Review Action Items


  1. Next meeting 4 April


  1. DOM requirements for UAAG 1.0 (AT developers invited)
    AT Developers invited:
    Central question is whether the W3C DOM should be the only way to satisfy communication between user agents and assistive technologies. We really need to understand what AT developers need from mainstream developers in terms of communication of web content information. We have long held the position of the W3C DOM, but there has not been much implementation of this technique by AT developers. Is this still the direction UAAG 1.0 needs to go or are other options needed to satisfy this requirement?
  2. Ian's proposals based on UAAG evaluations with developers
  3. XForms inclusion of UAAG requirements
