Subject: EOWG: Agenda and Readings for teleconference 9 September 2005


>
> EOWG:
>
> Calling logistics and an agenda for our 9 September 2005 teleconference
follow.
>
> Time:     8:30am - 10:30am U.S. Eastern time; for other time zones see:
>            http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html
> Bridge:   +1.617.761.6200, code: EOWG# (3694#)
> IRC:      channel: #eo, server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665
> SCRIBE:   Wayne, per: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2003/scribes.html
> -------
>
> BACKGROUND:
>
> In previous EOWG meetings we decided to make some interim changes to the
Evaluation Resource Suite, including breaking up into separate pages:
> http://www.w3.org/WAI/eval/
> EOWG decided to address only open change log items and serious concerns
with the content of the existing pages, and to hold off on any significant
editing and minor issues. We expect to re-write much of the evaluation
documents in 2006 with changes based on WCAG 2.0.
>
> Rather than waiting until all of the evaluation documents are complete, we
could put documents on the new site at different stages. A proposal for
addressing the evaluation documents is:
> * Evaluating Accessibility Overview - update on new site with update of
the next 3 documents below
> * Preliminary Reviews - put on new site as soon as feasible (in
September), edit later in Fall 2005 or 2006
> * Conformance Evaluations - put on new site as soon as feasible (in
September), edit later in Fall 2005 or 2006
> * Special Considerations - put on new site as soon as feasible (in
September), edit later in Fall 2005 or 2006
> * [User Evaluation] (new content) - complete & put on new site in Fall
2005
> * Selecting Tools (new content) - put on new site as soon as feasible
(might have minor edits after the sortable tools list is done)
> * Existing Tools (already on new site) - leave version as is on new site
for now,  complete sortable version & put on new site in Fall 2005
> * Review Teams (already on new site) - edit in Fall 2005
> * Reporting Template (already on new site) - edit in Fall 2005
> (Fall 2005 = September, October, and a little of November )
>
> Therefore, we are asking the full EOWG to review the documents below at
this teleconference and see if they can be posted to the new site in the
next week or so. Additional work on these or other evaluation documents may
be done in an Evaluation Task Force later this year &/or next year.
>
> -------
>
> 1. Outreach updates (brief)
> - Please send to EOWG mailing list in advance, note any trends or issues
for EOWG discussion
>
> 2. Reorganization of the Evaluation Resource Suite
>
> See BACKGROUND above. Reminder that the EOWG decided address only open
change log items and serious concerns with the content of the existing
pages, and to hold off on any significant editing and minor issues.
>
> Review questions:
> 2.a. Do these pages sufficiently stand alone?
> - Evaluating Web Accessibility
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/Overview.html
> - Preliminary Review...
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/preliminary.html
> - Conformance Evaluation...
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/conformance.html
> - Special Considerations...
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/considerations.html
> 2.b. In one discussion, we suggested adding to the overview page a small
business case like paragraph about the benefits of evaluating for
accessibility. Is it OK to put that on the list for the next revision (later
in 2005 or in 2006), rather than adding it now?
> 2.c. Are there any serious concerns with the content that we need to
address now? (Keep in mind that we plan to do a major rewrite of the
documents in 2006.)
> 2.d. Are these pages ready to be put on the new site?
>
> 3. Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools
> * latest draft: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools.html
> * changelog:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools-changelog.html
>
> This is a new document (that is, the content has not yet been posted to
main site). See the requirements at:
> http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/selectingtools-changelog.html#about
>
> Review questions:
> 3.a. Does this page fit cleanly with the other pages in the resource
suite?
> 3.b. Are there any issues with the content that we need to address for
this first version?
> 3.c. Is this page ready to be put on the new site?
>
> 4. (if time) Priorities for Translating WAI Documents
> * http://www.w3.org/WAI/translation.html#priorities
>
> For discussion:
> Where do the newly-completed items fit in the lists?
> - Introduction to Web Accessibility (temporarily at the top of the "Top
priority:" list)
> - Essential Components of Web Accessibility  (temporarily near the top of
the "Top priority:" list)
> - Developing a Web Accessibility Business Case for Your Organization
(temporarily near the bottom of the "Introductory and short materials:"
list)
>
> Note: We are not opening up the rest of the WAI Translations document for
edits at this time. Also note that we have on our list to complete plans for
fitting translations into the new site design; however, we won't be getting
to that for another month or more.

> * IRC is supplemental to the call. Some participants do not have IRC. All
substantive comments should be said verbally in the call (not just in IRC).
> * to type a side comment that will _not_ get recorded in the minutes, type
/me comment - e.g.:
> /me hopes Andrew had a good biking trip
> - will come out:     *shawn hopes Andrew had a good biking trip
