group is now reviewing Makotos work on Low or No Background Audio

<janina> q+

<Zakim> Lauriat, you wanted to say I think we also drafted this last week in the group?

<janina> http://www.w3.org/TR/media-accessibility-reqs/#clean-audio

Group is discussing the three sub-guidelines

<janina> +1 to Makoto

<Zakim> Rachael, you wanted to ask if that would be its own sub guidline?

<Zakim> Lauriat, you wanted to note customizability in general as a potential approach for this

* started a theme here

<Lauriat> Adding them to the sub-guidelines now

<Lauriat> Thanks, Todd!

jeanne: reads from Makoto's suggestion ... test=objective

jeanne: this is 20db diff

Lauriat: less strict than none? suggests a range of variation

Lauriat: has some subjectivity; how frequent the occasional sounds happen

jeanne: frequent occurance and persistence of ambient sound that are 20db below primary audio

Lauriat: notes similar to color contrast; but noting there may be need for some variance, e.g. 30db rather than 20db based on situations

<Zakim> Lauriat, you wanted to ask whether this seems like essentially a less-strict outcome than no background audio

<Zakim> Lauriat, you wanted to note a suggestion of a future note around mixing for the intended audience

Lauriat: suggests an overall suggested level with supplamental docs on mixing for intended audience, etc

Lauriat: taking audience into account incl. expectations of where it will be listened to

janina: XR is an environment that is rich in this kind of audio

jeanne: was my thought that it has lots of discussion already

Rachael: captured into our notes;

/note/added to doc down below/

Rachael: at least we've captured for future discussion

<Lauriat> Awesome, thank you!



<Lauriat> +1, done enough for now!

+1 -- best for now
