... different application for different parts of the service
14:38:02 [jeanne]
jeanne has joined #matf
14:38:04 [AWK]
... and received feedback
14:38:17 [AWK]
... so they formed task forces to address
14:38:20 [chunming]
present+ chunming
14:38:21 [patrick_h_lauke]
Scribe: AWK
14:38:54 [AWK]
Objective: share implementation practices from Alibaba
14:39:17 [AWK]
blind users use screen readers to navigate, on PC and mobile devices
14:39:30 [AWK]
presentation will share difficulties shared with team
14:39:45 [AWK]
use case 1: picture - no description
14:39:59 [AWK]
solution: alt attribute on img elements
14:40:46 [chunming]
present+ kepeng, IanPouncey, jeanne, patrick_h_lauke, AWK, QingAn
14:41:53 [AWK]
case 2: verification code (CAPTCHA)
14:42:02 [patrick_h_lauke]
AWK: as the slide contains HTML, are your apps native or hybrid (e.g. using phonegap)
14:42:11 [AWK]
screen reader users can't read it
14:42:39 [AWK]
solution: voice verification or SMS code verification
14:43:51 [AWK]
AWK: Which was better received?
14:44:02 [AWK]
KL: Not completely sure, think Voice
14:44:11 [AWK]
Case 3: Floating page
14:44:22 [QingAn_]
QingAn_ has joined #matf
14:44:27 [AWK]
focus issues, closing issues
14:44:38 [QingAn_]
QingAn_ has left #MATF
14:44:41 [AWK]
solution: ensure dialog is focused and able to be closed
14:44:49 [AWK]
case 4: focus
14:45:01 [AWK]
no focus on page, user can't select
14:45:11 [AWK]
for each element, ensure focus with attribute
14:45:15 [AWK]
case 5: controls
14:45:29 [AWK]
missing labels
14:45:37 [AWK]
solution: add labels
14:46:58 [AWK]
case 6: missing labels
14:47:06 [AWK]
solution: use for attribute
14:47:17 [AWK]
Gap analysis
14:47:30 [AWK]
In WCAG there is a need for more details
14:47:35 [AWK]
more techniques!
14:47:46 [AWK]
Next steps
14:47:59 [AWK]
detailed drafts will be submitted to document the issues and practices
14:48:44 [AWK]
AWK: These are the common issues, were there more
14:49:59 [patrick_h_lauke]
AWK: now that you've addressed things as per your slides, do you still have issues that users are reporting?
14:50:26 [chunming]
14:50:28 [AWK]
KL: yes, some issues addressed but there were more
14:51:12 [AWK]
chunming: interested in the MATF
14:51:58 [AWK]
... talked with Judy Brewer, told that we are increasing mobile guidance in WCAG
14:52:44 [AWK]
... we may like to participate in effort
14:53:38 [AWK]
PL: Issues seem to be largely in WCAG 2.0
14:53:48 [AWK]
PL: seems to be following WCAG best practices well
14:55:06 [AWK]
AWK: the SMS integration is a solution that is more mobile focused but increasingly available on desktop also
14:55:29 [jeanne]
14:55:57 [AWK]
IP: WCAG doesn't specifically speak to things like the dialog issue mentioned
14:56:11 [AWK]
(floating page)
14:56:59 [patrick_h_lauke]
Patrick: here's some of the work we're doing specifically in the "Mobile" Accessibility Taskforce, particularly focused on different input modalitites
14:58:05 [AWK]
AWK: speaks to a need for more techniques
14:58:21 [QingAn]
QingAn has joined #matf
14:58:46 [AWK]
PL: (sharing gist of current work of MATF)
14:59:45 [AWK]
PL: moving to a situation where there are many modalities that need to be covered for input
15:00:11 [AWK]
PL: currently in WCAG we have keyboard-specific items, but not touch
15:02:07 [AWK]
PL: or pointer devices
15:02:28 [AWK]
... also looking to address size of targets
15:02:37 [AWK]
to ensure that they aren't too small
15:03:26 [AWK]
... avoiding accidental activation also
15:03:47 [AWK]
... and when running a keyboard and assistive technologies
15:04:35 [AWK]
..input independence is also needed - can't rely on just one way to interact
15:05:47 [AWK]
... for apps running in a closed environment (e.g. kiosk/ATM) may not need to support a keyboard if there is no way to add a keyboard
15:06:29 [AWK]
.. The MATF also has SC proposals related to voice interaction
15:07:07 [AWK]
...And related to device sensors
15:09:05 [AWK]
... Some applications may rely on device sensors exclusively in some situations (e.g. a marble game where tilting the device is the game)
15:11:15 [AWK]
Non-interference with assistive technologies is the final SC being proposed.
15:11:32 [AWK]
IP: question: is that AT-specific?
15:12:17 [AWK]
Section 508 has criteria that says to not interfere with user system settings
15:12:34 [AWK]
PL: builds on that idea a bit
15:13:25 [AWK]
KL: question b/c mobile devices don't have keyboards - how to handle?
15:13:51 [AWK]
PL: can connect a keyboard via bluetooth and use it
15:14:58 [chunming]
rrsagent, draft minutes
15:14:58 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate chunming
15:15:19 [chunming]
rrsagent, make log public
15:17:54 [AWK]
AWK: WCAG covers a lot of what you need to do for mobile device support, but more is needed and that is why we have the task force and the WCAG 2.1 effort
15:19:03 [AWK]
PL: there are also issues for users who use mobile OS zoom features - some issues can occur when using mobile zoom and trying to pinch and zoom
15:20:17 [AWK]
KL: which issues affect users who are blind or VI?
15:20:41 [AWK]
PL: We don't generally differentiate since the success criteria impact more than one user type each
15:21:35 [AWK]
JS: China has very active blind user group
15:23:17 [jcraig]
jcraig has joined #matf
15:23:34 [patrick_h_lauke]
AWK: reiterating that with SCs we try to not differentiate by user group/disability
15:24:21 [jcraig]
rrsagent, make minutes
15:24:21 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate jcraig
15:24:24 [patrick_h_lauke]
even if an SC may initially look/sound like it's only targeted at a particular disability, it has benefits well beyond those
15:24:42 [AWK]
KL: why have a LVTF?
15:25:09 [patrick_h_lauke]
KL: and why not a blind user TF specifically
15:25:39 [patrick_h_lauke]
AWK: there was feeling from specifically LV users that felt WCAG 2.0 doesn't address very particular problems of LV
15:25:53 [patrick_h_lauke]
which is why there is a user group/disability specific TF
15:26:43 [patrick_h_lauke]
jcraig yeah sorry it's not on the grid for some reason
15:26:50 [patrick_h_lauke]
in 1.03 if you still want to pop in
15:28:45 [AWK]
KL ;question about keyboard trap
15:28:50 [AWK]
PL: explained
15:29:06 [AWK]
...that keybaord trap and focus trap are the same issue
15:29:16 [AWK]
15:29:31 [AWK]
KL: how to contribute?
15:29:43 [AWK]
... will go back to teams for more information
15:32:45 [AWK]
AWK: everyone's help is needed! Welcome to join the group...
