    Appendix E: Checklist

    Appendix F: Comparison of ATAG 1.0 guidelines to ATAG 2.0

    Since Alex needs to leave early, Jutta requested his input on the

    AL: Why do we even need a checklist?

    JT: It was in the document for a long time, it hasn't been updated
    in a long time.

    TB: It has use in providing more information and material to the

    AL: I am not opposed to moving the appendixes to the Implementing

Intent-Examples-Resources for B.1.2.2 Copy-Paste Inside Authoring Tool



    SN: It is somewhat ambiguous, is there other text that provides more
    ... I don't know where anyone else talks about properties of copy
    and paste? How would you validate and test for it?

    JT: How would you determine if accessibility information survived
    the copy/paste process.
    ... the application may only be intermediary.

    SN: You could only validate that the originating information was

    JT: An example of copy/paste a video or portions of a video and its
    ... or copy and pasting an image, if the authoring tool also copies
    the alt text.

    SN: What does WCAG do?
    ... this situation can occur outside the tool, not necessarily tool
    related - mostly happens in the OS.

    JS: I don't think WCAG addresses it, because it is an authoring

    TB: I am looking at the guideline and it doesn't address copy-paste
    -- just within the authoring tool. In the implementing document, we
    are talking about moving between authoring tools.

    JT: This was written because of questions that the implications of
    B.1.2.2 included copy-paste.
    ... the concern is that B.1.2.2 could be interpreted to include
    copy-paste, and we needed examples of how copy-paste would be
    adhered to. That is what led to this text.

    TB: This says the authoring tool doing the copy would also be doing
    the pasting.

    SN: I don't know what this says, I think it is ambiguous and how do
    you test for it, how do you test for all the conditions. At some
    point, someone would have to verify that you could do it.

    JS: I can think of a fairly simple test where you copy an image with
    alternative text and then paste it back into the document and look
    to see if the alternative text was copied over.

    SN: So why did we split out copy and paste?

    JT: Because Alex expressed concern about copy-paste and asked for
    illustrative examples.

    SN: I think it could be a little clearer

    JT: Could you suggest some changes?

Whether to move these appendices to the Implementing doc?:

    JS: I see both sides -- WCAG 2.0 deliberately moved away from
    checklists, but have been criticized for lack of checklist and other
    people have written checklists.

    TB: If we move it to the Implementing document, people may not see

    RESOLUTION: Move the checklist into the Implementing document, but
    keep a reference to them in the Guidelines document

Finalizing responses to the few remaining outstanding comments.


    JT: Before he had to leave, Alex reviewed them and had no criticism.
    ... we are referencing a Note, the NOte may add more detail into the

    SN: Looks fine to me.

    TB: Fine with me.

    RESOLUTION: Accept the edits to outstanding comments from


Last Call planning

    JS: Once we vote for Last Call, it takes two weeks to publish, then
    I expect to request a 6 week turnaround. Does any company need more
    than 6 weeks?

    SN: I would be very hard pressed to get feedback in 6 weeks given
    the major conferences and spring break. There are also deadlines for
    508 work that the same people are involved in. I think 8 weeks are
    more reasonable.

    JR: I think in the big picture, 8 weeks is not unreasonable.

    JS: I think that those reasons are defensible, so I am ok with
    requesting 8 weeks.

    <Tim> next week is Presidents Day in U.S. so must send regrets
