1. Introduction

This survey comes from the comment responses spreadsheet that Jim created to allow us to strategically and efficiently address the comments we received on the 23 May 2013 working draft.

Jim organized the comments into the appropriate success criteria or guidelines, and then Jim and Jeanne sorted the comments into categories: editorial, ready for survey, and needs proposal. Kim and Jeanne will integrate the editorial comments. This survey is the first pass of comment suggestions that were simple enough to put directly into a survey. There are 16 comments in this survey.

In addition to completing this survey, please look at the comment responses spreadsheet and search for the comments that "[need proposal]" and start drafting language that we can put into a future survey.

Figuring out a way to efficiently handle our comments will be very helpful in expediting our Last Call comments. Your suggestions on ways to further expedite this procedure will be welcome.

2. JR1 on 1.1.1

Comment

Is the phrase "For any content element " necessary? ...BTW: did the group ever look at this proposal (of mine)?: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-ua/2011AprJun/0086.html

Existing

1.1.1 Render Alternative Content: For any content element, the user can choose to render any types of recognized alternative content that are present. (Level A)

Note: It is recommended that the user agent allow the user to choose whether the alternative content replaces or supplements the original content element.

Proposed

1.1.1 Default Rendering of Alternative Content (Minimum): For each type of non-text content, the user can specify a type of alternative content that, if present, will be rendered by default. (Level A)

Kimberly Patch Neutral, will accept consensus of the group
Simon Harper Agree with the proposal
Jim Allan Agree with the proposal
Greg Lowney Disagree with the proposal Here are comments on each of the five paragraphs in Jan's proposal:

> 1.1.1 Default Rendering of Alternative Content (Minimum): For each type of non-text content, the user can specify a type of alternative content that, if present, will be rendered by default,. (Level A)

GCL: Rather than “each type of non-text content”, it should be “each type of content that can can have alternative content”. For example, it should cover replacing abbreviations with their expansions.

> Note: Alternative content may be rendered together with the original non-text content (e.g., turning video caption track on) or may replace the original content (e.g., video with extended audio description replacing original video).

GCL: I don’t agree with removing the recommendation that the user be allowed to choose the behavior.

> 1.1.2 Indicate Unrendered Alternative Content: The user can specify that indicators be displayed when unrendered alternative content is present for rendered content. (Level A)

GCL: As usual, I would prefer to require that indicators be displayed “with” or the content that has unrendered alternative content, because I don’t consider it sufficient to have a flag that just tells the user there’s at least one element with alternative content somewhere in this document, or to go further and bury that information in a dialog box.

GCL: Would you then remove this from 1.3.1 (Highlight Items)?

> 1.1.3 Render Alternative Content: The user can choose to render any types of alternative content that are present. (Level A)

GCL: This seems to be replacing the old 1.1.1, which was specifically one a single element, but the proposed wording is unclear about whether it’s talking about applying this to a single element or all elements of a given class. Also, we might want to tighten up both wording to specifically require presenting at least one type of alternative content at a time, to avoid the interpretation that it’s required that the user be able to choose “any (set of) types” to display at once. If you don’t want “For any content element” at the beginning, how about something like “The user can choose to render any type of alternative content that are present for a content element.”

GCL: In this SC, the term “content element” should link to a definition that explicitly refers to a single element in the document, not to a *type* of element; the current definition of “element” explicitly says it can mean either one, which makes it inappropriate for this SC.

> 1.1.4 Default Rendering of Alternative Content (Enhanced): For each type of non-text content, the user can specify the cascade in which to render different types of alternative content, in case preferred types are not present. (Level AA)

GCL: Rather than “each type of non-text content”, it should be “each type of content that can can have alternative content”. For example, it should cover replacing abbreviations with their expansions.
Eric Hansen Agree with the proposal The proposal is a considerable improvement. I would like to see, though, the taxonomy of non-text content types and alternative content types.

