Re: AUWG Teleconference on October 17, 2005 - TODAY

From: Jan Richards <jan.richards@utoronto.ca>
Date: Mon, 17 Oct 2005 16:33:44 -0400
Message-ID: <43540AA8.5020508@utoronto.ca>
To: "List (WAI-AUWG)" <w3c-wai-au@w3.org>

The meeting was canceled today as only BF and JR were on the call by 4:15pm.

So....here on the issues I need to settle for the public draft. For each 
I will include a default course of action (*) that I will take if people 
don't object:


> - Definition of authoring tool.

*=Use the proposed definition since it has been crafted to handle 
multi-tool conformance solutions:

ATAG 2.0 defines an "authoring tool" as: any software, or collection of 
software components, that authors use to create or modify Web content 
for publication. A collection of software components are any software 
products used together (e.g. base tool and plug-in) or separately (e.g. 
markup editor, image editor, and validation tool), regardless of whether 
there has been any formal collaboration between the developers of the 

> - Conformance Claims section

*=keep it as shown in the internal draft.

> - Tactile, reading level, cognitive? comment in A.1.3

*=leave this out.

> - undo for Web-based tools (A.2.7)

*=Expand A.2.7 note to read:
"For all Web-based interface components, meeting checkpoint A.0.1 will 
serve to meet this checkpoint. Web-based browsers may rely on the undo 
function of the browser to perform the undo function of editing that 
does not involve server communication (e.g. typing in a text area). For 
this reason, the browser specified in the conformance profile must have 
the ability to perform at least one level of text entry undo."

> - definition of "technologies" - we decided to go with "content type" at 
> the Washington DC F2F.

This needs discussion:

We started using Content Type, but WCAG uses "Technology". Perhaps it 
would be best to return to "Technology" and use the WCAG definition with 
our own added examples:

Technology means a data format, programming or markup language, protocol 
or API. (e.g. HTML, CSS, SVG, PDF, Flash)
