14:08:49 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: shows webpage with 4 save buttons --- who benefits from which? How to keep things user specific?
14:08:56 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: is better semantics
14:09:02 [nigel]
Present+ Nigel_Megitt
14:09:38 [rmm]
I wouldn't have recognised the thumb drive icon as save - I would have assumed that meant to upload files.
14:09:38 [Lionel_Wolberger]
Content useable:
14:09:55 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Notes Content Usable and WCAG focus on creating content; we provide a technology to personalize for what the user needs and drop the rest
14:10:47 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Shows example of a simplified page--implementing author provided additional semantics
14:10:52 [Joshue108]
14:11:35 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: We want to support element level semantics

Matthew_Atkinson: reviews status of our several modules
14:12:46 [Sheri_B-H]
14:12:51 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Content Module--Module 1 currently in wide pre-CR wide review
14:13:44 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: our aim is a little ml to support most users who might benefit
14:14:24 [Lionel_Wolberger]
Lionel says to Sheri: We saw you speaking, but could not hear you.
14:14:26 [Sheri_B-H]
The thing that drives me crazy about the current approach to personalization is I can flag myself as low vision, or I can flag myself as motion sensitive, but I can't flag myself as both.
14:14:27 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: notes our attributes are complimentary
14:14:45 [Sheri_B-H]
apologies for the bad connection, it rained in California so of course everything breaks :-)
14:14:49 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Reviews Content Module specification
14:15:15 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Authors indicate what might be most important on their page
14:15:53 [JF]
@Sheri - can you expand on that more? We don't have a 'flagging' mechanism, so where are you doing that flagging?
14:16:10 [Sheri_B-H]
Using current overlays
14:16:11 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: shows how this drives simplification under user display
14:16:29 [Sheri_B-H]
I just want to make sure that it will be possible to have multiple disabilities accommodated for the sale experience
14:16:31 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: when the user asks for it
14:16:38 [Sheri_B-H]
14:16:51 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: shows code behind the example
14:17:14 [Lionel_Wolberger]
Lionel answering Sheri: This is a proposed HTML markup, applied by authors. The user-agent shall interpret that markup. So no requirement for an overlay.
14:17:19 [JF]
@sheri Ha! That is an implementation issue. We're providing mechanisms for users to take advantage of, we're leaving implementation to the tools
14:17:26 [Lionel_Wolberger]
Lionel asks Sheri, did that anwer?
14:17:49 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: looks at "purpose" attribute
14:18:35 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: notes we're repurposing available established auto completions
14:19:12 [Sheri_B-H]
partially - will the markup allow items to be marked to be interpreted by the tool for multiple (and possibly conflicting) states?
14:19:20 [Sheri_B-H]
example - something is moving, but it is critical information
14:19:30 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: shows how this can be represented using user preferred AAC symbol sets
14:19:53 [Lionel_Wolberger]
@sheri - these are applied on an element level. So it should encompass all the states of the element.
14:20:11 [Lionel_Wolberger]
@sheri, similarly it is open to javascript manipulation like any other HTML tag on the page.
14:20:42 [Lionel_Wolberger]
@sheri I am happy to give you a walk-through if you wish, and clarify these points

q+ Have any of the user agents (browser makers) shown interest in being likely to support these things?
14:23:18 [Sheri_B-H]
I'm good
14:24:51 [becky]
14:25:41 [janina]
rmm: asked about browser implementation?
14:26:11 [janina]
Lionel_Wolberger: Answered about content examples coming, incl U.S. Access Board; and now working on the browser side of things
14:26:40 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Shows some detail of AAC
14:27:06 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Key point, people who use AAC, use the symbol set they learned. There are many, and they aren't mutually intelligible
14:27:41 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: We're using an index of concepts, actively maintained, to auto transliterate to the user's preferred AAC
14:28:09 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: attribute value is just a numeric from the mapping index
14:28:26 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: that's what enables a user to get the symbol set they know
14:28:43 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: shows distraction control
14:29:05 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: example is an embedded stock ticker

nigel, you wanted to ask what the privacy implications are
14:33:02 [JF]
Q+ to respond to Nigel
14:33:04 [janina]
nigel: Asks about privacy considerations?
14:33:39 [janina]
nigel: Can the page know the user has invoked this technology?
14:34:11 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: Notes this is passive from the site--no mechanism for report from the user; unless a user agent implemented that way
14:34:33 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: But reporting upstream isn't required in any way for this to work
14:35:00 [janina]
nigel: concerned about javascript observing what happens for the user
14:35:28 [jamesn]
+1 nigel
14:35:33 [janina]
nigel: suggests we consider implications
14:36:24 [janina]
jf: suggests we're sticking to basic html model; so phps a ua might do something; but we are following usual practice here
14:36:53 [janina]
jf: suggests it would be a ua approach, phps cookies
14:37:45 [janina]
lisa: Mentions have also protyped extension mechanism on user equipment
14:38:19 [Matthew_Atkinson]
14:38:25 [janina]
lisa: agrees user privacy is an important concern
14:38:37 [janina]
lionel: asks focus of nigel's concern
14:39:06 [janina]
nigel: believes it could be yet another vector for discovering data about users
14:40:11 [janina]
lisa: agrees with concern about abuse
14:42:04 [janina]
jamesn: Notes issue has come up in ARIA; also not a two way communication; but it hasn't been much of an issue
14:42:34 [janina]
jamesn: suggests the privacy horizontal review would be helpful
14:42:49 [janina]
Lionel_Wolberger: will take as an action
14:43:20 [janina]
Lionel_Wolberger: compares to user zooming
14:43:28 [Joshue108]
14:44:22 [janina]
Lionel_Wolberger: suggests dom won't now presentation changed
14:44:58 [Joshue108]
JS: We need horizontal review before we go past CR..
14:45:06 [LisaSeemanKest]
we did have a security review (I think)
14:45:16 [Joshue108]
But I want to suggest our experience working on trial implementations, we have learned things
14:45:34 [becky]
ack Janina
14:45:37 [nigel]
Unless specific steps are taken in the specs, the DOM will certainly change when presentation changes. That's the way a client library has to work, and if it changes, then other code can observe that.
14:45:40 [Joshue108]
An interactive page, a la Access Board for example, seems like a good place to imlement
14:45:49 [Joshue108]
14:46:01 [Lionel_Wolberger]
14:46:04 [Joshue108]
ack JF
14:46:04 [Zakim]
JF, you wanted to respond to Nigel
14:46:10 [janina]
janina: suggests early implementation with U.S. Access Board suggests interactive page is a good place
14:46:25 [janina]
s/place/place to start trialing page markup/
14:46:42 [janina]
jf: talks about how a third party service provider could help mediate
14:46:49 [janina]
jf: a proxy server
14:47:17 [janina]
jf: so an authenticated proxy process might help ameliorate privacy/security
14:47:59 [Joshue108]
ack mat
14:48:32 [janina]
nigel: if a site is monitoring for changes to dom, it's theoretically possible
14:49:10 [nigel]
14:49:33 [Lionel_Wolberger]
Lionel notes- people are concerned about changes to the DOM. I don't think rendering based on Personalization 1.0 markup would require such changes, in a mature implementation.
14:49:43 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: agrees we will pursue expressed concerns
14:49:57 [janina]
jf: agrees and requests more feedback and suggestions
14:50:14 [janina]
Matthew_Atkinson: asks any more questions?
14:50:26 [Joshue108]
14:50:48 [jamesn] is the relevant TAG design principle
14:51:21 [Jennie_]
Very excited! Looking forward to reviewing options for joining a proof of concept.
14:51:23 [janina]
