Topic: 1.2.3
17:04:57 [jeanne]
1.2.3 Repair Missing Associations:
17:04:57 [jeanne]
The user can specify whether or not the user agent should attempt to predict associations from author-specified presentation attributes (i.e. position and appearance). (Level AAA)
17:04:57 [jeanne]
Intent
17:04:57 [jeanne]
Users can use the appearance or position of an item to determine its importance when scanning a document for information. Assistive Technologies mostly rely on structured text, such as text coded as heading or labels. If the browser uses heuristics to identify text that stands out from others, it can render the page with the best guess of what the structure could be.
17:04:59 [jeanne]
Examples:
17:05:01 [jeanne]
Saidah uses a web-based text to speech app to read web pages when away from her home computer. She tries to find a news article on a multi-car accident on the freeway she overheard people talking about on the way to library. She goes to a news website to look for an article on the event. The website has no headings on the list of current events articles but has a long list. Saidah does not want
17:05:07 [jeanne]
to listen to the teaser for each story, and selects a command in her browser to figure out the headings from the appearance of the page. The browser notes the consistent use of a CSS style for phrases in each paragraph that are bold, in a different color and a larger font size. The browser then redraws the page with those phrases marked as headings. Saidah then uses the feature in her text-to-speech
17:05:12 [jeanne]
app to read out the headings and quickly finds the article on the car accident.
17:05:13 [jeanne]
Mateus is using a screenreader to complete a form. The form fields are not labeled so he does not know what should be entered in each field. He selects an option in his browser to render the page with structured text, which guesses that the text to the left of each form field is the label, and re-renders the page with the text structured as a label. Mateus finishes completing the form.

Topic: 1.9
17:30:45 [Greg]
Kim and I report that we had moved everything out of 1.9 during our major reorganization of Keyboard, Focus, and Navigation (on the UA Wiki), but didn't make clear enough that the section then went away (in part because numbers changed between when we wrote the wiki page and when the changes were made). Here's disposition:
17:30:46 [Greg]
1.9.1 User Interface Focus: An active input focus is provided. (Level A) --> THIS WENT AWAY 2.1.2 requires a keyboard focus for each viewport, and 1.3.1 requires the cursor be highlighted, so this adds nothing.
17:30:48 [Greg]
1.9.2 Extensions Focusable: The keyboard focus can navigate within extensions to the user interface. (Level A) --> NOW 4.2.1
17:30:49 [Greg]
1.9.3 Retrieve Focus: At any time, the user agent can retrieve input focus from a nested viewport (including nested viewports that are user agents). (Level A) --> NOW 4.2.2
17:30:51 [Greg]
1.9.4 Return Focus: Embedded user agents must support a mechanism for returning active input focus to the base user agent. (Level A) --> NOW 4.2.3
17:35:24 [JAllan]
resolved: delete all of GL 1.9 as it is all covered in 4.2
17:36:33 [JAllan]
kim and greg will work on IER for 4.2 and incorporate leftover bits from 1.9
17:36:43 [jeanne]
action: jeanne to renumber Principle 1 to compensate for the removal of 1.9
17:36:44 [trackbot]

topic: 1.1.4 Rendering Alternative (Enhanced): The user can specify the cascade order in which to render alternative content. (Level AA)
17:37:21 [sharper]
17:37:22 [sharper]
Editors' Note: where do we put the ability for the user to individually pick an image and have the image displayed. It should not have to be an all or nothing.
17:37:22 [sharper]
Added functionality would allow Mary to right click (context menu) on an image to list and select the rendering of the available alternatives (thumbnail, original size, full screen, low resolution, high resolution, alt text, long description, file name)
17:37:24 [sharper]
Added functionality would allow Juan to right click (context menu) on an video to list and select the rendering of the available alternatives (still image, caption languages, audio languages, audio-description languages)

17:38:08 [sharper]
Examples of Success Criterion 1.1.4:
17:38:08 [sharper]
Mary has a learning disability. She finds looking at images on a webpage very distracting. Mary would like to see all images rendered in the following order. First, for images with long descriptions have the long description rendered in place of the image. If the long description does not exit, she wants the ‘alt text’ to be rendered. If neither is available, Mary wants the file name rendered. Added functionality would allow Mary to right click (con
17:38:08 [sharper]
menu) on an image to list and select the rendering of the available alternatives (thumbnail, original size, full screen, low resolution, high resolution, alt text, long description, file name)
17:38:09 [sharper]
Juan is hard of hearing. He wants to always see video on the page. Also, Juan would like the Spanish language track used if available, along with Spanish captions as a default. If these are not available, he wants to see the video with English audio and captions. If no captions are available Juan wants the the video and English audio. Added functionality would allow Juan to right click (context menu) on an video to list and select the rendering of the
17:38:14 [sharper]
available alternatives (still image, caption languages, audio languages, audio-description languages)

