[chatzilla@] has quit [Ping timeout][20:58] <jallan> greg:
details of how to support this are in other SC. 411 may be considered
redundant...or[20:58] == greg [chatzilla@] has joined
#ua[20:58] <jallan> kim: it sets the stage.[20:58] <greg> Kelly is
concerned that 4.1.1 Platform Accessibility Architecture is
vague.[20:59] <greg> Greg says it could b considered redundant to the
other 4.1.x that require platform accessibility API usage.[21:00]
<Jan> FYI: ATAG2 says: A.1.2.2 Platform Accessibility Services:
Non-web-based authoring tools implement communication with platform
accessibility services. (Level A)[21:00] <jallan> jim asks about
current a11y architecture support in current browsers[21:00] <jallan>
411 OK[21:01] <jallan> jim +1 to ATAG communication[21:01] == Ruinan
[sunruinan@] has joined #ua[21:03] <jallan> js: web-based
players (embedded) may be talking to the a11y arch. directly[21:03]
<Jan> Note: In ATAG 2.0, some success criteria require authoring tools
to make certain information programmatically determinable. In cases
where the platform lacks a platform accessibility service, these
success criteria are to be considered "not applicable". Conformance
claims are optional, but any claim that is made must record the
platform and the fact that the platform does not include a...[21:03]
<jallan> greg: in ISO scoped the beginning of this section. If you are
on a platform that does not have an a11y arch. then this does not
apply[21:03] <Jan> ...platform accessibility service.[21:04] <greg>
ISO 9241-171 8.5.1 General: The provisions in this section are
intended to provide the information and programmatic access needed by
assistive technologies to help users access and use software. These
provisions only apply to systems that allow installation of assistive
technology or where AT will be installed in conjunction with the
software. They are not applicable to closed systems (see 7.2).[21:06]
<jallan> make it a no add a scoping note at the top of the
document.[21:07] <greg> General scoping/exception for SC that are not
relevant to your platform (e.g. color on audio output, AT compat on
closed systems).[21:07] <jallan> kf: where the platform support an
platform a11y api then use it, if you don't support it you must make
one.[21:08] <jallan> action: kelly to write a scoping NOTE about

platforms may have these but called other names, or the may have
others that are also necessary[21:11] <jallan> kf: the list may need

how to use it[21:13] <jallan> gl: goal - ua and generated
content...should be in the dom, other spec were ambigious[21:13]

does not say this.[21:37] <jallan> js: john are there nested UA in
mobile[21:37] <greg> that is, I think things have to implemented this
way regardless of accessibility concerns.[21:38] <jallan> john: yes,
moving toward nested UA.[21:39] <jallan> john: flash, get out of UA,
open new app (Flash) then runs content. if you close browser, the
flash wont close[21:39] <jallan> jan: there are implementations that
this is not true.[21:39] <jallan> discussion 421-3[21:40] <jallan> gl:

We might end  up moving 4.2.2 Retrieve Focus but note it's not just
about keyboard.[21:45] <jallan> topic: 511 non-web-based

interfaces follow user interface accessibility guidelines for the

them[21:47] <jallan> kelly: borrow ATAG language[21:47] <Jan> A.1.2.1

<jallan> john: is this really necessary[21:49] <jallan> gl: windows
a11y guidelines say have underline letters, if a UA doesn't do this,
you are getting a pessimal experience[21:50] <jallan> john: it is
users choice to install a browser.[21:51] <jallan> john: the way it is
written, sounds like it could apply to non UAs[21:51] <jeanne>
rrsagent, do not start a new log [at midnight][21:51] <RRSAgent> I'm
logging. I don't understand 'do not start a new log [at midnight]',
jeanne.  Try /msg RRSAgent help[21:51] <jallan> jan: we have a
definition of a UA[21:53] <jallan> shadi: definition of UA. big
concerns. Inherited from WCAG...UA anything that renders
webcontent...webcontent is anything that is rendered in a
browser[21:53] <jallan> ... definition of extension and AT are very
similar[21:53] <jallan> definitions are not clear.[21:54] <jallan> 3
types of user agents[21:54] <greg> John has a valid concern that our
SC should not prevent the user from getting the experience they want,
e.g. if the user wants a browser that gives a more Mac-like experience
even on Windows (e.g. no underlined access keys) they should be able
to have that. Thus we use a lot of language about user choice rather
than requiring "always" behaviors.[21:54] <jallan> jan: we may decide,
scope it to only be desktop[21:54] <jallan> shadi: why[21:55] <jallan>
jan: don't need web-based UA, because they fall under WCAG[21:56]
<jallan> shadi: functional requirements need to be the same.[21:57] ==
Ruinan [sunruinan@] has quit [Quit: Ruinan][21:57]
<jallan> shadi: AT that renders web content to help the user[21:57]
<jallan> kelly: webanywhere,[21:58] <jallan> shadi: NPII, more
webbased tools, part of the tools that will be used[21:58] <jallan>
shadi: the more definitions you have the more stuff can fall between
the cracks[21:59] <jallan> jan: UAAG has 100+ SC, don't expect from
every browser.[21:59] == chsiao [chatzilla@] has quit
[Ping timeout][21:59] <jallan> shadi: web-based UA, interaction is not
passed directly from the UA[22:01] <greg> Jim: notes that single
purpose airline scheduling apps on his phone talks via internet to a
specific server to get specific information, displays a very limited
set of data, is it a user agent? Some say yes, some no it's a web
service.[22:02] == Ruinan [sunruinan@] has joined

