Hey folks,

Here are the minutes to today's meeting:
https://www.w3.org/2020/11/05-wcag-act-minutes.html

In summary, the group discussed how to handle scenarios where browsers /
screen readers behave differently from the specifications. The group was in
full agreement that in the case where there is a specification, the
specification should be used. Where there are known differences between
browsers and specifications, a decision will need to be made on whether to
include test cases that pass something that fails in a browser (or vise
versa). This should allow implementors some flexibility on whether they
pass or fail cases with known accessibility support issues. The ACT Task
Force will come up with a process by which they can answer questions about
whether to include or exclude test cases with known accessibility support
issues.

Thanks to all who attended! I think this is an important decision that
would have taken us weeks to deal with otherwise. Much appreciated.
