Synchronization Accessibility User Requirements.
jasonjgw: Michael Cooper is working on editorial changes
jasonjgw: Working on messaging
janina: Minor correction: Michael was thinking more about additional headings and other changes to make the content more digetsable
janina: Good to get this fixed first before the CfC is issued
janina: Otherwise we should be continuing to advance to a W3C "Statement" status, which is new
jasonjgw: We do not expect the editorial changes to take that long
Inaccessibility of CAPTCHA.
jasonjgw: Communications are underway with relevant groups
jasonjgw: Leave in agenda for next week
Accessibility of collaboration tools.
jasonjgw: Wiki page has been updated with distinctions and central issues
scott_h: Began to search the research literature, but so far have not found much additional materials
jasonjgw: At the moment, the best strategy is to keep adding to the wiki page
Natural Language Interface Accessibility User Requirements.
jasonjgw: Updated working draft was published
jasonjgw: No comments yet
jasonjgw: We do still have some open issues
jasonjgw: Will look at the open issues
Joshue108: Some of the COGA issues are still open
janina: Will ping COGA about additional clarifications that are needed
janina: A label stating that further clarification is pending might be good
janina: Pointing them to the specific github issues could be good
Joshue108: Will review the issues where we still need clarification and will get back to Janina and Jason
Joint Working Group meetings at TPAC 2022.
jasonjgw: Not positive if we have enough critical mass on topics to propose joint meetings
janina: Maybe a Wednesday session on the NAUR?
jasonjgw: That is a possibility
janina: Perhaps the collaborative editing tools?
jasonjgw: That seems like a good potential
jasonjgw: CAPTCHA might be another topic if we have enough done by that point
janina: May need to look at furthering speech tagging aside from the language tag to allow for things like a child's voice
janina: The current specs do not hot handle this
janina: These issues connect Internationalization and Accessibility needs, so potentially useful for joint meeting discussion
janina: For example, input from a new community group looking at accessibility needs for children
Joshue108: The FAST group also met with this community group
jasonjgw: There is also the work being done in the Math Working Group on the new MathML spec
Miscellaneous topics. -- taken up
jasonjgw: One comment came in on Accessibility of Remote Meetings
jasonjgw: This may point to some ambiguity
Raja: It is challenging as children's voices change over time - as do people with speech disabilities, but definitely something to be noted
Raja: handling these edge cases benefits everyone
janina: Yes...we need to do more in the way of specifying aspects which currently are not supported in the current specs
Raja: e.g. steve gleason's ALS and collaboration with MS -- to save speech samples and use these as his speech declined
Joshue108: To Jason: About neural-networks - further input?
jasonjgw: New developments from Google and others are moving toward using a neural network for the entire TTS process
jasonjgw: COQI - demonstrated the ability to record one's own voice and use that to program TTS
janina: That was also mentioned my Mark Hakkinen
jasonjgw: Would be good to look at their tooling
jasonjgw: Also announcements from Google and Microsoft show a lot of new development in both TTS and speech dictation
Joshue108: Upcoming panel talk at ICCHP to discuss cognitive disability connections to immersive environments
janina: COGA is planning to meet at ICCHP so that would be a good place for coordinating
