level A are those that serve that are completely or serious blocked from
accessing information and is technically feasible to do.

level AA - go to wcag 1 definition

what is difference between technically feasible versus undue burden

kf: are we going to define undue burden...more than one developer, x% of
cost based on market conditions, ???

kp: get real world examples from companies.

from wcag

trackbot start meeting

trackbot, start meeting

Teleconference

[Priority 1]

A Web content developer must satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or
more groups will find it impossible to access information in the document.
Satisfying this checkpoint is a basic requirement for some groups to be
able to use Web documents.

[Priority 2]

A Web content developer should satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or
more groups will find it difficult to access information in the document.
Satisfying this checkpoint will remove significant barriers to accessing
Web documents.

[Priority 3]

A Web content developer may address this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more
groups will find it somewhat difficult to access information in the
document. Satisfying this checkpoint will improve access to Web documents.

kf: need to have some level of thought behind our definitions.

kp: to many...undue burden is anything I don't want to do.
... not testable, not normative
... anonymous realworld examples.

A levels reasonable amount of time. hours to days, AA level days to weeks,
AAA level weeks to months to year

graduate student projects to write extensions - keep track of hours for
eamples

js: want something that is easy to explain and is understandable

a company has x amount of developer hours available in a year. they have
set as a policy to dedicate 5% of their time to accessibility. and have
divided up the task to include several things that can be completed this
year (before the next release) and work on some longer term items
iteratively improving the accessibility of thier browser

things we need to work on

levels, @@, action items.
