<Marco_Ranon> add a11y_focus keyword and assign to GJR

<Joshue> Bug 10780 - reference to definition of Action insufficient for definition of accesskey

<kliehm> The HTML a11y bug triage sub-team thinks Gregory should provide more information. 10888 would be the master bug for all accesskey related issues.

<Joshue> Bug accepted. Checked in as WHATWG revision r5571.

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10782

<Joshue> The HTML a11y bug triage sub-team thinks Gregory should file seperate bugs for each of these issues. 10888 would be the master bug for all accesskey related issues.

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10783

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10784

<Joshue> Bug 10784 - change summary from an attribute to an element

<Joshue> This is a valid request, suggest escalating to HTML A11ytf.

<kliehm> Bug #10896: Enable device independent access to event handlers

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10896

<kliehm> STATUS: NEW, now assigned to DOM events group, a11ytf keyword already present. No action required.

<kliehm> Bug #10903: Provide an introduction to wai-aria in the wai aria section of the spec

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10903

<kliehm> The bug is in good hands, already an issue, adding a11yTF keyword.

<kliehm> Bug #10905: Clarify how assigning an accesskey to an element affects the elements default role

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10905

<kliehm> Bug has been taken care of in the past, no action required

<kliehm> Bug #10906: Make the conforming use of placeholder dependent on the presence of a label

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10906

<Marco_Ranon> The placeholder attribute

<Marco_Ranon> This attribute can be used on form elements to predefine text that disappears as soon as the field gets focus. It#s a visual indication of what is expected in the field. If, and only if, the field has no label otherwise, this placeholder text will be used to generate the AccessibleName, the name the screen reader speaks for the field when it gains focus. If the field has a label provided by...

<Marco_Ranon> ...the label element or an ARIA construct, the placeholder text will be ignored.

<kliehm> Bug #10914: Allow multiple space separated values for the ARIA role attribute

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10914

<kliehm> Adding a11yTF keyword, assigning to Steve Faulkner.

<kliehm> http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/content-models.html#embedded-content-0

Homework: look at embedded content and compare fallback mechanisms and exposure to AT.
