sarahhorton: Walkthrough the Issues Severity Worksheet for the group

fantastic work on the severity sheet by Sarah.

sarahhorton: want to focus on critical barriers. prioritization is a big issue. focus attention on things that make a difference.

<ShawnT> +1 on focusing on critical errors to start

sarahhorton: should discuss categorization

sarahhorton: can we have any severity assessment in WCAG3? that's the question.

ShawnT: a lot of it is sujective

ShawnT: the more "experts" weigh in, the more subjective things can be

sarahhorton: there is an effort to do a severity rating at an SC level

sarahhorton: draw from Main User Needs into severity worksheet method as another dimension to the document


sarahhorton: a few decisions we can make to move forward

sarahhorton: look at only critical issues

sarahhorton: take a few that are critical and add into severity worksheet. next step is to build out all functional needs columns

ShawnT: instead of marking everything "critical" mark everything whatever the main functional need issue is.

ShawnT: take SC from categorization document and work on that for next meeting

top row, functional needs, cells are user needs.

ask group about how detailed those heading columns would be.
