Review Open Action Items (see detail list below)


   1.Update on FTF meeting in April 


The following list of issues includes proposed resolutions for most of the

Issue CR#190: Reduce the scope of 5.1 to say "write access only for that
which you can do through the UI."

URI: http://cmos-eng.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear.html#190

Proposed Resolution: 

Full read access DOM and write to UI controls:

Checkpoint 1. Provide programatic read access to content by conforming to
DOM level 2 core and HTML modules and exporting... [Priority 1] 

Checkpoint 2. Provide programatic read and write to author supplied user
interface controls by conforming to DOM level 2 core and HTML
modules and exporting... [Priority 1]

Other checkpoints affected: Requires modifying new checkpoint for general
access to read only , instead of read write

Issue CR#194 : In a timed presentation does checkpoint 7.2 mean return to
the time that the user was at in a previous MM

URI: http://cmos-eng.rehab.uiuc.edu/ua-issues/issues-linear.html#190

Proposed Resolution for MM:
1. Only for synchronized MM 
2. Includes both space and time

Issue CR#195 (Candidate Recommendation): Problems understanding checkpoint 1.5 


What does this checkpoint mean:

   1.Is this user interface question? 
   2.Is the an API question? 
   3.Is this both? 

Does this require text equivalents or not?

Are text equivalents the best we can do right now?

Does this mean that if you make a sound you do something else too and if
you do something visually you also make a sound?

Currently Proposed Resolution Options:

Option A: Checkpoint 1.5 Ensure that user agent-initiated messages to the
user (e.g., informational messages, warnings, error messages, etc.) are
available through all output channels supported by the user interface. 

Option B: Checkpoint 1.5 Provide a text equivalent for every non-text user
interface component available to the user through the user interface. 

Note: This does not require descriptions of images or sounds, but a
redundent text message of the information the graphic or sound was trying to
convey to the user. 

Issue CR#196: It is unclear to developers how they know they conform to
Checkpoint 6.2: Conform to W3C specifications when they
are appropriate 


Proposed Resolution: 

   1.Change wording "Use and conform to W3C specifications when they are
available and appropriate for a task." 
   2.Add note: Implementing one accessible format 
   3.Add techniques: From ATAG "Specifications that become W3C
Recommendations after an authoring tool's development cycles permit
     input are not considered "available" in time. " 

Issue CR#197: Not clear with the scope of user preferences is in Checkpoint


Proposed Resolution: 

   1.Narrow scope to style and input configuration 
   2.Add technique: Accessible browser project portable configuration file 

Issue CR#198: How much information needs to be provided to satisfy
Checkpoint 8.4 


Proposed Resolution: 

   1.Make current list of items is minimum requirement, plus any that we
may have missed 

Issue CR#199: Poor wording of checkpoint 10.8, it is not clear what the
requirement is to improve accessibility 


Proposed Resolution: 

   1.Ensure that the most frequently used functions are the most easily
activated in the default configuration. 
   2.Add technique: Show operating system conventions 

CR#200: Checkpoint 5.5 on timely exchanges, developers not unclear on how
they know they have satisfied this checkpoint


Proposed Resolutions: 

   1.Merge requirement in with other applicable checkpoints

   2.Ian's pending proposal 

CR#202: User agent configuration to render NOFRAMES content 


Proposed Resolution:
