Participants: Sarah Horton, Shawn Lauriet, Jeanne Spellman

Minutes from notes from Jeanne Spellman and Sarah Horton


Sarah: Review of How do we do the process of the process

  • Design thinking
  • User-centered process

Create a Project Charter with process, governance, goals & measurements

Looking at WCAG:

  • What is this thing?
  • How do people respond to it?
  • What should it be in the world?

WCAG today is about surface accessibility, but not about functionality Want to bring WCAG to modern technology

General Notes:

  • How did we get here
  • Shortcomings of WCAG for current technology, but this isn't the time to address that yet
  • Glad we started small
  • How do we want to work? wiki, phone meetings. Advantages in a F2F, but did not resolve whether it would be possible.
  • Who else do we want to pull in? We want a few more people (who are less familiar with WCAG?) for more input, but want to keep the group small to keep it nimble. [brainstormed some names]
