to enable people who are deaf or hard of hearing to watch synchronized media presentations.

This meeting is a working session to exercise the writing process. Scribing is light.

<Lauriat> +1 to Chuck

<jeanne> +1 Chuck

<Zakim> Rachael, you wanted to respond

+1 and thanks for the additional explanation

The context helped me to understand it!

It has not

And I made a scribed note that this is a working session and scribing is light.

<Rachael> +1 yay!

<Zakim> Rachael, you wanted to respond


<Lauriat_> +1 to jeanne

<JenStrickland> Is there budget to compensate people with disabilities in user interviews sessions?

<Lauriat_> Likely not from W3C, but we can/should ask member orgs for funding to do so.

<Lauriat_> …especially if member orgs do the research studies to contribute, that'll make it easier (Google has done this before, specifically on non-text contrast).

<Rachael> +10000

Preview AG WG call

<jeanne2> On Tuesday, we will focus on the test section. Survey closed on Thursday.

<jeanne2> The next survey focusing on conformance levels/scoring will close next week

<jeanne2> We have a fairly complete conformance section based on the past 6 months work.

Writing process: review the updated template & start writing an "easy" one using it

<jeanne2> This meeting is a working session to exercise the writing process. Therefore scribing is light.

<jeanne2> Next steps: let's implement placeholders for everything once we have the grouping together.

Getting input from Experts

<jeanne2> Janina: I am working on a proposal from APA on keeping a list of experts that WAI can contact for input. I'm looking for ideas

<jeanne2> Jeanne: We have the Community Group structure with light-weight IP to bring people in on a temporary basis

<jeanne2> Rachael: (paraphrased) It would be helpful to have a light-weight process for experts

<jeanne2> Jen: Invited Expert is an attractive title

<jeanne2> ... we need to reach out to people who no longer participate to say that we are working on changing the culture and that they would be welcome back.

<jeanne2> [see above conversation on compensating people with disabilities who participate in user interview sessions]

<jeanne2> This day IRC was down or unreliable, so the minutes are jumbled.

<jeanne2> jeanne: We also need a list of experts who participate in other parts of WAI that would be willing to look at drafts or join in a one-time conversation.
