Lisa: EO has a number of documents that will be released next week. Those docs would benefit from COGA input. Any volunteers to review and discuss with this group so that we can provide feedback?

14:06:55 [JustineP]
Rain: EO expects to send docs by July 16 and they will need feedback returned by July 26 (although we can tell them if additional time will be needed).
14:07:29 [JustineP]
Lisa: We will need people to read docs, send feedback to the list, and discuss in a COGA meeting.
14:07:38 [JustineP]
...Anyone interested?
14:07:46 [Fazio]
14:08:14 [JustineP]
John K: I'm interested. Can we use Google docs?
14:08:25 [JustineP]
Lisa: Yes.
14:10:37 [JustineP]
...Working with Silver: As each subgroup considers moving user stories into Silver guidance template, we will need to collect references/links. Should we begin as Google docs and transfer to Wiki page? Need to gather research, testable statements, etc.
14:11:15 [JustineP]
...If we know that certain issues will be raised, we should be able to refer people to references/documentation.
14:11:52 [Jennie]
+1 - would be great to have a place to collect and review
14:11:56 [JustineP]
...Everyone okay with this approach?

topic:accessible authetification
14:17:55 [JustineP]
Lisa: We proposed to look at 4 open issues from AG in a subgroup. Does that sound like the right path forward?
14:18:33 [Rain]
14:18:34 [JustineP]
John R: Are issues unresolved?
14:18:41 [JustineP]
Lisa: Some issues seem to have been reopened.
14:19:14 [JustineP]
Rain: We spent a fair amount of time during last 2 meetings to prepare a response for issues related to accessible authentication (password toggle, user uploaded pictures).
14:20:06 [JustineP]
...Challenge is that we have varying, strong needs for the SC. Each time COGA has responded, new issues are raised in response to our feedback. EA has raised good points related to security policies.
14:20:26 [JustineP]
...We might need to form a subgroup to examine the issues thoroughly.
14:21:32 [JustineP]
John R: That has been going on for a long time and is typical for new, upcoming SCs. I think its important for people to understand that COGA has appropriate expertise.
14:21:33 [AbiJ]
14:22:30 [JustineP]
...Alastair has responded to Abi. I thought discussion was going well because no one has re-opened issues.
14:22:36 [JustineP]
14:23:06 [JustineP]
Rain: After last call, I sent an email asking for consensus from COGA and additional issues were raised in response.
14:23:40 [JustineP]
...We still don't have consensus from COGA.
14:23:53 [JustineP]
John R: Is that because not enough people responded or due to -1's?
14:24:03 [JustineP]
Rain: Due to -1's.

Abi: I am actively involved with organizations that have significant security requirements related to accessible authentication.
14:25:19 [JustineP]
...It seemed that the response was broadening scope of SC, specifically related to password fields, which could cause organizations to claim exceptions around the SC.
14:25:27 [Jennie]
14:25:49 [AbiJ]
14:26:36 [JustineP]
Lisa: I didn't think that being able to view your password solved the problem. Didn't seem enough from my perspective. We will still have issues with lengthy username/password combinations.
14:26:49 [JustineP]
...I would downgrade that to an advisory technique.

John R: Yes, that will be in the Understanding doc rather than directly in the SC text.

Jennie: Could we look at graduated response as it relates to Silver's conformance model?

Ignore the last, copy/paste issue
14:29:15 [JustineP]
John R: Abi, should we have a conversation and bring our thoughts back to COGA?
14:30:06 [JustineP]
Abi: Yes, I can discuss from my own perspective what a cognitive function test is.
14:31:09 [JustineP]
Lisa: Does that sound okay, John? To form a small group discussion with Abi, John, Alastair (John K and Lisa volunteered). This is a big issue that needs to be addressed.
14:31:41 [JustineP]
...Anyone available to coordinate the time/date of the call?
14:32:08 [JustineP]
...John R, do you want to send a list of possible times?

14:35:01 [JustineP]
Lisa: To summarize, issue is related to obscure content in Understanding doc. Anyone up-to-date on this thread?
14:35:24 [JustineP]
John K: I've been on top of that thread. Clear instructions seems to resolve issue.
14:35:48 [JustineP]

14:39:02 [LisaSeemanKest]
topic: issue
14:40:25 [JustineP]
Lisa: This issue is also related to visible controls. If you have an icon or visual indicator such as a down arrow, that will indicate that controls are visible by clicking in that area.
14:40:26 [Jennie]
14:40:30 [LisaSeemanKest]
coga feels that a single control such as an arrow(and text or personlization sematics for more ?) will indicate that contols are availible by clicking here. The full toolbar can be visible on clicking the "more icon"
14:41:11 [JustineP]
Jennie: Seems like a great idea to have a toggle to expose additional controls/options menu. Are you comfortable using "right click" function with relevant instructions placed before the area?
14:41:50 [johnkirkwood]
clear insturcutions on how to reveal controls ?
14:42:01 [JustineP]
Lisa: If we have clear instructions located before the control, that's okay with me. We can explicitly call for clear instructions before the control in the text.

Jennie: Same question as John K., as I know of a group that might be interested but would need to have an orientation session.

David: I received feedback from someone that was trying to teach people with developmental disabilities do user testing. They found the document difficult to understand.
14:58:28 [JustineP]
Lisa: We need to capture that feedback, I'm also hearing that they would like a document covering how to do user testing.
14:59:49 [JustineP]
David: Feedback was received from someone without a cognitive disability, not an expert in accessibility. Found it even more difficult to try to teach people with cognitive disabilities to do user testing.
15:00:00 [JustineP]
Lisa: That's important feedback that should either be submitted as an issue or sent to the list.
