Jennison: Translation conversation?

Jeanne: Now working on getting things together for supporting translation

Jennison: Will get someone to translate from English to French, and then back to English to make sure it's accurate

Jeanne: Needs to understand how to make translation a line item, will follow up

Task Force driven research: interviews, analysis, etc.

<Lauriat> Silver Task Force Research Ideas: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N0tvIX1zWiNSKSmC2xYwsnFwCzgTGguj0_rADK7boRY/edit

Shawn: Legacy research interviews, work on questions

<Lauriat> https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/task-forces/silver/wiki/Research_Projects#High_Priority_Research_Questions

Jeanne: Reviewing high-priority research questions, will map them to interview questions
... Conformance structure interviews, reviewing questions

Jennison: Sharing questions in advance helps, saves time
... Provide interview prompt in the script, will provide examples

Jeanne: Hoping to do a lot of the interviews
... Do a test run of the questions, will help figure out prompts

Shari: Prompts are important, we can identify those from a pilot of interviews
... Has access to software we can use for analysis
... Not new software, but we can try it
... Legacy and visionaries are smaller numbers, maybe do by hand
... Conformance are larger numbers, might be helpful to use software
... Want to make sure responses are related to what we are trying to find out
... Want to make sure we have standards for how we are interpreting the responses

Jennison: We could limit the number of interviews overall

Jeanne: Conformance group has people in lots of different roles
... We may have people we would interview twice
... Important to capture legacy perspectives

<jeanne> Sarah: Reminder for all of us, the reason we are asking the questions is to help us make decisions when we move into the next phase of the process. This is design research, not academic research. This should help us make decisions about what to do next.

<jeanne> ... we may want to do a brainstorming activity of the phrases we would want to say as a result of the interviews. We don't want to say "20% of the people spoke about this".

<jeanne> ... we will gather themes and the themes are really useful. The actionable themes will bubble up and we can carry those forward into the prototypes.

<jeanne> ... for example, "the requirements for being a WCAG success criteria are: testable, passive voice, etc." We may say that the actionable theme going forward are that there needs to be simple language.

<jeanne> Jennison: We need to document that if there are particularly popular themes.

<jeanne> Sarah: Yes, but we are doing a design exercise. As Henry Ford famously said, "if I built what people wanted, I would have built a faster horse." We don't want to build a faster horse.

Shawn: Get a target list of people overall and identify one to pilot
... Michael Cooper has ideas for legacy interviews
