Status: Unknown
15:52:38 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: this is on judy to contact andrew kirkpatrick to help with last call reviews on svg, img, and contenteditable for the spec.
15:52:41 [Zakim]
+ +1.617.300.aaaa - is perhaps WGBH?
15:52:44 [janina]
15:53:52 [richardschwerdtfe]
Rich: changing this would require ARIA to go back to last call
15:54:36 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: in the UAIG, where we had alt="foo" and role-"presentation" we had a situation where it is NOT an error
15:54:55 [JF]
JF has joined #text
15:55:05 [richardschwerdtfe]
Rich: the example had to do with entering data in a filed with aria-required
15:55:35 [janina]
15:55:36 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: I will find the example
15:56:33 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: we close this defect and we no longer have a bug on role="presentation" and alt="foo"
15:57:15 [richardschwerdtfe]
15:57:23 [richardschwerdtfe]
see the example by James Nurthen
15:58:01 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: we discussed this in the User Agent Implementation Guide for ARia
15:58:12 [richardschwerdtfe]
<img alt="required" role="presentation"><input aria-required="true">
15:59:29 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I still see a conflict
15:59:46 [MichaelC]
rrsagent, make minutes
15:59:46 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate MichaelC
16:00:06 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: this is an example where it is critical

rich: aria-required states to the at that it is required
16:04:39 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: role="presentation" trumps alt in ARIA spec.
16:05:22 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I want a warning
16:05:32 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: even though we showed a valid use case
16:07:11 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: If we have alt="foo" and role="presentation" it is a warning. Do we do it in the accessibility test tools or in the HTML validation?
16:09:03 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: I think this would be better placed in a web accessibility test tool vs. html validation.
16:09:09 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I agree
16:09:15 [richardschwerdtfe]
Leonie: I agree
16:09:38 [richardschwerdtfe]
Rich: How do we get this addressed in WCAG?
16:09:48 [richardschwerdtfe]
JF: good question. This may be a PF issue
16:10:15 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: we need a technique
16:10:44 [richardschwerdtfe]
Rich: I am supportive of checking this in a test tool
16:12:10 [richardschwerdtfe]
Rich: Michael you want an action to take this back to WCAG 2?
16:12:26 [richardschwerdtfe]
Michael: we need an action for someone to create a technique?
16:13:17 [richardschwerdtfe]
Action: jfoliot to create a technique for the WCAG 2 working group
16:14:30 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: the group should create a list of techniques that need to be created but not actually create them
16:15:09 [richardschwerdtfe]
michael: If you want to pull John into the working group that does this that is fine but from a WCAG working group perspective they do not care
16:15:17 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I will write this up in an email
16:15:50 [janina]
16:16:00 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: I have not done this yet
16:16:12 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: will do so however

agendum 2. "Any updates from on-list discussion of longdesc counter-proposal" taken up [from janina]
16:17:41 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: per my action item last week I did post to the HTML list. We will be look at the aria-based proposal using ARIA for this
16:17:53 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: this was from Jonas
16:18:28 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: the proposal is that we leave "it" in and make it conforming?
16:18:45 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: are they adopting the proposal from Laura?
16:19:39 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: having all this work gone into enhancing longdesc people may not be willing to drop those changes in support of something that was available but obsolete
16:20:08 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: these are not just enhancements but they are identifications of deficiencies
16:20:29 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: these are things the browser could and should expose to non-impaired users
16:21:06 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: from an authoring perspective nothing has changed. we are specifying what user agents should be doing
16:21:30 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I don't think that their is an appetite for obsolete but conforming
16:21:44 [richardschwerdtfe]
16:22:02 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: I am not sure what the it is ...
16:22:38 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: what do we benefit by making it conforming but obsolete
16:22:52 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: obsolete states that there is a better replacement
16:22:56 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: yes
16:23:14 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: we need the ability of the end user to consume or not consume
16:23:48 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: image maps, once you hit a region, you get the alt text
16:24:07 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: there is not place in HTML that addresses the user's being able to consume or not consume
16:24:25 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: ... the corporate logo
16:25:23 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I don't see it would garner more support now since we have garnered interest in supporting longdesc
16:26:50 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: there is not steam behind Jonas proposal
16:27:43 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: we fixed the issues they were concerned about and now they still don't want it
16:29:02 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: put the proposal in and let them take their shot
16:35:35 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: we rconfirm our support of the change proposal on longdesc
16:36:19 [richardschwerdtfe]
rich: when will the call for alternate proposals appear?
16:36:39 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: already done. the deadline is Saturday June 5
16:38:23 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: we will be pushing the chairs to move on this sooner rather than later

agendum 3. "Status check on other text alternative re-open requests and change proposals: meta name=generator; role=presentation & alt;" taken up [from janina]
16:41:21 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: I had the Social Security CIO listing meeting at Stanford recently
16:41:46 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: meta generator: I will get with Steve this week
16:41:59 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: it is taking Leif's proposal to make sure it is cohesive
16:44:31 [richardschwerdtfe]
topic: figcaption
16:44:45 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: the validator could help us test for links
16:44:59 [jfoliot]
16:45:01 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: mike smith was amenable to that
16:45:08 [richardschwerdtfe]
16:45:26 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: I will double check
16:45:38 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: we are making progress and can discuss on Thursday
16:46:01 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: any more on the alt decision
16:46:03 [richardschwerdtfe]

agendum 4. "Other business?" taken up [from janina]
16:47:04 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: what would be helpful in filing a bug would be to supply emails with sets of examples showing examples - such as for figcaption
16:47:28 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: Jeff, judy said that you and she were looking at that
16:48:16 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: can we put together 6 examples of figcaption that are acceptable and that are not
16:48:23 [richardschwerdtfe]
Jeff: sure
16:48:35 [richardschwerdtfe]
Jeff: I will talk to Judy about this
16:49:25 [richardschwerdtfe]
janina: Jeff, are you available on Wednesday for the media topic on the user experience when you come across 4-5 videos on the screeen and you have descriptions for each.
16:49:33 [richardschwerdtfe]
jeff: at 5:30 to 7?
16:49:44 [richardschwerdtfe]
jf: we can put you at the top of the agenda
16:49:50 [richardschwerdtfe]
