preview agenda

two user group findings to discuss add and aging/dementia

ADD/ADHD discussion

BJ: needs help with identifying, filling in spaces on the persona and scenarios
... requesting folks to share
... new or specific technologies would be help
... some items from Georgia tech looks promising
... using the wiki as a whiteboard

<Barry_Johnson> Wiki Gap Analysis: http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Gap_Analysis

BJ: requesting folks to review Gap analysis page and help fill in blanks

<Barry_Johnson> https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Gap_Analysis/ADHD

BJ: send email or post contributions

<Barry_Johnson> Ideas thoughts and suggestions - barry.johnson@deque.com

Debbie: how the challenges impact Web usage

BJ: most of the research is in how to use tools to assist people vs how they interact with Web, impact of Web usage
... how to use ipad, tablet, or smartphone to help people track appt, time activities so not to spend too much time on one item and how reminder apps and to-do list help focus attention
... if anyone has thoughts on personas where they found how interacting with Web changes would be helpful
... continue to fill in spaces as more information is obtained

Debbie: call for suggestions
... trying to find online user groups where we could as people what frustrations they may have bc of their disability

BJ: some of the ADHD user groups are parents looking for solutions for their kids especially school and kids

Debbie: family members may be able to give feedback not just users

BJ: has identified a few adults who have identify with this issue to interview

Aging and dementia

SK: request to postpone topic
... team is working on initial feedback given by Lisa

Debbie: looking at which groups will be on topic for next time
... Aging and Dementia plans to be ready for next week


John: autism started

<Barry_Johnson> https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Gap_Analysis/autism

John: description quoted CDC. Is it ok to quote a source?
... how we define autism and discuss prevalance - both are contested issues in community
... instead of our words they are from a source
... feedback requested is it ok to quote and how to deal with community contested points

BJ: also went to CDC definition
... agrees using the source is best approach
... using a authoritative body

<allanj> +1

John: looking not to be US centric and trying to include other information in the world

BJ: looking for CDC equivalents in Europe and Asia

John: please send resources for other than US bodies to list serve

Debbie: should we separate discussions form children and adults?
... adults may have different scenarios than children

BJ: planning to use that in personas and characteristic broken down by age groups
... ADHD, autism, dementia as you change over time
... age groups as you get more literate and learn more skills as to how you use the technology differently

Debbie: this is something we should keep in mind as we go forward

BJ: coping skills change as a person ages with a disability
