Agenda Review & Announcements
mhakkinen: we have submitted the abstract in ATIA. second round kicks off later in the summer
mhakkinen: there is another ticket about CSS.
mhakkinen: biggest gap in CSS approach is that it doesnt provide all the solutions
paul_grenier: Based on our gap analysis document, CSS speech has no mechanism for language, phonetic pronunciation, substitution, and "say as" (feature).
JF: I am concerned about i18 problem. are screen reader actually doing the translation?
mhakkinen: its not SR but synthesizer
JF: have we thought about attribute and value where we can enforce SR reader to read it correctly.
JF: I do not think is it really a problem that we should be fixing.
JF: SR is fixing that problem
janina: dd:mm:yyyy is an example where we may need some test cases
janina: locale settings should help for the issue entered in #84. we can't fix everything
paul_grenier: its up to author of TTS to figure out certain things. this is not for us to solve. we can't fix bad authoring
paul_grenier: we have a date method in our document where we can provide some examples.
paul_grenier: there is a format attribute as date.
JF: looking at working group note where it got that format attribute which can help answering COGA question.
JF: Doesn't solve the authoring problem but there is a mechanism.
janina: we need to draft a response and send it to COGA as a formal response.
<JF> Google's Media 'tag': https://
JF: is there anything actionable here?
paul_grenier: do we want to incorporate some of these notes into our documents?
janina: We are not ready to respond on this yet. Let us see other comments and arguments as well.
JF: we can acknowledge the comments.
mhakkinen: issue is here that one side is not using a11y API but DOM. he is right his approach that its going to be more expensive for him.
paul_grenier: even without the a11y API its using data set programmatically that would provide lot of speed than query selector.
mhakkinen: we are not aiming not to use any API.
paul_grenier: will make a note to myself to do some test with treewalker and data set.
mhakkinen: may be we can have something like aria-ssml or something
mhakkinen: have questions about outreach. contacted MS but heard nothing. Also haven't heard from NVDA. Those are the implementors that we need to hear from
