14:16:16 [Ryladog]
EV: I already had alot of text for 4 and 5, but I took it out, so I can start with that, and I would like you to shoot at it
14:16:36 [Ryladog]
EV: Step 4; Auditing of Sample
14:17:36 [Ryladog]
EV: You would audit that selected sample. How to use techniques in step 4b
14:18:00 [Ryladog]
EV: Do you need to add accessibility support in the evaluation process?
14:18:44 [Ryladog]
EV: Archiving of web pages - is this a good idea to discuss. And if you do, how do you do this
14:19:08 [Ryladog]
EV: I want to start on non-optional items in Parts 4 and 5
14:20:06 [Ryladog]
EV: Accessibility Statements samples that we saw very different. So we will go with trying to provide some guidance
14:20:42 [Ryladog]
EV: Suggestions for Repairs: Machine readable reporting is important
14:21:04 [Ryladog]
EV: Commments on step 4 on Auditing?

14:23:17 [vivienne]
ack me
14:23:54 [Ryladog]

14:24:21 [Ryladog]
Viv: Again, starting with the purpose of what the user needs to do on the site
14:25:50 [Ryladog]
Kathy: The next step is auditing, what are the different ways to go through the actual sample, use cases, user stories, WCAG step by step
14:26:05 [vivienne]
I tend to do both checking all the WCAG 2 points, as well as making sure all use cases can be accomplished
14:26:24 [Kathy]
zakim, mute me
14:26:24 [Zakim]
Kathy should now be muted

14:27:11 [ericvelleman]
14:27:37 [Zakim]
14:28:07 [Ryladog]
Richard: I am actually concerned that we need to ensure that users can perform all of the functions of the site
14:28:17 [Ryladog]
EV: If you look at use cases, what way we choose things in Step 3
14:28:27 [Ryladog]
EV: Anything else?
14:28:55 [vivienne]
14:28:58 [vivienne]
ack me
14:29:05 [Ryladog]
EV: Techniques, is there anyone that has techniques. We have said that the techniques are not the success criteria
14:30:06 [Ryladog]
Viv: We have to come back to the knowledge of WCAG here, they have to understand the techique and Failures of WCAG. Maybe we need to go into deal

14:30:27 [Sarah_Swierenga]
I agree with Vivienn's comments about evaluators WCAG2.0 expertise.
14:30:53 [MartijnHoutepen]
Zakim, q- Kerstin
14:30:53 [Zakim]
I see no one on the speaker queue
14:31:17 [Ryladog]
Kerstin: Techniques we use, we identify proplems, thenb we propose actions, and then the techniques for that set we use
14:31:52 [Zakim]
+ +1.703.983.aabb
14:31:57 [Ryladog]
Kerstin: It depends on what the clients wants. Some want Pass/Fail, others want more
14:32:13 [Ryladog]
EV: We cover that in Step 2
14:32:35 [Ryladog]
Kerstin: We have this in the Appendix examplke 1, 2 and 3
14:32:36 [ssirois]
I would look at techniques as possible solutions or lines of thought we can propose to problems we encountered on the website regarding the success criterias.
14:32:52 [Ryladog]
Tim: I am calling in remotely
14:33:24 [Ryladog]
EV: Step 4 audit, how to use the technique
14:33:32 [ssirois]
14:33:38 [Zakim]
14:34:02 [Ryladog]
EV: Accessibility Support Step 4c - but does this mean that we ask them to use AT?

Kerstin should now be muted
14:34:34 [vivienne]
I use NVDA

my clients want to know if people can use their screen readers

14:34:53 [Kathy]
14:34:53 [vivienne]
ack me
14:35:11 [Ryladog]
EV: It depends on the level of detail the client wants. How do you cover accessibility support. Vivienna you use NVDA, do you use that for a tool
14:36:24 [Ryladog]
Viv: I use a screenreader to test the content. It is a good thing to do using AT during your testing. I like to use it to verify my findings
14:36:24 [vivienne]

14:36:43 [shadi]
[[sidenote: accessibility support does not necessarily mean testing with AT but ensuring that a technique works with a set of target ATs (this information could come from an accessibility support database or such); this is, however, different to the question if ATs should be part of the testing process or not]]
14:36:58 [MartijnHoutepen]
Zakim, q- _
14:36:58 [Zakim]
I see Ryladog on the speaker queue
14:37:04 [Sarah_Swierenga]
Mike and I always use JAWS, NDVA, ZoomText, and various items, e.g., color contrast, linearization, heading structure, field labels, from the Web Accessibility Toolbar to conduct a manual review of the pages.
14:37:14 [Sarah_Swierenga]
14:37:32 [Ryladog]
Kathy: Always use JAWS, NVDA, Window Eyes, ZoomText for everything
14:37:49 [Ryladog]
EV: Doesn't this take a lot of time?
14:37:53 [ssirois]
My first audit step is to go through the page with my keyboard, a screen reader and i usualy surf in text mode... so that i'm aware of possible issues while auditing with my set of "questions".

14:41:13 [Ryladog]
Sarah: We always do a manual review with keyboard and WAT, WAVE, but we never send anything out the door with NVDA, JAWS, ZoomText

14:42:17 [Sarah_Swierenga]
clarification: we don't send anything out "without" using JAWS, NDVA, and ZoomText to conduct a manual evaluation.

I see Kerstin on the speaker queue
14:44:48 [ericvelleman]
