JFoliot's email on timing of Media call:
15:20:07 [oedipus]
Media call planning thread:
15:24:18 [wendy]
1. Look into previous HTML specifications (where table was first
15:24:20 [wendy]
introduced) to see if there is any clue why column methods were never
15:24:21 [wendy]
included (or perhaps they were included then scrapped for some
15:24:23 [wendy]
15:24:25 [wendy]
2. Talk with Philippe le Hegaret about DOM work wrt tables and find
15:24:26 [wendy]
out more about history of table methods from him. Ask him about
15:24:28 [wendy]
feasibility of column methods and row/span calculations.
15:24:29 [wendy]
3. Create some test files and figure out exactly how the col elements
15:24:31 [wendy]
is used. Learn more about it.
15:24:32 [wendy]
4. Dig into the existing table algorithms (in the HTML5 spec) and put
15:24:34 [wendy]
a few test cases through to determine if the new algorithm clears up
15:24:35 [wendy]
ambiguities with row and columns spans.
15:24:37 [wendy]
5. Spell out column apis and pass them past NVDA (Mick), Opera
15:24:38 [wendy]
(Charles), IE (Cynthia?), Webkit (?? James Craig), Mozilla (??) to
15:24:40 [wendy]
check for implementation feedback and feasibility.
15:24:42 [wendy]
6. If all this looks good, write a change proposal for the affected
15:24:43 [wendy]
parts of the HTML5 spec and send past the task force.

15:44:04 [Marco_Ranon]
sorry - who asked?
15:44:17 [Marco_Ranon]
15:44:34 [Marco_Ranon]
JRG: has been @aria-label omitted by design?
15:44:47 [Marco_Ranon]
JS: no
15:45:01 [Marco_Ranon]
CS: probably @aria-label needs to be made explicit
15:45:01 [oedipus]
aria-labelledby associated with an appropriate aria-label
15:45:25 [janina]
Further to discussion since the face-to-face meeting in the past couple weeks, this change proposal does include that a
15:45:25 [janina]
missing text alternative should be an error in conformance checkers. We expect the error text would reference
15:45:25 [janina]
additional guidance on text alternatives in WCAG support materials.
