<ToddL> Hi Matthew

MiniApp Manifest

<MichaelC> - request: https://github.com/w3c/a11y-request/issues/28

<MichaelC> - tr: https://www.w3.org/TR/miniapp-manifest/

<MichaelC> - review: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2022Jul/0008.html

CSS Containment

<MichaelC> - tracking: https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/CSS_Containment_Module_Level_3

<MichaelC> - review: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2022Jul/0006.html

Michael: Containment allows the isolation of an area on the page
… content hidden advises the browser that some content should not be visible
… is different from ARIA=hidden and is for off-screen text
… Level 3 adds more features that do not impact accessibility

<Matthew_Atkinson> Here's some support info on CSS content-visibility: https://caniuse.com/css-content-visibility

Janina: APA could advise WCAG regarding this technique, and urge them to write examples

Matthew_Atkinson: Using content visibility to visually hide things, but not hide them from assistive technologies
… we are eager for WCAG example, explaining which Success Criteria can be met using this technique
… should take existing techniques and show how this new CSS technique is relevant

Task Force & Deliverables Updates


<janina> https://w3c.github.io/adapt/content/

<Matthew_Atkinson> Lionel_Wolberger: As janina mentioned, the CfC for moving the Adapt Content Module 1.0 to CR is out; please send in your feedback.

<Matthew_Atkinson> Lionel_Wolberger: We're working on all the things that go around the CR transition (announcement, 'blog post, ...)

<Matthew_Atkinson> janina: We're going to need to write a companion spec to help us set up the W3C Registry for Bliss concept ID lookup, to map to the user's chosen symbol set.

<Matthew_Atkinson> janina: This may happen before our second CR. There will be two CRs, as the first is using data-* attributes; ultimately we'll request a prefix.


janina: RQTF met with its sub-group Maturity Model (inherited from Silver)
… content is migrated to a github document

<janina> https://w3c.github.io/maturity-model/

janina: time now to clean it up and get it out before TPAC
… SAUR announced and published
… Remote meetings published

Actions Checkin (Specs) https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/track/actions/open

TPAC22 https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/Meetings/TPAC_2022

janina: High on the list, but not there yet. It's mid-July. Working on said score.

Matthew_Atkinson: No news per se. We will be soon reaching out to teh WGs we've asked to speak with to reserve calendar slots.

yakim, close this item

Other Business

janina: A thought: SAUR is published and was just announced. There is a wonderful e-mail on WAI-announce about it.

janina: That is not a normative specification. So how does WCAG take advantage of it? Thez will have to decide.

janina: I'm thinking we have groups to talk to at TPAC about SAUR. We have talked about it advancing to W3C statement status which may be a way to take it further.

janina: I shall be looking into this.

Matthew_Atkinson: We should build on it and the people working in that area know more about it because of the pooling of knowledge but it would be nice to make it into something that we're more exposed to, all of us.

janina: The synchronization of just the video and the audio needs to fall into something where everyone drops off. It's not just a11y. We reviewed a lot of research which we documented in this doc. It's probably reasonable material to createa a spec around.

janina: Teh Reporting API may want to report on that, for instance.

janina: There are reasons for wanting to have a W3C wide spec. It realy is a curb cut. Even captions is a curb cut.

Matthew_Atkinson: Sometimes game makers make acaptions opt-in and a lot of people opt in because they are in an environment where sound is an issue.

Matthew_Atkinson: One of the Assassi's Creed games made the captions opt-out and 90 percent or so left them on.

Matthew_Atkinson: The number is just off the top of my head, I can find the exact nbumbers if you like.

be done

We are done!
