San Diego face-to-face meeting problem statements

<Charles> https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iu5b2qSEONzJfi4cq62AFu7C8SoP7Zblcz3uremER04/edit?usp=sharing

Charles: We have identified problem areas based on the research that we are addressing with individual problem testing


Charles: You are conformant only when the the test is done.


Jemma: How do major organizations handle conformance?

Jennsion: It's complicated. Different products may all be represented on one page, and one product could be more conformant than another.
... we will also have external vendors help us out with audits
... Keep in mind, that we don't have to have conformance sections anymore by W3C process requirements.
... I think that we do need to have some conformance, because of legal and regulatory reasons.

Jemma: Organizations and different types of tech need a way to declare conformance

Kelsey: Isn't it only non-government organizations that are required to conform?

Charles: It depends on the location. Accessibility is a human right.
... there is a large number of lawsuits against businesses in the US right now.
... the cost is mostly the cost of litigation rather than making the actual site accessible.

Jeanne: I think we also need a problem statement for percentage compliance.

Jemma: I think that is part of Accessibility Supported

Charles: It could be, but it is different from Accessibility Supported.

Jeanne: If we are going to merge it, I think it belongs more with evolving technology, but I think it needs to be its own issue.
... WE willl continue on Friday.
