Review submitted Techniques

    JOC: A couple of techiques submitted
    ... I have started a couple of draft techniques


       [7] http://trace.wisc.edu/wcag_wiki/index.php?title=Using_the_html5_required_attribute_to_indicate_that_a_value_is_required_in_an_input_field

Review of HTML5 Required Technique (URI above)

    LGR: Trace wiki - will be there until it stops working
    ... better to use the w3c wiki - but if you have credetntials can
    use it

    JOC: be aware that not everyone can edit on the trace wiki

    DT: Just used this because this is what I had available
    ... just let me know where tyo transfer it to

    JOC: Straightforward technique

    DM: Whole user agent support issue
    ... There are a whole bunch of different ways of specifying required
    ... want a few examples rather than one

    JN: as long as our exmaples are correct I think that is enough
    ... isn it enough to link to the spec?
    ... I think we should use best practice

    LGR: don't want to jst refer to the spec

    JOC: Both syntaxes are correct

    Adam: can't be comprehensive - but as developers are used to using
    values for their attributes may want to add this here

    JOC: issue of multiple syntaxes is going to come up again

    Adam: If using required by iteslf should also include the other

    required is the same as required="true" which equals
    required="false" which equals required=0

    Adam: required="required" seems to be used

    <Loretta>  Is this the right link?

       [8] http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#attr-select-required

    LGR: asking about relationship to aria-required

    JN: I think if in the same techiqiue we confuse the user aganet


       [9] http://john.foliot.ca/required-inputs/

    ??: Is this AT only or all user agents?

    JOC: some are pretty accessible

    LGR: what is is supposed to be doing according to the spec?

    JOC: in some places the spec defines the user experience but on
    other places it doesn't

    LGR: wouldn't expect to define the visual experience but would
    perhaps expect that if trying to submit it would fail


      [10] http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-input-element-attributes.html#the-required-attribute


      [11] http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-microsyntaxes.html#boolean-attribute

    JN: what are we going to do for boolean attributes in html5? Both
    styles or one?

    JOC: I think we should think about it a little more

    <David>  [12]http://www.eramp.com/david/html5/required.html

      [12] http://www.eramp.com/david/html5/required.html

    LGR: we should include the link to the correct place in the spec but
    should also help people in plain english
    ... Is it clear what kind of modifications need doing?

    DT: have a few notes about UA support, test procedure and ....

    LGR: needs some work on the test prodedure

    Adam: we assume that the presence of the required attribute
    satisfies the success criteria

    DT: poerhaps take out step number 2

    <David>  [13]http://www.eramp.com/david/html5/html5_forms.html

      [13] http://www.eramp.com/david/html5/html5_forms.html

    JN: depends what success criteria you are trying to meet

    LGR: This could also be a 3.3.2 techique with user agent notes

    <Loretta>  But 3.3.2 would still need a label, in addition.

    LGR: sounding less like a 3.3.2 candidate even for partial

    Adam: would like to see more visual discussion

    JOC: can add CSS to the field.

    LGR: could do a sufficient technique for this - need to look at H90

    <Loretta>  [14]http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/H90.html could be a
    model for how to write a 3.2.2 technique.

      [14] http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/H90.html

    <Loretta>  It would need CSS and label as well as required attribute.

    LGR: H90 discusses what the group thought was minimally acceptable

    <Loretta>  For each indicator of required status that is not provided
    in text, check that the meaning of the indicator is explained before
    the form control that uses it.

    LGR: concern is that * is easy to miss

    JOC: I like having the text required in the label

    JN: I think this should be a seperate technique

    LGR: agree
