12:37:42 [Zakim]
+Pat_Case
12:37:57 [shadi]
jb: Shawn and Judy have been coordinating with WCAG WG on how to make things even clearer
12:37:58 [shawn]
zakim, Pat_Case is Justin
12:37:58 [Zakim]
+Justin; got it
12:38:34 [shadi]
jb: for example, would it be possible to take out some of the content from the conformance section?
12:38:55 [shadi]
...to keep it brief and less complex to read
12:39:29 [shadi]
jb: want to compare the conformance section to other W3C publications
12:40:01 [shadi]
jb: after people have read the conformance section, how much do they understand?
12:41:01 [shadi]
hs: after reading, wasn't really sure understood what it exactly meant
12:41:01 [Harvey]
Harvey has joined #eo
12:41:15 [shadi]
...would be good t provide a summary and reduce complexity
12:41:26 [shadi]
aa: generally understood it
12:41:52 [shadi]
jb: would you be able to describe it to somebody?
12:41:57 [shadi]
jw: not really
12:42:07 [shadi]
aa: probably yes
12:42:15 [shadi]
jb: how would you describe it?
12:43:18 [Zakim]
+Bingham
12:43:27 [Zakim]
-Bingham
12:43:30 [shadi]
wl: conformance means meeting the success criteria
12:43:46 [shadi]
aa: there may be alternatives
12:44:01 [Zakim]
+Bingham
12:44:16 [judy]
[you do need to conform to the success criteria; you don't need to conform to the techniques; and there may be other ways that you can conform, too.]
12:45:58 [shadi]
hs: looks clear
12:46:32 [shadi]
q+ to remove the ", too"
12:47:16 [Alan]
q+
12:47:58 [shadi]
jt: kind of understood how to do exceptions to the techniques, but sounds difficult and wouldn't want to do it
12:48:25 [shadi]
as: not sure if it is easily readable by non-native speakers
12:48:27 [shadi]
q-
12:48:32 [shadi]
ack alan
12:49:24 [shadi]
as: would describe conformance model as different technologies are supported, different ways to reach conformance
12:49:36 [shadi]
as: wondering why baseline is not mentioned?
12:49:44 [shadi]
slh: has been removed
12:50:39 [Mark]
Mark has joined #eo
12:51:10 [shadi]
jt: <missed questions>
12:51:30 [shadi]
slh: have additional external materials to explain the specifics
12:52:23 [shadi]
jb: when people are looking at what's normative vs what's external, what do people feel?
12:52:35 [shadi]
as: user agents
12:53:32 [shadi]
aa: additional information should suggest alternatives
12:53:40 [shadi]
jb: advisory techniques
12:54:43 [shadi]
wl: for each success criteria there are techniques, but that's not a normative definition of conformance
12:55:18 [shadi]
slh: approach is to just have the basic normative information in this document
12:55:32 [shadi]
...the other document has examples and additional information
12:55:46 [shadi]
...maybe even different sections to address different audience
12:56:38 [shadi]
jb: some W3C publications split up different parts of the documents into different chunks
12:56:52 [shawn]
q+ to ask (later when other topics are done) about "Accessibility-supported Content Technologies (AsCT)"
12:57:08 [shadi]
...for example a condensed part of the normative section, then additional information
12:57:47 [shadi]
jb: Justin asked who the audience is, let's talk about that
12:58:26 [shadi]
...what are the audiences for "conformance" -who and how will they use it
12:58:38 [shadi]
wl: people who will write about the guidelines
12:59:10 [shadi]
ack shawn
12:59:10 [Zakim]
shawn, you wanted to ask (later when other topics are done) about "Accessibility-supported Content Technologies (AsCT)"
12:59:31 [shadi]
slh: web developer who wants to claim conformance
12:59:51 [shadi]
slh: policy maker who wants to decide conformance level
13:00:35 [shadi]
slh: users (particularly people with disabilities) who want to know what a conformance statement means
13:01:04 [shawn]
q+ to ask (later when other topics are done) about "Accessibility-supported Content Technologies (AsCT)"
13:02:41 [shadi]
jb: would it help to add a brief summary up-front?
13:04:02 [shadi]
wl: seems like there was a scope-creep, the section grew
13:04:33 [shadi]
jb: what about examples?
13:04:41 [shadi]
ds: wouldn't help
13:04:57 [shadi]
jt: depends on the audience
13:05:23 [Mark]
The challenge for cpolicymakers is how to EASILY figure out the conformance level that's right for a given piece of content, and how to operationlize that. Since a conformance statement means sticking your neck out to say "this is accessible", many people want to stick their neck out only as far as it needs to go. that's at least one audience
13:05:30 [Zakim]
-doyle
13:05:54 [shadi]
jb: doesn't have to be necessarily within the same document
13:06:05 [shawn]
zakim, who is here?
13:06:05 [Zakim]
On the phone I see Judy, Jack, Andrew_Arch, Shawn, Shadi (muted), Loughborough, Henny_Swan, Sylvie (muted), Alan, Justin, Bingham

13:06:47 [Zakim]

14:32:29 [shadi]
ds: think it is helpful information

slh: should be clear in all other supporting documents, not necessarily here
14:34:13 [shawn]
s/what do people think of "partial conformance"/what do people think of "partial conformance"? Content that conforms to WCAG 1.0