where we might want our standard to take precedence over other cited
standards would be that we may say generated content be available
through the DOM where CSS says it should not be.[22:13] <jallan> john:

platform a11y requirements.[22:14] == jeanne [jeanne@]

regardless of rules.[22:15] <jallan> john: Facebook lock look and feel
across all platforms[22:16] <jallan> jan: filling gap with our own
generic guidelines. we are a general purpose software

#ua[22:17] <jallan> kf: jan, you said you could meed UAAG but still
have an inaccessible browser...example[22:18] <greg> Greg: An example
of where this SC is useful would be a mobile platform that said all
apps should show a magnified view of where the user is touching text
because it's necessary for people whose vision is not terribly acute.
If a browser fails to do that so it's not usable by people with low or
even moderate vision, yet it doesn't violate any other aspect of UAAG,
should it pass UAAG?[22:18] <jallan> jan: don't use only color to
convey info. this is true for webbased UA, but we push this off to the
platform a11y spec...it is not in UAAG for desktop UA[22:20] <jallan>

success criteria.[22:25] <greg> Greg: I believe it's not as clear as
it could be that these are intended to apply to any aspect of a UA's
UI that's implemented using web technologies, whether the UA is
web-based or native to the platform.[22:25] <greg> It conflates the
two concepts of web-based UI and web-based UA.[22:27] <greg> We agree

android, hooks in to emulator[23:34] <jallan> mh: webspeak, we named
every action available in the browser, and allowed the user to choose
a mechanism to cause them to happen[23:34] <jallan> kf: OFFICE, expose
all actions, user defines how they are activated.[23:35] <jallan> mh:
UA must expose this low level to the user/AT/Extensions[23:36]
<jallan> jr: this is called the standard input method on
android.[23:36] <jallan> kf: how do we make this SC say what we want
it say.[23:38] <jallan> mh: we need some statement that there is some
api or something that all the functions are allowed and expose to the
user so whatever input method the user wants can activate the
functions[23:39] <jallan> jr: these are the classes of things that the
platform allows, need to work in the UA,[23:39] <jallan> gl: need an
API to expose/invoke actions/intentions available in the OS to the UA

expose a list of its functions,,, because most of the UA don't know
all of their functions[23:41] <jallan> ... thsi is hard because the
software is not architected that way.  [23:42] <jallan> gl: there is a

voice and touch.[23:44] <jallan> ... need something low level, very
important.[23:45] <jallan> kf: system know key or mouse event, they
are separate....bubbling up the software decides what needs happen on
the UI[23:45] <greg> There needs to be a lowest common denominator
interface for alternative input devices or software to drive ANY
software or device. In the past the keyboard interface, discrete
low-level commands, have been used for this.[23:45] <jallan> kp: very
complicated.[23:46] <jallan> kf: third layer...programmatic
actions....send button activate method[23:47] <jallan> gl: need to
know what has been standardized on.[23:48] <jallan> jim: seems very
low level in the OS. we don't care and have no control over what the
OS is doing, just need to make sure the UA follows them and exposed to
the user and user AT/extensions/etc[23:49] <jallan> js: suggests wiki
to collect use cases make sure we have cover what is needed, then
review SC to make sure they are covered[23:50] <jallan> kp: can use to

underlying function requires input that depends on the path of the

Note 1: This success criterion does imply the presence of a
conventional keyboard. Keyboard interfaces are platform-level
mechanisms that enable operation via a range of input methods and
assistive technologies, such as touch gestures, voice input,
single-switch input, conventional keyboards, etc. Therefore, this
success criterion does not forbid and should not discourage providing
mouse...[01:16] <AllanJ> ...and/or touch input in addition to keyboard
interface operation.[01:16] <AllanJ> Note 2: The path exception
relates to the underlying function, not the input technique. For
example, if using handwriting to enter text, the input technique
(handwriting) requires path-dependent input, but the underlying
function (text input) does not. The path exception encompasses other
input variables that are continuously sampled from pointing devices,
including pressure, speed, and angle.[01:17] <greg> I still maintain
that things that can be done with the keyboard but that rely on the

