21 June 2012 Agenda ADDITIONS ==========================

From: Gregg Vanderheiden <gv@trace.wisc.edu>
Date: Wed, 20 Jun 2012 07:19:12 +0200
To: GLWAI Guidelines WG org <w3c-wai-gl@w3.org>
Message-id: <F89D90A3-3823-4F9D-B0FF-D058D64F9D89@trace.wisc.edu>
We will also have two additional topics on the agenda

1)   Does WCAG allow AT to be used to meet the SC  (other than 
1.4.4 Resize text: Except for captions and images of text, text can be resized without assistive technology up to 200 percent without loss of content or functionality. (Level AA)
If AT were not allowed to be used to meet the success criteria  -- then why would this one specify that it had to happen without AT?
I had always thought that we specifically wrote WCAG so that what authors had to do would decrease over time as user agents (including AT) had greater capabilities. 

But the question was raised so I think it is good for us to look carefully at our assumptions and be sure.  And if sure - make the statement clear in the understanding doc somewhere (if not already there?)

2)  We have draft comments on a a mapping of PDF/UA  (a draft ISO standard for PDF accessibility) to WCAG that have been done.  We would like to have the WG comment on them, revise, and send on to the PDF/UA group.   There is more work to do but we would like to get started.    We will post a meeting prep survey soon but since it is short notice wanted to give you a heads up. 

the Draft for your review is attached.
