Where users are required to enter data to complete a transaction, a mechanism is provided to undo an action or correct an error and return to the place where they identified the error through at least one clearly labeled action without data loss, except when the data loss is part of the correction.
15:40:30 [chriscm]
Is anyone else getting digital noise???
15:40:53 [allanj]
RM: hope above addresses concerns
15:41:24 [allanj]
JOC: what is difference between current and your version.
15:41:50 [allanj]
rm: reduce the number of interactions. rest is clarification to questions
15:42:08 [Joshue108]
15:42:24 [allanj]
ls: scope for proposed is very limited.
15:43:09 [allanj]

15:44:33 [AWK]
Chair: Joshue
15:44:52 [allanj]
ls: no, if we go with proposed we loose too many use cases. perhaps can add an exception
15:45:03 [allanj]
rm: ok with adding exception
15:45:27 [allanj]
ls: explains exception,
15:46:05 [allanj]
joc: related to unwanted loss of data
15:46:17 [chriscm]
15:46:24 [alastairc]
The structure seems a bit odd, I think this says the same thing without as many clauses: "Undo: a user can go back steps in a process or repair information via a clearly labeled action without unwanted loss of data."
15:46:25 [allanj]
joc: adding exception to rm proposal.

15:51:26 [Greg]
q+ to say that "preserving data on return", "provide undo", and "auto-correct data" are independent features, so combining them into a single SC is needlessly complex and potentially confusing.

cm: implementation wise... a little UA dependent. want consistent functioning. there are callbacks for the BACK button.
15:53:39 [kirkwood]
The page would fail that doesn’t allow you to return to the previous filled out page, no?
15:53:46 [kirkwood]
+1 to chris
15:53:47 [allanj]
.... with new applications... BACK is now dependent on context in the application. app is in charge of doing something sensible with the back button... do something special or let the browser do its thing
15:54:11 [chriscm]
@kirkwood yes.
15:55:07 [Joshue108]
15:55:39 [allanj]
jw: when can user do an undo. the proposal does not address this scenario. there are some actions that are non-reversible. no provisions for which actions are reversible and which are not.
15:56:00 [allanj]
... should be restricted to current session (privacy, security issues)
15:56:17 [alastairc]
"except where an action has been confirmed by a second action..." or something like that?
15:56:35 [allanj]
... all irreversible issues are clearly identified by the author, help user make appropriate actions
15:56:45 [WayneD]
* That looks good.
15:57:24 [lisa]
15:57:30 [allanj]
jw: need to create list of criteria for what is and is not reversible, based on context. need definition and qualification
15:57:49 [Zakim]
Joshue108, you asked to be pinged at this time
15:57:59 [allanj]
joc: a scope issue. current wording is very broad. may need to restrict.
15:58:06 [WayneD]
Maybe the formal term 'commit' should be used.
15:58:14 [Joshue108]
15:58:22 [Joshue108]
zakim, close queue
15:58:22 [Zakim]
ok, Joshue108, the speaker queue is closed
15:58:27 [allanj]
ls: agree. could jw propose some wording.
15:59:00 [lisa]
15:59:03 [chriscm]
Can we define that in terms of "Changes of Context" which is wording used throughout WCAG already...?
15:59:04 [WayneD]
15:59:28 [allanj]
jw: this is hard. put it on the list to see what group comes up with. needs some work

16:00:58 [Joshue108]

16:01:00 [allanj]

ls: time is short. may have to leave a loophole
16:02:21 [Greg]
My comment was that I think "preserving data on return" is independent from "provide undo" and combining them into a single SC is needlessly complex and potentially confusing.
16:02:21 [Joshue108]
16:02:27 [allanj]
joc: ls explain difference between this and 3.3.6 error prevention.
16:02:43 [Greg]
Also, that my survey comments were submitted late so would require refresh to see.
16:03:33 [allanj]
ls: 3.3.6 is about submitting information. hit something by accident, how do I get back. that is not is 3.3.6

agendum 2. "Adapting Text:" taken up [from Joshue108]
16:03:48 [allanj]
16:03:51 [lisa]
also problem is if a submission is reversable
16:04:10 [lisa]
this offent includeds using small print return people which coga groups can not do
16:04:19 [lisa]
so 3.3.6 is not helpful for coga
16:04:28 [lisa]
even for finacial transaction

16:07:22 [laura]
The objective of this technique is to show how to provide a semantically identified icon font that does not disappear if a user overrides font-family via user stylesheet.
16:07:22 [allanj]
wd: we may loose ability to change fonts. need to put in the GL to ensure ability to change fonts
16:07:55 [allanj]
wd: combine font spacing, letter and word spacing and limit to 400%
16:08:02 [laura]
WCAG also has related failures: F87 F3
16:08:22 [alastairc]
It came up repeatedly, we still can't see how it is a content issue. See Laura's extensive comments.

ac: users can change fonts. don't need to add that ability. mitigate the impact of font changes.

LVTF RESOLUTION: "removing font family from Adapting Text SC text, because font width is very similar to letter spacing. we will address spacing and font family in the understanding document:
16:10:56 [allanj]
... impact of font change was incorporated into letter spacing, word spaicing
16:11:39 [allanj]
ac: not talking about font family, addressing the impact not a user agent issue.
16:11:46 [Greg]
q+ to support Wayne: I believe (and have stated before) that I believe the concerns about font family can be addressed, and that it is important, and that making sure pages remain usable is separate from the issue of whether user agents support overriding.

16:13:22 [allanj]
ac: there is nothing to limit the users ability to change font
16:14:21 [allanj]
ac: we are talking about buffering around characters. preventing the layout falling apart.
16:15:09 [allanj]
... give the author information about how to buffer the content to not break the layout.

wd: if you change the font, then you can read. this is not about size.

16:16:47 [WayneD]
I file a formal objection to adapting text based on omission of font family
16:16:51 [alastairc]
Wayne: Given that users can change font, what are you asking authors to do regarding fonts?
16:17:41 [laura]
Wayne had mentioned Web Components may be a blocker for overriding font family. So I left the editors note in the SC to give him time to research and test that aspect.

gl: concerns - units on line spacing.
16:18:54 [allanj]
... wording has reintroduced
16:18:57 [allanj]
This draft has brought back the problem that it inadvertently requires pages to provide their own means to override author styling, rather than merely requiring content to still work when the formatting is overridden at the client. Specifically, it says that if the technologies being used allow the user agent to "adapt style properties of text"--*ANY* style properties--then it has to support...
16:18:58 [allanj]
..."all" of those listed. It should instead only apply when the *corresponding* styles are adapted; that is, when the technologies (format and user agent) support adapting line spacing, then the content has to remain usable when line spacing is adapted. I still think my wording was cleaner, but understand the desire to start with more explicit scoping, so perhaps reword as "If the technologies bei
16:19:00 [allanj]
ng used allow the user agent to adapt any of the following style properties of text, then no loss of essential content or functionality occurs by adapting those properties, as follows: * if line spacing (leading) is adapted, it can be adapted to at least 1.5 lines without the loss of essential content or functionality * if letter spacing (tracking) is adapted, it can be adapted to at least...

Lisa: LVTF (mostly coming from me) didn't want to add in a layout-level change, it takes the complexity of the testing up a level.
16:24:58 [allanj]
sr: spacing... any style property. changed wording. "following" can be added.