user interface that supports keyboard operation, a mode of operation
shall be provided that allows all functions that do not require a

is the generic case. even with Jan's rewording...how do you test 'all
functions'[01:32] <greg> My concern is that the EU wording would allow
a UA on a mainstream desktop GUI to be compliant even if it requires a
mouse for command and control, by claiming that the user can fall back
on the MouseKeys feature in the OS that lets the user emulate mouse
input using the keyboard.[01:32] <AllanJ>

access. (Level AA)[03:40] <greg> Greg: Seems too low a bar, that the
UA need only have two shortcut keys to pass.[03:41] <greg> Kim, Jim,
Kelly all approve that at Level A.[03:42] <greg> Greg unhappy, but
will not object.[03:42] <greg> topic: 2.1.9 Allow Override of User
Interface Keyboard Commands[03:43] <greg> This is similar to 2.1.4 but
adds requires single-key and key-plus-modifier, and is AA instead of
A.[03:44] <greg> Keeping it as is.[03:44] <greg> topic: 2.2.1
Sequential Navigation Between Elements[03:45] <greg> OK.[03:45] <greg>
topic: 2.2.2 Sequential Navigation Between Viewports[03:46] <greg>
Jan: This assumes that all viewports can take focus, and is Level A.
Could this be combined by the 2.1.3 Viewport Navigation?[03:47] <greg>
Jan: Change to "all viewports" to make it require focusabiity of all
viewports.[03:47] <greg> Jan: So many SC, if can be combined would
prefer them to be.[03:49] <Jan> Action: JR to see if 2.1.3 and 2.2.2
can be combined.[03:49]  * trackbot noticed an ACTION. Trying to
create it.[03:49]  * RRSAgent records action 3[03:49] <@trackbot>
Created ACTION-654 - See if 2.1.3 and 2.2.2 can be combined. [on Jan
Richards - due 2011-11-11].[03:50] <greg> That is, fold 2.1.3 into
2.2.2 and add a reference in 2.1 to 2.2.2.[03:51] <Jan> (folding 2.1.3
into 2.2.2 and make sure to say ALL viewports)[03:51] <greg> topic:
2.2.3 Default Navigation Order[03:52] <greg> Jan: Should this be the
default, or could this be optional?[03:54] <AllanJ> If the author has
not specified a navigation order, the default sequential navigation
order is document order. (Level A)[03:54] <greg> OK.[03:55] <greg>
topic: 2.2.4 Options for Wrapping in Navigation[03:55] <greg> Jan
likes, Kelly dislikes.[03:57] <greg> Kelly finds wording
confusing.[03:58] <Jan> 2.2.4 Options for Wrapping in Navigation: The
user can have sequential navigation prevent wrapping or receive
feedback when wrapping. (Level AA)[03:59] <greg> Kelly: When user
interaction with web content causes focus wrapping, the user agent
allows the user to either (a) tell them it wrapped or (b) prevent the
wrapping.[04:00] <greg> Kelly feels strongly it should be in content
only, not UA UI.[04:00] <jeanne> When user interaction with web
content causes focus wrapping, the user can haveprevent wrapping or
the user can receive feedback when wrapping. (Level AA)[04:01] <greg>
Greg agrees that if the platform convention is for menus to wrap
silently, then UA menus can't be expected to violate that.[04:01]
<mhakkinen> What if ua menus or dialogs are web content?[04:02] <greg>
Kelly: This is about wrapping at end of the document, not horizontal
wrapping between table rows and the like.[04:02] <mhakkinen> Chrome
settings, for example[04:03] <greg> Greg: Wrapping is not going to the
next row, but going back to the beginning of the same row.[04:03]
<mhakkinen> So ua has to know its own content even though AT
doesn't[04:05] <greg> Greg: What we mean is when sequential navigation
within a set of elements tries to move beyond the last element (or
first when navigating in reverse order)...[04:05] <greg> Kelly: It's
end of page.[04:06] <greg> Greg: Page or other set of elements that
normally wrap in this browser.[04:06] <jeanne> When user interaction
with web content causes focus wrapping at the end of the content or
whenever sequential navigation within a set of elements reaches the
last element, the user can prevent wrapping or the user can receive
feedback when wrapping. (Level AA)[04:06] <greg> Postponing for
further discussion later.[04:11] <greg> topic: 2.3.1 Direct Navigation
