Tangent on Sylvie's comment:
<shawn> http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/index.php?title=How_People_Use_the_Web_Notes&diff=1190&oldid=991 - under Line 24
all comments clear. no discussion needed.
Shawn: introduction to three
variants, orignial WAI, W3C new, and accessibility basics
... should they be retained, merged or what?
Liam: web accessibility basics - appropraite to keep in separate to the other 2
Sylvie: read all three. has difficulty choosing. the 2005 one seems to point to older resources.
Shawn: is there anything in the old one that is particularly good that should be retained? the WAI page is aimed at people who are more focussed on accessibiity, whereas the W3C one and the WebEd one are more for people who come across it looking for something else
Shadi: How big is the difference in relation to the WAI pages as a more informed audience
Shawn: will take furhter action
Shawn: currently has section in overview
Shawn: Standard will be free from
W3C but have to indicate how it is available from ISO - which
wont be free
... Do we need to say more
Sylive: perhaps some more information about what the ISO means
Shadi: maybe phrasing of benefits
in the FAQ could have some rewording and included in the
... in particular why? and Impact
... Maybe need more questions in the FAQ's for particular types of audience eg referencing for people who can't reference WCAG directly
... also change management and translations
<shawn> Suzette: ISO has positive impact
Shawn: one idea is that overview and FAQ have something short
Shadi: Most crucial part is to contextualise and show the benefits and you can still get it for free
Sylvie: not clear about how to indicate what you might be conforming too - are those levels in the ISO
Shawn: the levels are still present in the standard
Shadi: Example is French government who could not adopt WCAG because it is not a standard they recognize, and then went and adapted WCAG.
Liam: is this relavant to anyone who isn't involved in legislature? if you're a developer, you don't need to pay attention to this bit.
<Liam> "Do YOU have legal or bureaucratic barriers to referencing WCAG? Fear Not! You can now reference it as ISO 40500! Woo Hoo!
Shawn: need to avoid multiple linking between overview, FAQs etc