2.3.2 Present Direct Commands in Rendered Content (former 2.1.6):
17:45:26 [JAllan]
The user can have any recognized direct commands (e.g. accesskey) in rendered content be presented with their associated elements. (Level A)
17:45:40 [JAllan]
2.3.3 Direct activation (former 2.7.6)
17:45:41 [JAllan]
: The user can move directly to and activate any operable elements in rendered content. (Level AA)
17:46:04 [JAllan]
2.5.1 Discover navigation and activation keystrokes: The user can discover direct navigation and activation keystrokes both programmatically and via perceivable labels. (Level A)
17:48:28 [Greg]
Per the Wiki page on Keyboard, Focus and Navigation Restructuring: 2.7.1 Discover navigation and activation keystrokes, is about direct navigation/activation so becomes 2.3.3 and 2.3.4, which are now numbered 2.3.2 Present Direct Commands in Rendered Content and 2.3.4 Present Direct Commands in User Interface.
17:49:09 [Greg]
Of course, it *was* 2.7.1 but is now 2.5.1, but in either case should be deleted.
17:49:44 [Greg]
To sum up, 2.5.1 Discover navigation and activation keystrokes has been replaced by 2.3.2 Present Direct Commands in Rendered Content and 2.3.4 Present Direct Commands in User Interface.
17:58:02 [Greg]
It looks like 4.1.6 Properties should include (j) keyboard shortcuts.
17:58:18 [Greg]
THEN all of 2.5.1 would be covered by 2.3.2, 2.3.4, and 4.1.6.

When he needs to perform a new operation with the browser user interface, he searches for it in the menus and notes whether the menu item has a "⌘” label (e.g. “Copy ⌘C”), which indicates the direct activation command he can use in the future to avoid having to traverse the menus.

topic: 2.5.7
19:24:07 [sharper]
Intent of Success Criterion 2.5.7 :
19:24:08 [sharper]
Often the user agent will choose by default the elements it considers important for structured navigation, however these may not be relevant in all circumstances. It may be that the user wishes to navigate via informal mechanisms such as microformats, decentralised extended elements, or via a particular styling which is used to convey a structure in the visual navigation, but which does not exist in the element hierarchy.
19:24:25 [sharper]
Examples of Success Criterion 2.5.7 :
19:24:25 [sharper]
Fred is blind and wishes to navigate through the menu structure usingthe Tab key, however the menu is a set of nested list elements with a particular HTML class attribute denoting the menu-submenu relationship. Because Fred's user agent allows him to configure important elements he can explicitly include the class name as an important element for navigation.
19:24:26 [sharper]
Jane uses a mobile device (and is often situationally impaired) and often encounters tables laid out using floating DIV elements with specific class names denoting the visual styling. In this case Jane cannot use the cursor keys to move around these tabular layouts having instead to use the tab key to move sequentially left-to-right top-to-bottom. Jane's browser does not provide the facility for the configuration of important elements and so she can not pick
19:24:28 [sharper]
the classes associated with these DIV element, and therefore cannot use the cursor key used to move logically through columns or rows.

19:29:26 [Greg]
I'd like to add something specific to the Fred example, but what would it be? That is, how would it work in practice? "He then assigns a keyboard shortcut to navigate to the next element with the same class name as the element that has the focus"?
19:32:05 [Greg]
I also note that this example goes beyond what is actually required by the SC (which is not necessarily bad, but it may mean the SC needs to be broadened if we want to include this functionality. Specifically, the example is about using attributes to select "important elements", but the SC only discusses elements types (e.g. h1, li, img).
19:32:56 [JAllan]
jeanne: we have made examples go beyond the SC. and have language in the document about this so folks are encouraged to do more

How about adding: "Rachel uses a command to navigate to the nearest parent header above the current focus location. However, she's using a document that uses a class other than h2, so she adds this class to the browser's definition of what it treats as a header."

Intent of Success Criterion 1.10.3:
19:38:47 [sharper]
Sometimes authors will visually convey relationships between elements by spatially grouping them, by giving them the same coloration or background, and so forth. Users may not be able to perceive those attributes, such as when using a screen reader, or when strong magnification makes it difficult to make a mental model of the screen layout. In those cases the user agent can assist by providing a view of the data that groups elements that that user agent
19:38:47 [sharper]
perceives as implying relationships.

Topic: 4.2.2 Retrieve Focus
19:53:02 [KimPatch]
Intent of Success Criterion 4.2.2 (former 1.9.6, before that 3.11.6):
19:53:04 [KimPatch]
Historically keyboard users have had difficulty with nested user agents trapping keyboard focus, preventing the user from activating host browser commands including navigation and menus.

Examples of Success Criterion 4.2.2 (former 1.9.6, before that 3.11.6):
19:53:07 [KimPatch]
Ari is using a video hosting site where each page hosts a nested media player. He presses Tab until the focus in on the media player, then presses Enter to activate and put the keyboard focus on it. When he’s finished watching the video, he presses Tab to navigate to the comments below the video, but cannot get the focus to leave the video player. He presses Alt+Left to return to the...
19:53:08 [KimPatch]
...previous page, but that also fails because the video player is consuming those keystrokes. Luckily, Ari knows that Shift+Esc will return focus from a nested user agent, with or without its cooperation. Thus, even a badly behaved nested user agent cannot prevent Ari from getting on with his work.
19:53:30 [Greg]
The SC previously had mixed singular and plural, so we fixed that.
