for accessible sites?
- The WAI icons can be placed on pages. There is no certification of the
claim that a page meets the requirements at the moment, but there is a
quality assurance activity that might produce one in the future.
Afterthought: It is also possible to use RDF or PICS to provide a
claim, in metadata.
- Will there be tools for SVG like there are for Flash?
- There are a number of tools already available, but SVG is not yet at
Recommendation status. I would expect there will be a number of tools
for using SVG.
- In using style sheets to make SVG (for example) accessible, is this
something that will be implemented in browsers, or by people supplying their
- Both. The ability to use a stylesheet is implemented in
browsers/plugins. In some cases, a stylsheet might come with a browser,
(like a template for an authoring tool) in some cases a user will have
to download it, or write it for themselves. It would help if browsers
included good stylesheet editing tools.
- How large are SVG files?
- It depends on the content. But they are comparable to bitmap images
with similar amounts of information.
- Do you work on mobile phones, and other devices, so that it will be
possible to use them for the whole web?
- There is a Device Independence activity being started at W3C, which
includes the Voice browsing, Mobile, and TV groups already working.
Clearly their work and ours are very closely related. We have worked
together with those group, and I expect that will continue.
- Can a page be tested for accessibility by a program?
- Not completely. There are requirements that can only be tested by a
person, and different tools test for different requirements, or do it in
- Can RDF be used to describe relationships between pages?
- Yes. Because it uses URI references, these can be objects in a page
(like the examples I have given in this talk) or can be seperate
