changing states to changes
15:24:31 [shadi]
[[+1 to not using techie jargon like "page state"]]
15:24:35 [Kathy]
Eric: what do people think about changing change state to changes
15:24:49 [Zakim]
15:25:09 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:25:15 [Kathy]
Eric: should we rewrite this
15:25:16 [Kathy]
15:25:23 [Zakim]
15:26:18 [Kathy]
Shadi: agrees with Peter. We need to rewrite this section
15:26:35 [Kathy]
Eric: next discussion DoC_ID_37 - Automatic Evaluation thoughts
15:27:23 [Kathy]
Eric: we did add some information on automation. Some comments on using just automation but that is not enough
15:27:35 [korn]
15:27:54 [Kathy]
Eric: different proposal on where we can add this information - reporting
15:28:14 [Kathy]
Peter: 17% of WCAG 2.0 is automateable
15:28:46 [korn]
15:28:47 [Kathy]
15:29:06 [Kathy]
Peter: need to also think about web app
15:29:16 [Kathy]
Eric: no one suggested adding it as another step
15:29:34 [Kathy]
Peter: we can state that is may be a component with the limitations that....
15:29:45 [Kathy]
ack me
15:30:05 [Zakim]
15:30:27 [Kathy]
Kathy: limitations with the tools for web apps
15:30:55 [Kathy]
Eric: will come up with a text proposal within the document
15:31:26 [Kathy]
Eric: does anyone think this needs to be a separate step
15:31:40 [Kathy]
Peter: maybe an optional step with the limitations stated
15:32:00 [Kathy]
Eric: should it be in the reporting section
15:32:02 [shadi]
15:32:10 [shadi]
ack me
15:32:10 [Kathy]
Peter: yes, should be in reporting section
15:34:01 [Kathy]
Shadi: on the fence; limitation of tools is so big. I like the idea as an optional step. We didn't forget about tools but that we are stating the limitation. It is not a required step
15:34:12 [Kathy]
Shadi: we can clearly message as a supporting step
15:35:09 [Kathy]
Shadi: The advice before was old when it there was more static pages from WCAG 1.0 days
15:35:25 [Kathy]
Shadi: it needs to be updated
15:35:59 [korn]
15:36:19 [Kathy]
Tim: consulting on a project, they think that the use of automated tools is sufficient. So it is important to note that it is not sufficient
15:36:50 [Kathy]
Shadi: if it is a separate step then we can explain the role of tools and we can answer the questions about how it could fit in
15:37:03 [shadi]
15:37:07 [Kathy]
Tim: It needs to be consistent across WAI on the use of tools
15:37:38 [Kathy]
Peter: we should go to some length about tools in the explanation within the document
15:38:09 [Kathy]
Peter: automated tools alone will not get the results needed
15:38:14 [shadi]
ack me
15:38:15 [korn]
15:38:16 [shadi]
15:39:10 [Kathy]
Shadi: Tim we can follow up separately. The document for selecting tools needs to be updated. These tools are useful. David estimated 15% could be automated for failure
15:39:36 [Kathy]
Shadi: if we talk about conformance then this percentage goes down
15:39:54 [Kathy]
Shadi: automated tools cover small portion
15:39:57 [korn]
15:40:49 [Kathy]
Shadi: make sure that the shed false light; tools are important. The are just a part or component
15:40:53 [shadi]
zakim, mute me
15:40:53 [Zakim]
Shadi should now be muted
15:41:24 [Kathy]
Peter: in addition to automated tools. Tools that are no automated are also useful
15:41:48 [Kathy]
Peter: we need to make the clarification on automated tools vs tool assisted evaluation
15:41:52 [shadi]
ack me
15:42:00 [shadi]
15:42:18 [shadi]
ack me
15:42:59 [Kathy]
Shadi: agree; the document selecting tools has some of that information
15:43:01 [Kathy]
15:43:14 [Kathy]
Shadi: we want to describe how it fits in the process
15:43:18 [korn]
15:43:22 [Kathy]
ack me
15:44:14 [Kathy]
Kathy: there are also reporting tools. We should include all three
15:44:58 [Kathy]
Eric: I have the input for the new editor draft. I will add a step.
15:45:04 [Kathy]
Eric: where does it go?
15:45:28 [Kathy]
Eric: maybe audit the selected sample
15:45:39 [Kathy]
15:45:43 [Kathy]
ack me
15:45:43 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:46:08 [MartijnHoutepen]
ack me
15:46:19 [Kathy]
Kathy: maybe not the last step. Should be in the order that you would conduct the review
15:46:41 [Kathy]
Martin: need to rewrite the section and think about where it goes
15:47:08 [MartijnHoutepen]
zakim, mute me
15:47:08 [Zakim]
MartijnHoutepen should now be muted
15:47:35 [Kathy]
Eric: I will make a proposal

15:48:18 [Liz]
15:48:23 [Kathy]
Eric: anything else on this one?
15:48:34 [Kathy]
Eric: let's move on to DoC_ID_49 - Extend target with more SC
15:48:40 [ericvelleman]
15:48:56 [Kathy]
Topic: Input for one page web applications
15:49:12 [Kathy]
Are one page web applications covered sufficiently in the current version of the WCAG-EM? If you think not, where should we add this?
15:49:14 [korn]
15:49:17 [korn]
15:49:36 [Kathy]
Eric: saw a lot of discussion on this. We want to add the proposal to the next draft
15:49:59 [Kathy]
Peter: testing web application is a fundamentally different process. The approach, documentation will be different
15:50:18 [Kathy]
Peter: not sure if this is best to have a separate steps
15:50:32 [korn]
15:50:46 [Kathy]
Eric: would you say this is not sufficient for web apps
15:50:57 [Kathy]
Peter: yes, this not sufficient yet
15:51:21 [Kathy]
Eric: Maybe we should have more discussion on this topic
15:51:58 [Kathy]
Peter: we should point people to where we are talking about web applications
15:52:01 [Kathy]
15:53:22 [ericvelleman]
15:53:22 [Kathy]
Eric: we will point to the sections with web app
15:53:35 [Kathy]
Kathy: also ask about what is missing
15:53:48 [Kathy]
Eric: we are at the end of the call; are there any other issues
15:53:56 [Kathy]
Eric: Very Merry Christmas
15:54:22 [Kathy]
