We have a tentative plan to wrap up the Canvas 2D Context API mapping
document changes in the canvas accessibility working group:

Review and complete final edits by May 24 and take to HTML accessibility
task force straw poll May 24
Have the HTML Accessibility task force review the poll on the May 27 call.
Deliver the final change proposal to the HTML working group on June 3.

Any objections to this schedule must be provided by May 13. I made some
editorial changes to the proposal today. I have had feedback from Mozilla
(and would welcome more) but I need feedback from Apple and Microsoft. The
minutes for the last canvas accessibility meeting (May 3) are below.

As it sets we can cover accessibility API mappings for both IE and FF on
Windows. I am waiting to hear back from Maciej.

(See attached file: 2dcontext10-May-04.html)


I supplied the minutes from the last meeting below.

Canvas API proposal for focus and caret tracking


rs: think that API should be easy to use


db: yes


magnifiers should be able to track


rs: any other issues with proposal?


db: not sure


hoped for input from others


context for interpreting doc?


rs: Mac platform doesn't have a caret


so drawFocusRing allows to locate focus


also have a blink rate adjustment


the entre focus and caret selection management section is redone


<reads from proposal>


<davidb> rich you have "within the user agent within the user agent"


<davidb> do we need this line "This method only draws the focus ring if the
element is focused or is a descendant of the element with focus, so that it
can simply be called whenever drawing the element, without checking whether
the element is focused or not first"?


<davidb> yeah this needs edits "If the drawCustomRing argument is true,
then"...


requirements allowing AT to have their needs met


and accommodating varying caret handling


db: sounds like a good 100% solution; worried about it a bit


rs: at least we allow author to do this, even though they might not


db: prefer to give author a solution they will use


rs: yeah; looked at an alternative but we all knew authors wouldn't do it


db: this section is looking clearer to me now


need to get everybody to read it and then discuss


rs: difficult to set a date for delivery because people aren't responding
to requests for review


think we could wrap this up in two weeks if people participate


need to discourage people from doing text editing n canvas


mc: think we need to set a date that is serious


and convey to everyone that the window closes after that date, task force
must submit something on that date


there would be opportunity for further work afterwards, but it would be a
different aspect of the process


rs: <thinking through steps, edits to make, review cycles


let's plan to wrap this up by 24 May internally


take to poll for 27 May


<davidb> sounds good


deliver to HTML for 3 June


mc: suggest we send this proposed schedule to the canvas group


ask for objections before 13 May


after that, the dates are set


we'll all need to convey the importance of sticking to this schedule


rs: run by Alex Surkov?


<davidb> sure


db: would have a lot of questions...


rs: will copy him in


will make editorial tweaks


and send this around
