TPAC meeting & presentation plans

[reviewing the agenda and discussion of the AGWG activity]

<scribe> scribe: jeanne

The ideas are starting to come toward giving AGWG the style guide and ask them to re-write existing success criteria in plain language with tagging .

CHarles: We could divide the WG into small groups -- some with existing success criteria, and some with SC that didn't make it into WCAG 2.1 (as a stress test)

Cybele: Would this be a valid test, because some people objected to them.

Shawn: We could do a totally fake test -- like, "every page has to have a picture of a dog" so we can have them focus on the process.

Charles: The challenge is time. The participant will be focused on imagining the scenario, instead of writing it simply.

Shawn: I want to test the maintainability of it. FOr plain language, I want to test the Style Guide.

Two groups: one to work on Information Architecture (maintainability) and one to work on Plain Language (convert existing content).

Charles: It would be research, not usability testing. This is not statistically valid confirmation of something, yes or no.

Shawn: But we could take the results and turn it into an Editor's Draft. It would need more work because we don't have a solid conformance model yet.
... This exercise takes advantage of their expertise without them having to be on Silver calls.

Charles: Do a card-sorting exersize to determine tags we hadn't considered.

[discussion of a card sorting exersize]

Charles: If that is a stretch, then we probably shouldn't do it.

Jeanne: We could run three groups and have the 3 people there lead each one.

Plain language prototype

Mike Crabb did a working prototype of the plain language tabs.

Cyborg: I commented on the plain language prototype. My chief concerns were including a tab for Usability Testing or Person-centered testing and whether there is consideration of product-wide guidance. This seems to be focused on component level guidance.

Jeanne: Mike, is there any update on on Information ARchitecture

There is no front end interface yet, but there are queries that are working. I should have a front end working by Tuesday.