to Important Elements[04:12] <greg> What is "important'
elements?[04:12] <greg> Greg: we say the user can customize what they
consider important elements.[04:12] <greg> Rich: make sure ARIA
Landmarks are included.[04:13] <greg> Rich: All content required to be
in at least one landmark region so nothing orphaned.[04:14] <greg>
Related to 1.10.3 Configure Elements for Sequential Navigation.[04:15]
<greg> Jeanne reads definition of Important Elements from the
glossary.[04:15] <jeanne> This specification intentionally does not
identify which "important elements" must be navigable because this
will vary by specification. What constitutes "efficient navigation"
may depend on a number of factors as well, including the "shape" of
content (e.g. sequential navigation of long lists is not efficient)
and desired granularity (e.g. among tables, then among the cells of a
given table).[04:15] <jeanne> Refer to the Implementing document
[Implementing UAAG 2.0] for information about identifying and
navigating important elements. @@ Editors' Note: Update links[04:15]
<greg> Jan: 2.5.7 is Configure Elements for Structural Navigation is
AAA.[04:16] <greg> 2.3.1 is Level A without the ability to
customize.[04:16] <greg> The example is about numbering
hyperlinks.[04:16] <greg> Jan: To reach A every UA needs to have
Mouseless Browsing built in or available in add-on?[04:17] <greg>
Kelly: Feels it shouldn't be Level A.[04:18] <greg> Kim: Important for
voice input.[04:18] <greg> Rich: Important for low vision.[04:18]
<greg> Kelly: Should do exercise of prioritizing our Level A
SC.[04:18] <greg> Kelly: This used to be common, e.g. Lynx.[04:19]
<AllanJ> action: Jallan to create a list of all A SC for
prioritization discussion on Thursday[04:19]  * RRSAgent records
action 4[04:19]  * trackbot noticed an ACTION. Trying to create
it.[04:19] <@trackbot> Created ACTION-655 - Create a list of all A SC
for prioritization discussion on Thursday [on Jim Allan - due
2011-11-11].[04:19] <greg> Kelly: Some browsers let you enter mode
where it searches as you type.[04:20] <greg> Agreement to keep this
one.[04:20] <greg> topic: 2.3.2 Present Direct Commands in Rendered
Content[04:21] <greg> Easier to read with slight change: "The user can
have any recognized direct commands in rendered content (e.g.
accesskey) be presented with their associated elements. (Level
A)"[04:23] <greg> Kelly: "presented with" is too vague, e.g. show
accesskey if you hover over it.[04:23] <greg> Jeanne: then you fail
the requirement for keyboard access to all features.[04:23] <greg>
Kelly: AAA[04:23] <greg> Jan: 2.3.1 useless without 2.3.2.[04:25]
<greg> Kelly: 2.3.1 is UA added, 2.3.2 is about
author-supplied.[04:25] <greg> Greg: Could be clarified by adding
wording from 2.3.2 into 2.3.1.[04:26] <greg> Jan noted duplication of
several SC in this section.[04:29] <greg> Greg: Errors in merging
documents. Want to check which version Greg and Kim submitted.[04:32]
<greg> action: Greg and Kim to reconcile duplications of 2.3.2, 2.3.x
and 2.3.4 all about presenting direct commands in content[04:32]  *
trackbot noticed an ACTION. Trying to create it.[04:32]  * RRSAgent
records action 5[04:32] <@trackbot> Created ACTION-656 - And Kim to
reconcile duplications of 2.3.2, 2.3.x and 2.3.4 all about presenting
direct commands in content [on Greg Lowney - due 2011-11-11].[04:34]
<greg> topic: 2.3.3 Direct activation[04:34] == mhakkinen
[mth@] has quit [Quit: Bye][04:36] == mth
[mth@] has joined #ua[04:37] <greg> Confusion over
difference between this and 2.3.1; 2.3.1 is about important elements
(A), while 2.3.3 is about ALL operable elements (AA)[04:38] <greg>
2.3.3 is ambiguous about whether navigate to and activate needs to be
a single operation.[04:38] <greg> Kelly: 2.3 is all confusing.[04:39]
<Jan> also look at possible duplication: 2.1.4 Specify preferred
keystrokes; 2.3.5 Allow Override of Accesskeys[04:41] <greg> Greg and
Kim will review all of 2.3.[04:43] <greg> Agreement to suspend the SC
review at this point, as only 17 minutes remain.[04:47] <greg>
