Agenda Review & Announcements

JF: Paul Bowman has joined pronounciation task force

Janina: any announcements? - heard none

Para-CSUN Planning

JF: discussed social activity during CSUN; found IHOP and Denny's as close locations to hotel for a breakfast together;
... looks like 8-10 people or more; should we invite Silver TF?
... will select Tuesday as a few preferences for that
... will use doodle pool to get a better count and try to make a reservation (asked about a11y - will make accommodations if not)

Task Force Updates -- Upcoming Publications

<janina> brb

<Joshue_108_> Good stuff Matthew!

Matthew: landmarks extension is now available on Edge for keyboard users; originally written by someone from IBM and I took over
... rewritten as web extension so now available for most browsers

<Matthew_Atkinson> Here is the URL if you'd like to try it: http://matatk.agrip.org.uk/landmarks/

Janina: chatted with Lisa heard and audio description in video that she was looking for wrt cognitive - so do we need an additonal audio track (asked for by coga) to identify alternative media track for video
... Lisa's experience that an audio description had all the info that someone with cognitive issues would need
... so maybe we don't need another track type, just a better description of audio track
... publications expect CfC for some documents

Irfan: Use cases and explainer documents from pronounciation

Janina: explainer was requested by TAG - will get feedback from them; also ask for WICG feedback
... expect CfC before the end of the week for the above two docs

Josh: RTC A11y requirements CfC coming soon

Janina: discussed verifiable credentials in the past few months; good discussion of a11y concerns; we asked for "killer" use cases

<janina> https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/task-forces/research-questions/wiki/Some_use_cases_for_verifiable_credentials#Use_Cases

Jason: RQTF has collated a range of use cases and prioritized and entered in priority order on wiki page; we are seeking comments on substance and prioritization
... will forward to verifiable credentials group after review - would like to meet end of February deadline
... first one: International Transfer of Service Dogs and Comfort Animals- facilitate a verifiable credentials for service animals

JF: this may also help prevent people from "spoofing" service animals - this takes this further than just government agencies - airlines, hotels, service industries

Janina: very compelling use case - something people will grok

Jason: Verification of Disability Status to establish Eligibility for Opportunities or Benefits - not a binary classification of a disability - is a more finely grained statement of situation that can be used to determine benefit needs;
... Private and Secure Access to Individual Needs and Preferences - need distinction between transient preferences that vary across time and those that are do not; can limit access to only what information is required for the current interaction
... Asserting Conformance to Accessibility Standards - 3rd party verifiers; organizations publishing software or hardware want to make verifiable assertions of their accessibility implementations
... Privacy-preserving Identification of Users to Web-Based Applications and Services - verifiable credential of proof they are a person without revealing PII other than using CAPTCHA

Janina: goal is to state these as clearly and succinctly as possible and forward along to the Verifiable credentials group

Jason: looking for comments on the substance and will rework

<Matthew_Atkinson> This is really exciting stuff :-).

Janina: it's one thing for chips in service animals - not sure we are ready for embedded chips in humans

Jason: raise the comments on list, please

Actions Checkin (Specs) https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/track/products/8

becky: looked at picture in picture FPWD; do we need to request a11y statement to remind people to provide a11y of UI interactions

JF: is really picture on top of picture;
... one use case is delivering sign language
... multiple layers but when look head on you just see two dimensions - how do I get to the correct layer.

becky: from the document it appears user agent my control windows

Jason: usability testing with pwd so manipulate picture in picture

Janina: sounds like some questions and use cases to ask

<JF> +1 to janina

Janina: need to ask about mechanism for navigating from window to window

becky: will file an issue with them
