Re: Minutes from User Agent Teleconference for February 15 2007

From: Jan Richards <jan.richards@utoronto.ca>
Date: Tue, 20 Feb 2007 13:57:37 -0500
Message-ID: <45DB44A1.4050001@utoronto.ca>
To: WAI-UA list <w3c-wai-ua@w3.org>

My action items:

(1) ACTION: JR to will do 3e

3e. Improve statement of configuration requirements for resolving 
settings/preference negotiations (e.g. between platform, browser, 
javascript, and author created preferences - accesskeys, ajax stuff)


3e. Better address the interaction of preferences that are set by 
various levels of technology (i.e. platform, browser, content) and by 
different actors (e.g. authors setting accesskeys and creating custom 
controls, browser-users setting keyboard preferences).

(2) ACTION: JA JR Work 3 points at bottom into section 2

1. flash/media-player/PDF - own ui, implements accessibilty api (part of 
infrastructure), provides content , both a model and the view, not part 
of the HTML DOM , embedded object (in HTML), may have own DOM/API, may 
expose public API so others can get at the information


2. UIUC accessibility extension - extension to view (using api to get 
information), consumer of existing model, extents the browser ui to 
provide information to end user. using the DOM


3. web application - own ui (provided by the author, not the model), 
repurposes functioning of standard controls and creates custom controls 
[author must use WEB-ARIA to be accessible], doesn't implement 
native/platform API.

ADD AS 3 a iv.: Web applications using custom controls, not recognized 
by browsers (ARIA will be relevant).

(3) ACTION: JR,JA will do 2a, 2b

2a. Investigate modularizing the document to focus on "base" browsers 
while also addressing voice browsers, speech input, etc. when this is 

2b. Ensure "base" browsers include "core" browser features for people 
needing some accessibility support but who do not use AT (especially 
keyboard access to tooltips, mouseovers, etc.)


2a. Consider modularizing the UAAG 2.0 document. One module would 
address "core" browser capabilities (i.e. features for people needing 
some accessibility support, but who do not use assistive technologies) 
Other modules might address voice browsers, speech input, etc. that, 
while important, are not as relevant to "basic" browsers.
