lisa: the gap analysis is looking at what we have in web accessibility for cognitive, what we'd like to have, and what's missing
16:14:31 [ayelet]
lisa: the methodology is to look at the problems, see if we have a solution, check how credible and helpful it is, see if we have support in w3c standards.

lisa: an example for a well supported feature is the session timeout time.
16:18:28 [ayelet]
lisa: success criteria that needs to be higher
16:19:30 [ayelet]
lisa: format - the easiest is to have it in a table. However, it may be better in a category format as it feeds straight in to the road map

John: why couuldn't we talk first about the commonalities of all cognitive disabilities and afterwards unique disabilities?
16:23:28 [ayelet]
Lisa: If we find it's needed we could do that. However, they seem to be about adaptation except for a few exceptions.

Created ACTION-86 - Explain the second example in the methodolgy [on Lisa Seeman - due 2015-04-20].
16:29:18 [ayelet]
Lisa: are people ok with the research being backed up by confidence and not only research?
16:30:38 [ayelet]
Lisa: some things are so clear that the group has consensus
16:30:47 [Lisa_Seeman]
group agrees
16:30:49 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:31:25 [neilmilliken]
Yes i have seen it
16:31:30 [ayelet]

WCAG Cognitive Extension
16:31:48 [maryjom]
I have seen it too.
16:32:05 [JohnRochford]
I have not.
16:32:51 [ayelet]
Lisa: On the one hand they've put COGA extensions as one of their deliverables, on the other hand the deadline is November 2015
16:34:00 [ayelet]
Lisa: we should touch base about what they need to have in the extension which we could deliver on time
16:34:00 [maryjom]
16:34:15 [Mike_Pluke]
16:35:18 [slee]
16:35:30 [ayelet]
Lisa: the charter is a 3 year charter, and we should give an extension by November, and give a more ambitious proposal for an extension 3 years later
16:36:03 [ayelet]
Lisa: on the other hand we would have until October 2017 to build the technology
16:36:21 [slee]
Lisa_Seeman: Exciting. I have to go. From that table we have to do an understanding guide as well.
16:37:04 [Zakim]

16:39:53 [maryjom]
The WCAG charter has been changed for the following reasons: First they want WCAG 2.0 to remain stable for worldwide policy makers to incorporate into their standards.

Second to have normative extensions to cover more comprehensive requirements for various disability types.
16:41:31 [maryjom]
Cognitive requirements can be published under such an extension.
16:41:47 [Lisa_Seeman]
ack ryl
16:41:52 [ayelet]
Lisa: There's a playoff of to what extent we want to remain an extension, and to what extent we want to get adopted
16:43:52 [ayelet]
Katie: believes legislation might decide to have different conformance level requirements for WCAG and for the extensions
16:44:16 [Lisa_Seeman]
1. Ensure that requirements may be applied across technologies
16:44:17 [Lisa_Seeman]
2. Ensure that the conformance requirements are clear
16:44:19 [Lisa_Seeman]
3. Design deliverables with ease of use in mind
16:44:21 [Lisa_Seeman]
4. Write to a more diverse audience
16:44:22 [Lisa_Seeman]
5. Clearly identify who benefits from accessible content
16:44:24 [Lisa_Seeman]
6. Ensure that the revision is "backwards and forward compatible"
16:44:30 [Lisa_Seeman]
16:46:03 [ayelet]
Lisa: for 2, if you have 10 accessibility experts in the room, 9/10 need to agree
16:46:57 [ayelet]
Lisa: whether or not things conform

16:50:05 [ayelet]

16:52:23 [ayelet]
Lisa: How important does the group feel is moving to an editors' draft, even though github supports it?
16:53:31 [ayelet]
* even though github supports the techniques etc

Janina: The w3
16:53:54 [Zakim]
16:54:10 [Ryladog]
Have to drop early sorry
16:54:39 [Mike_Pluke]
16:54:43 [ayelet]
* Janina: the w3 trusts the expertise of the group's members, and views it as evidence enough
16:55:16 [Lisa_Seeman]
ack mi
16:55:30 [ayelet]
Lisa: in the past evidence was requested
16:56:06 [Lisa_Seeman]
Criteria by which we decide what research to accept:Due to practical constraints most research will simply be cited and not examined for credibility. However the following cases will rely on task force consensuses before inclusion:
16:56:08 [Lisa_Seeman]
Commercial research that implies the use of a specific proprietary product will be examined for scientific credibility before being included
16:56:09 [Lisa_Seeman]
Research where the task force is aware of contradictory evidence (including anecdotal) will be examined for scientific credibility before being included.

16:56:32 [ayelet]
Janina: consensus of the group usually enough, evidence could be added later

16:57:11 [MichaelC]
MichaelC has changed the topic to: 2642
16:57:13 [Zakim]
16:57:18 [ayelet]
Mike: always preferable to back it up with research. however, the lack of it shouldn't limit us
16:57:43 [Zakim]

16:59:09 [Lisa_Seeman]
if we dont have reaserch we need a very high confidence level
