Scribe: Jim Allan
JG: want to document implementation plans for most recent draft
JA: have developed a table for input of implementation reviews, inputting Opera information
JG: want documentation. going through checkpoints.
MQ for speech implementation, I was looking at HPR. Is IBM reviewing their document.
JG: need to look for techniques
MQ ok will do it
JG: cp 1.1 - any browser for all functionalities through keyboard
TL: IE yes except text selection.
JG: IE plus assistive tech will do text selection. send details to the list
JG: cp 1.2 - event handlers that can be activated through keyboard in win2000 with IE and narrator - have mouse in mouse out, combine with mouse keys for clicking (a possible solution) accessible browser project- navigate to event handlers, get a list and activate event (UIUC accessible browser project.
JG: cp 1.3
TL: IE - yes. media player ??, they are improving
JG: cp 2.1 use rendering in specs. html 4 is weak
GR: opera follows html spec for no script and error recovery. if script does not execute then display "no script". broken script, turn scripts off,
JG: this is a difficult checkpoint. question - abbreviation or acronym. html doesn't say what to do with it. Keep in DOM
GR: yes, in DOM, then UA or at can
JG: what about longdesc.
GR: will look into it.
TL: 2.1 reviewing list. IE, first DOM will reflect what is authored, will hand off non-native to plugin, will do html, xml, most of the text stuff. IE does not support longdesc. planning for next version. trying to
MQ webspeak would follow longdesc and open an new browser instance. needed improvement.
JG: only thing html 4.0 spec says. accessing longdesc must be different from accessing href
GR: HPR supports longdesc. treats it like an href. alerts user for activation.
TL: parts of html 4 that are not implemented. support html 3.2 and css1 and parts of dom.
JG: anticipate DOM for
JA:va script - text note
TL: don't know
JG: any browser html 4 compliant
JA: Netscape 6 ???
Action TL: css 1 compliance of IE
JG: some will change as html and css are modularized. don't know how this will affect checkpoints and compliance. xhtml basic.
JG: need to know about html version compliance for browsers.
JG: is realmedia SMIL 1 compliant.
GR: what about lpplayer,
JA: supports SMIL as far
check with issound for SMIL compliance -
JG: 2.2 view of text source. - yes for nearly all
JG: 2.3 global configuration content access, conditional content
JG: what about object
GR: Netscape 6 has some support, if you use map to render text it renders nothing
JG: 4.75 will render it.
GR: testing pages for guidelines
JG: may have use ulist and div
MQ webspeak may do this, list items, no script, no frames, alt
JG: display alt, alternative content in object and image, captions, no script, no frames,
JA: no switch for captions in smile
JG: opera - no script, no frames (if no frame information included, will not generate a plac
EHolder - no repair strategy), image, no longdesc.
JG: - alt for image, ti
TL:e through tool tip. no frames.
TL: don't know if IE will display no script.
GR: no frame only to be rendered if non support for frames (quotes from spec)
JA: IE seems to work, Netscape
action JA: test object in opera
GR: iframe should be included. did pages for testing that are archived somewhere. wai/gl/test has test pages for browsers, assistive tech, user expectations, functionalities. access key test pages, div etc.
JG: may frame, iframe, longdesc, alt, no-script, object, no-frames no frame - opera and lynx object - Netscape no-script - lynx, opera,
action DP: support for no-script HPR
action GR: support for no-script lynx longdesc - webspeak, HPR
JG: 2.4 pausing
JA: opera says they do
JA: don't know.
action JG: check with opera how they comply with 2.4
JG: 2.5 caption. configuration of caption real does - has a switch window media does quick time does, using pro version can turn on-off captions (by deleting captions?)
EH don't know of any. magpie is a creation engine. there is information that serves role of transcript, but the player does not know what it is.
JG: 2.6 synchronization real yes windows media yes
JG: 2.7 repair text - alt text, does anyone generate IE if no alt then IE show href lynx - file name, nothing, or place holder text IE with
JA:ws - similar to lynx, configurable (
GR: may revise previous posting about JFW configuration)
MQ HPR does something. 2.8 configuration - generate repair text - if alt null IE render plac
EH: older or not. IE with JFW - JFW says nothing, can configure to speak images without alt. 2.9 configure - render all conditional content. ??? discussion about what checkpoint means. about SMIL and language tracks.
EH in previous version of documents, automating pulling up of content out of context.
GR: if no frame has longdesc, provide some step through functionality. more for querying to ask for selected items from a list of alternative information to display.
JA: selecting caption and language tracks from a movie with 3 languages of each.
GR: in cases where you need to generate repair text, it is a way to find repair text.
JG: someone want to write technique
action GR: write different markup (list of elements) that 2.9 applies to, for clarification.
JA: I am confused 2.10 configuration to not render content and inform user. if you don't support a font for a language, browser would not render language but render place holder. IE prompt to get different language, or auto download, or do nothing,
GR: technique-need demarcation for unrendered text should be in same character set declared for page.
TL: css conformance for windows xp, if strict mode declared, then css1 supported
JG: organize a face to face in July or later, topic--conformance test suites for developers, purpose for f2f try to bring in developers to develop test suites and recruiting. at this point in guidelines need to not change text but get implementation (must be satisfied by 2 independent implementations). need this to move to candidate recommendation. not sure where yet.
GR: sent uri for test documents. there is email@example.com list. see W3 QA (quality assurance) for more info. working on gl pages with UA in mind.
JG: AOL working with Henter-Joyce, need to develop special api and accessibility api because they do not meet their needs.
TL: do not know about this. am very interested.
JG: messaged Scott Totman (?) about this. may have both ST and
TL: on call in two weeks to discuss.
DP: adobe and AOL using MSAA and inte
GR:ating it in their suites.
TL: working with adobe to get MSAA on track.
JG: AOL ask for relief from using standard API. concerned about proprietary API for assistive technology. want developer and at people to use standard.
TL: IE 6 has beefed up DOM and MSAA support, round tripping to find either place. closing hole as we find them.
GR: lynx supports no-script renders it inline.
