Weekly Resolved & Rejected Bugs Report

Message-ID: <z2h1c8dbcaa1004250307gd89984bercb909e22aa53600f@mail.gmail.com>
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Hello Everyone,

Since last week's report we have had six VERIFIED NOREPLY Bugs, one
NEW bug, and one FIXED bug.

It is anticipated that the survey for the CAPTCHA bug will happen
soon, as a draft was presented to Mike Smith a month ago.

We still need to agree on criteria for applying the "a11yTF" keyword.
I strongly recommend that this be completed soon, as it is a blocker
for task force pursuit of work items key to our mission
(text-alternatives, ARIA, canvas).

The details are as follows.

1. VERIFIED NOREPLY BUGS:

As a small part of a HTML working group mass bug move, Maciej [1] [2]
set the following six A11y bugs to NOREPLY.

NoReply puts a bug in a terminal state. [3]

1.1  Bug 5807: "User Agent display of title attribute content not
defined." Reported by Steve Faulkner.
Status: VERIFIED NEEDSINFO
Keywords: a11y, NoReply
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5807

1.2  Bug 5823: "Scope allowable on a td." Reported by Gez Lemon.
Status: VERIFIED DUPLICATE of bug 5822
Keywords: a11y, a11y_table_headers, NoReply
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5823

1.3  Bug 6181: "Process table feedback (including headers='" issue)"
Reported by Ian 'Hixie' Hickson.
Status: VERIFIED FIXED
Keywords: a11y, a11y_table_headers, NoReply
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id= 6181

1.4  Bug 7144: "I am not sure if we are ditching ALT in favour of
legend. You don't make this clear here. Some of your alt examples here
resemble longdesc, which I am in favour of ditching completely. I'd be
interested to see your answer on whatwg list about this." Reported by
contributor@whatwg.org.
Status: VERIFIED FIXED
Keywords: a11y, a11y_text-alt, NoReply
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7144

1.5  Bug 7404: "But only if the element is being rendered" needs to
take into account <canvas> descendants if we're making them
focusable." Reported by contributor@whatwg.org.
Status: VERIFIED FIXED
Keywords: a11y, a11ytf, a11y_canvas, NoReply
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7144

1.6  Bug 7740: "Authoring advice for canvas is bad for accessibility."
Reported by Steve Faulkner.
Status: VERIFIED DUPLICATE of bug 7011
Keywords: a11y, a11y_canvas, NE, NoReply
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7740


2. FIXED BUG:

2.1 Bug 9174: "Consider adding a Webcam example" reported by Laura
Carlson on Steve's Document "Techniques for providing useful text
alternatives". Reported by Laura Carlson.
Status: Accepted
Change Description: have added a webcam images technique and examples:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/#webcam

Steve's Rationale: "It is useful to include advice on this particular
type of image."

My View: The fix looks like it is in accordance with WCAG2 to me. If
anyone doesn't agree please speak up.

3. NEW BUG:
	
3.1 Bug 9589: "HTML5 should give examples for how to present @title
when the user can't use a pointing device" Reported by Maciej
Stachowiak.
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9589

My View: I recommend that we expedite defining "a11ytf" keyword
criteria and accept this bug as official task force work. It is key to
Issue 31 and 80 and their change proposals.


4. CAPTCHA BUG:

Hopefully the survey for the CAPTCHA bug will happen soon. A draft was
delivered to Mike a month ago on March 21. The target time frame to go
live was over three weeks ago.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/CAPTCHA_Survey
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0437.html

Mike, do you need any more help with this? Is there anything else I
can do to help move this forward?


5. ESTABLISHING "A11yTF" KEYWORD CRITERIA:

We still need to agree on criteria for applying the "a11yTF" keyword.
It would be good to settle this soon as this is a blocker for the task
force pursuit of items key to our mission (i.e. Text Alternatives,
ARIA).

The March 18, 2010 teleconference minutes indicated that a non trivial
cost exists to tagging bugs "a11ytf" and that the task force needs to
agree on criteria for our decisions to take on bugs. A Wiki page
brainstorms ideas begun in the email "Criteria for 'a11yTF' keyword
application".
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs/KeywordCriteria
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0438.html

We currently have twenty-seven HTML Spec bugs awaiting task force
decision. Ian Hickson is editor of that document.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs#HTML5_Spec_Bugs_Awaiting_A11yTF_Decision

We currently have four Bugs on Document "HTML5: Techniques for
providing useful text alternatives Bugs" awaiting task force decision.
Steve Faulkner is editor of that document.
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Bugs#Text_Alternatives_Techniques_Bugs_Awaiting_A11yTF_Decision

We currently have seven bugs that I am aware of that have the keyword
"a11ytf" applied with no approval from the task force:

"A11yTF" keyword applied to them in January 2009 are at:
