JS: What we need is to produce report...
20:08:39 [Jan]
JS: of our CR implementations...
20:08:56 [Jan]
JS: whethere each implementor has met it or not met it
20:09:14 [Jan]
JS: We have a new testing framework....
20:09:36 [Jan]
JS: It will store test questions and then record yes or no
20:10:15 [Jan]
JR: Can we just put SC's in?
20:10:30 [Jan]
JS: Depends who is doing the testing
20:10:54 [Jan]

B.1.1.1 Content Auto-Generation After Authoring Sessions (WCAG):
20:24:24 [Jan]
Authors have the default option that, when web content is automatically generated for publishing after the end of an authoring session, it is accessible web content (WCAG). (Level A to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A success criteria; Level AA to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA success criteria; Level AAA to meet all WCAG 2.0 success criteria)
20:24:26 [Jan]
Note: This success criterion applies only to automatic processes specified by the authoring tool developer. It does not apply when author actions prevent generation of accessible web content.
20:33:18 [jeanne]
[discussion of the email]
20:33:33 [Jan]
Cherie: This really only covers implementor
20:34:18 [jeanne]
Cherie: The testers aren't going to test to verify, they are going to test to find the flaws.
20:35:08 [jeanne]
JR: It wasn't meant that way - I meant that you only have to test the SC that apply to your tool for the level you want to check.
20:35:37 [jeanne]
... Why do the extra work of getting AA test cases if you are only going to test for A.
20:36:01 [Jan]
Cherie: Don't test to verify
20:36:10 [jeanne]
cherie: I will want to check for all so I know where we are.
20:36:32 [Jan]
Cherie: There is value in partial results....
20:37:10 [Jan]
Tim: Possible that implementor might test for a mixture
20:37:24 [Jan]
Cherie: Not going in assuming anything
20:37:45 [jeanne]
Jeanne: We will need to test for all SC, since we need to have two implementations of every SC.
20:38:34 [jeanne]
JR: Would you test it iteratively? Test A, then test AA.
20:38:43 [Jan]
Cherie: Certainly won't test them all at A then AA then AAA
20:39:09 [Jan]
Cherie: If I have it setup I might as well test A then AA then AAA on the same SC
20:39:38 [Jan]
Cherie: Might do hardest and back down or start with easiest
20:39:41 [jeanne]
Cherie: If I test an example for A, I would test it again for AA right then, I would not go through the whole loop. I might do the hardest and back down, or start with the easiest. It will depend on the SC.
20:40:35 [Jan]
JR: What about test considerations?
20:41:10 [Jan]
Cherie: OK but very important not to step outside normative requirements
20:42:10 [Jan]
JS: WCAG had lots of diffs between evaluators that needed to be sorted out
20:42:21 [jeanne]
Jeanne: The WCAG CR testing had to resolve every discrepency from the testers, so clarifications in advance would be helpful
20:42:47 [Jan]
Cherie: Also implementor would always start with atomic tests
20:43:05 [jeanne]
... feature by feature.
20:44:18 [Tim] - what makes a good test?
20:44:30 [Jan]
20:44:40 [jeanne]
JR: The applicability conditions at the start of Part A and Part B and in the conformance level, so they are not close to the individual SC, so they may be overlooked.
20:46:03 [Jan]
Tim: Use of word "accessible web content" ...
20:49:38 [Jan]
JS: There has been a sub-group working on testing for a few months...
20:49:59 [Jan]
JS: They now have a beta version of a testing framework
20:50:31 [Jan]
JS: We give an HTML page with test instructions and links to test examples etc. then at the bottom are outcome buttons
20:51:10 [Jan]
Tim: Link to framework?
20:51:14 [Jan]
JS: Not yet
20:54:36 [Jan]
Action JR: To update the structure of the implementation report
20:54:37 [trackbot]
