14:52:01 [annika]
yehya: Main aspect is adaptivity. How can the system adapt to the needs of the user?
14:52:28 [annika]
... User models and user profiles can be use to adapt the web site, e.g for a blind user.
14:52:32 [shawn]
[ Shawn notes it is related to text customization! :-]
14:53:03 [annika]
yehya: And about mainstreaming adaptivity of user interfaces.
14:54:13 [shawn]
[ Shawn asks Yehya & Christos to send questions for the upcoming symposium on tc4r related to text customization and user modelling ]
14:54:15 [annika]
... Another aspect: Design of UIs, e.g. for elderly users. The design system can give recommendation during development of UI.

... What are the cues / evidence used to collect information about the user (e.g. how does the system know that a user is blind)?
14:56:42 [annika]
yehya: Automatic approach and manual approach. Manual is prefered.
14:57:05 [annika]
... Automatic approach is of limited use, must be confirmed by the user.
14:57:15 [Zakim]
14:57:29 [annika]

shawn: Life captioning is available. So no additional scribe is needed.
15:02:14 [annika]
shawn: zakim has a limited number of lines.
15:02:37 [annika]

15:02:52 [annika]
... Zakim supports about 50 lines.
15:03:58 [annika]
kerstin: the system we tried out last week worked well. But the more difficult to manage ...
15:04:08 [annika]
kerstin: Would prefer to use another system.

15:11:01 [annika]

15:11:45 [annika]

15:15:15 [annika]

15:16:21 [annika]
simon: The other suggested topics can't be presented because the people are not on the call.
15:16:53 [annika]
... Remember that the RDWG runs out in June. Suggestion to select and run two more topics soon.

15:18:21 [sloandr]

15:19:31 [annika]
dave: agree with shawn. More time in between also avoids confusion between the two topics.
15:19:55 [kerstin_m]

... timing in the year and month also help to distiguish the symposia.
15:20:10 [markel]

15:20:41 [annika]
simon: suggest to have three symposia: in April, May and June.
15:20:57 [markel]

15:22:15 [annika]
