Lisa's presentation (withIBM) showed how checkpoints can be made easily
17:06:10 [Lisa_Seeman]
Marisa DeMeglio
17:07:09 [Mike_Pluke]
Code Repo and Codesprint attended. Marissa DeMeglio made a code injection (thing) that only needs one page of mappings for a whole site
17:07:58 [Mike_Pluke]
Jamie and Lisa put semantics into homepage
17:08:38 [Mike_Pluke]
Allows a URI for a template to be added - and they will play around with this going forward
17:08:56 [Mike_Pluke]
Jamie found it "the coolest thing ever"
17:10:19 [Mike_Pluke]
Microsoft people might put someone into Task Force. They have powerful language proofing tools into new Office updates - very compatible with plain language.
17:10:41 [Mike_Pluke]
Is available as an API as well as integrated into Office software
17:12:27 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa got to talk to proofing and cloud people from Microsoft. Interested to cognitive-friendly development environment for cloud developers?

Autism Speaks
17:31:56 [Thaddeus]
but I dont have a contact there
17:32:17 [Jan]
I have a contact at the Learning Disabilities Association in the United States
17:33:13 [Mike_Pluke]
I have a contact who has developed software related to support for people with autism.
17:34:31 [Mike_Pluke]
Ask reviewers to comment on what is there and say what is missing
17:34:59 [Jim_S]
I work with some dementia groups - I could contact their web developers to get round the COGA issues in using the material
17:35:38 [JohnRochford]
Mike is such a diplomat.
17:35:52 [Jan]
I think we need to consider reaching out to other disability organizations with respect to personalization.
17:37:18 [Thaddeus]
I can make an announcement at the Bay Area Accessibility Meetup Group
17:37:33 [Jan]
+1 to Google Document
17:38:07 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa will do a Google doc that lists who we have contacted
17:38:32 [Lisa_Seeman]
action: lisa to add google doc to aprouch people
17:38:32 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-201 - Add google doc to aprouch people [on Lisa Seeman-Kestenbaum - due 2017-03-13].
17:38:58 [Mike_Pluke]
Propose a way that what we ask them and how we want people to respond
17:41:33 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa will add into the Google doc a draft of some guidance that we can give reviewers e.g. where to find a list of new SC and which of these were COGA-specific
17:43:14 [Mike_Pluke]
Where we go to from here. Whether to develop new Issue Papers and work on emotional issues?
17:43:42 [Lisa_Seeman]
zakim, next items
17:43:42 [Zakim]
I don't understand 'next items', Lisa_Seeman
17:43:44 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa suggests the idea of working on 2 (or max 3) SCs per week in the call
17:43:56 [Jim_S]
+1 to looking at a couple of SC a week
17:44:04 [kirkwood]
17:44:11 [Mike_Pluke]
17:44:24 [Jim_S]
+1 to team discussion
17:44:35 [Lisa_Seeman]
17:45:36 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa suggests looking at "Clear controls" and "Authentication"
17:45:43 [Lisa_Seeman]
suggets we focuss this week on clear controls and authentification
17:45:45 [Jan]
+1 to authentication as a high priority
17:48:29 [Jim_S]
Should we run the SC through this working group before sending it out to the list?
17:48:30 [Mike_Pluke]
Lisa suggest doing a Doodle poll for suitable times for co-ordination calls on the selected SCs
17:49:15 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael has suggested waiting until the issue is addressed at the working group level - will be an issue in this week's meeting
17:49:18 [Jim_S]
Sorry I meant COGA taskforce first
17:53:23 [Mike_Pluke]
Michael suggests that official working group teleconference is the better way to do things rather than additional COGA calls. it will get more attention from busy people.

Amazon might be interested in joining in on the Bots Issue Paper (someone from the Alexa team)
17:56:22 [Mike_Pluke]
John suggests LV Task Force may be interested in the (Alexa-like) Bots
17:58:19 [Mike_Pluke]
Issues such as non-voice alternative for voice operated bots should be in any related SCs
18:00:21 [Mike_Pluke]
Also ask people involved in developing assistive technologies to review the draft
18:01:06 [Mike_Pluke]
