TOPIC: Bug reviews

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10779

<Joshue> Bug 10779 - triggering the Action of the command via accesskey 
[7 ] http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10779

<Marco_Ranon> add a11y_focus keyword and assign to GJR

<Joshue> Bug 10780 - reference to definition of Action insufficient for 
definition of accesskey

<kliehm> The HTML a11y bug triage sub-team thinks Gregory should provide 
more information. Bug #10888 would be the master bug for all accesskey 
related issues.

<Joshue> Bug 10781 - are accesskeys case sensitive?

<Joshue> Bug accepted. Checked in as WHATWG revision r5571.

<Joshue> Bug 10782 - problems with button example for accesskey

<Joshue> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10782

<Joshue> The HTML a11y bug triage sub-team thinks Gregory should file 
seperate bugs for each of these issues. 10888 would be the master bug 
for all accesskey related issues.

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10783

<Joshue> Bug 10783 - change summary from an attribute to an element

<Joshue> Dupe of bug 10784

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10784

<Joshue> Bug 10784 - change summary from an attribute to an element

<Joshue> This is a valid request, suggest escalating to HTML A11ytf.

<kliehm> Bug #10896: Enable device independent access to event handlers

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10896

<kliehm> STATUS: NEW, now assigned to DOM events group, a11ytf keyword 
already present. No action required.

<kliehm> Bug #10903: Provide an introduction to wai-aria in the wai aria 
section of the spec

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10903

<kliehm> The bug is in good hands, already an issue, adding a11yTF keyword.

<kliehm> Bug #10905: Clarify how assigning an accesskey to an element 
affects the elements default role

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10905

<kliehm> Bug has been taken care of in the past, no action required

<kliehm> Bug #10906: Make the conforming use of placeholder dependent on 
the presence of a label

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10906

<Marco_Ranon> The placeholder attribute

<Marco_Ranon> This attribute can be used on form elements to predefine 
text that disappears as soon as the field gets focus. It#s a visual 
indication of what is expected in the field. If, and only if, the field 
has no label otherwise, this placeholder text will be used to generate 
the AccessibleName, the name the screen reader speaks for the field when 
it gains focus. If the field has a label provided by...

<Marco_Ranon> ...the label element or an ARIA construct, the placeholder 
text will be ignored.

<kliehm> Bug #10914: Allow multiple space separated values for the ARIA 
role attribute

<kliehm> http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10914

<kliehm> Adding a11yTF keyword, assigning to Steve Faulkner.


TOPIC: Homework

<kliehm> Look at embedded content and compare fallback mechanisms and 
exposure to AT.