Greg Lowney Suggest the following changes to the proposal It looks like this guideline went through a lot of changes over time, and some were confused. Originally "Global Volume" was about respecting operating environment mechanisms, and there was also an SC about separate volume controls for recognized speech and non-speech tracks. I assume we removed the former because we’re willing to assume assumed that any well-behaved user agent will be forced to respect platform volume settings. Now we have just one SC with the same old title but new content, which don’t match. I think it’s fine to reduce the priority of the current 1.5.1, but the title should be changed to something more appropriate such as "Volume of individual tracks" or "Track volume." Because we’d no longer have any Level A SC about adjusting volume, I also suggest renaming it to 1.5.2 and inserting a new SC, "1.5.1 Volume Control: The user can adjust the volume of all audio played, relative to the global volume level set through *operating environment* mechanisms. (Level A)" I think it’s quite reasonable for any media player to provide at minimum one volume control for the media it’s playing, and so widely implemented as to be expected by users, and entirely necessary for users who need to adjust their media volume without affecting the volume of their synthesized speech, etc.
Eric Hansen Agree with the proposal

Comment

Maybe highlighting customization part should be AA?

Existing

Greg Lowney Neutral, will accept consensus of the group It is sad and disappointing if 1.8.1 is important enough to require at Level A, but still okay for it to be invisible to many people. There are products that highlight frames with a thin, dotted rectangle which is difficult for people with average vision to detect, and extremely difficult for people with even moderately impaired vision. I can understand if it’s considered too much work for too many products to require this to be customized, but it will definitely make this far less beneficial.
Eric Hansen Suggest the following changes to the proposal Agree except that I suggest deleting the phrase "The viewport can include nested viewports and containers." It is not a requirement and therefore does not belong in an SC statement.

5. JR10 on 1.8.3

JR10: Maybe AA? I'm concerned this might be read that each viewport needs to be configurable separately? Should it say top-level viewport?

Jim Allan Suggest the following changes to the proposal AA is ok. think this should not only be top level. If viewport (video, or iframe, etc.) is inside a top-level viewport it should be resizeable to size of containing viewport. everything else should reflow.

keep the original wording (we have vetted it numerous times) and make it AA.
this morphed from 4.9.9 (http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-UAAG20-20100617/)
Greg Lowney Disagree with the proposal The intent was not just for top-level viewports. For example, some browsers allow the user to resize text input boxes but that can be overridden in CSS by authors using resize:none. Similarly, many pages use iframe to create a separate viewport for the navigation links on the right-hand side, and this may be too narrow if the user enlarges the text.

Jim Allan Agree with the proposal current UA scale all content (including embedded viewports [iframe]).
it would be nice if you could only scale content in a given viewport, but not critical.
Greg Lowney Suggest the following changes to the proposal Agreed. It would be more useful if each viewport had independent control, but that is asking too much. (I hope there will not be any confusion--real or feigned--over whether content within nested viewports is considered to be "within [the] top level viewports".)

Is "the viewport" appropriate when the first line explicitly refers to "top level viewports" but the third line could be referring to a nested viewport? Should it instead say "so that content fits within the height or width of *its* viewport"?

However, there is a problem with the "Zoom out" portion. It consists of two clauses that could conflict, and it's not clear how such conflicts would be resolved. For example, what if reducing to 10% is not enough to let the content fit within the height or width of the viewport,then what? Is it saying that zoom has to go to 10% or the amount necessary to make the content fit, whichever size is smaller? Perhaps rephrase as "Zoom out: to 10% or less of the default size, or enough to let the content fit within the height or width of its viewport, whichever size is smaller."

Eric Hansen Suggest the following changes to the proposal Change seems reasonable. However:
Can we clarify the meaning of top-level viewport?
Also, for zoom out should it read:
"Zoom out: (a) to 10% or less of the default size AND (b)so the content fits within the height AND width of the viewport. (Level AA) "

7. JR13 on 1.8.12

Comment

JR13: usual wording is specify rather than "request". BTW all of the "specifies" make it sound like a lot of settings are required....could some be rewritten in the form: "When reflowable content in a graphical viewport is rescaled, it can be reflowed so that one dimension of the content fits within the height or width of the viewport."

Existing

1.8.12 Reflowing Zoom: The user can request that when reflowable content in a graphical viewport is rescaled, it is reflowed so that one dimension of the content fits within the height or width of the viewport. (Level AA)

Note: User agents are encouraged to allow users to override author instructions not to wrap content (e.g., nowrap).

Greg Lowney Disagree with the proposal What does "when it can be reflowed" mean? It would be extremely inconvenient if such reflowing could not be made automatic (e.g. if the user had to perform an explicit action on each element they want to reflow, or on each page after it is rendered). Other wording might be more acceptable.

My personal preference would also be to remove the Note, so that user agents would be required to allow overriding of nowrap and equivalent.
Eric Hansen Disagree with the proposal In general, I really like the direction of the changes.
However, I don't understand the meaning of:
"one dimension of the content fits within the height or width of the viewport. (Level A)"
Do we want require that all content fit within the viewport, then why not say:
"the content fits within the height and width of the viewport. (Level A)"

Greg Lowney Suggest the following changes to the proposal Would it read more easily if reversed, as in "The user can request notification when sequential navigation wraps at the beginning or end of a document, and can prevent such wrapping."?

Personally I’d prefer this and the equivalent for searching to be Level A, and strengthen them by requiring active, rather than passive notification. By that I mean putting a subtle cue in the status bar should not be considered sufficient notification. If you look at the fervent requests online for this feature you’ll see how passionately some users feel about the difficulty they experience because of its lack (e.g. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=279014, which is also noteworthy for demonstrating the incredibly self-centered attitude of some developers who feel that a behavior--in this case passive notification--is good enough for them, if someone else can’t get used to it it’s their own fault). Note that we have at least two implementations: Microsoft Word and Firefox with the Find Toolbar With Alert Box extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/find-toolbar-with-alert-box). This would conflict with the current definition of "notify", so I’d suggest rewording as "The user can request *active notification* when sequential navigation wraps at the beginning or end of a document, and can prevent such wrapping.", along with the definition of "active notification" as something like "notify, active notification, passive notification: To make the user aware of events or status changes. Notifications can occur within the user agent user interface (e.g. a status bar) or within the content display. Notifications may be passive, not requiring user acknowledgment, or they may be *active*, presented in the form of a prompt requesting a user response (e.g. a confirmation dialog)." We should also include an exemption for controls that follow the user interface standards of the platform (e.g. navigation in menus).
Eric Hansen Neutral, will accept consensus of the group I don't think that I understand the problem well enough to comment.

Greg Lowney Suggest the following changes to the proposal Neutral.

However, I think in the past I’ve mentioned that I’d prefer to scope this to acknowledge that it’s not always possible. For example, every UA would fail if given a page with 700 links, so we could acknowledge that with something like ", within the limitation imposed by the input methods (e.g. number of letter and number keys on the keyboard)".
Eric Hansen Suggest the following changes to the proposal When you refer to "move" do you mean "move the focus". Or is the difference. Otherwise I think I can accept the consensus of the group.

Jim Allan Neutral, will accept consensus of the group
Greg Lowney Suggest the following changes to the proposal Neutral on the proposed change.

However, while (Level AAA) was just wrong, saying (Level A - AA) or (Level A - AAA) is also problematic. It could break attempts to convert the guidelines into other formats or import them into databases, and will certainly complicate any attempt to sort or filter SC in other views. I don't believe there were any SC in the equivalent ISO or ANSI standards that didn't have one of the three standard priority levels. Thus I’d much prefer going back to separate SC for this.

However, it seems like the real accessibility issue would be providing an option to specify non-default handling of technologies that the user agent *does* support, rather than those it does not support. For example, if a browser can render PDF files but does so in a way which is not Level AA compliant, the user may want to specify that the user agent allow saving those PDF files to disk for viewing in another program.
Eric Hansen Suggest the following changes to the proposal Good question. Should this be an AA SC?
