Teleconference 2015-01-29, 16:00 - 17:00 h (CET)

Participants: Wilco (chair), Sharon, Frank, Kamyar, Annika (scribe)

ITEM 1: Action items
See updated list in the wiki [1].

Sharon: Reach out to WCAG WG. WCAG WG is currently promoting the WCAG 
EM. Shadi would like to help and asks for suggestions how to establish a 
connection between auto-wcag and WCAG WG.

Wilco: The current focus auto-wcag is to develop tests. The long term 
objective is to guide the process of tool development and to create a 
distinction between expert and non-expert tests.

Sharon: There is the new tool list at WAI [2]. Anyone can submit 
information about a tool.

Wilco: Would like to start a dialog with tool developers.

Sharon: It's hard to get collaboration among the W3C groups. Will talk 
to Eric Eggert (in WCAG WG). We could also use specific wiki pages to 
initiate a discussion, e.g. the accessibility support page [3].

Wilco: Maybe we can present auto-wcag at EOWG.

Sharon: Yes, we can ask to put it on the agenda for 2015-02-13.

Annika: We also have two W4A papesr which provide a good intro to auto-wcag.

Wilco: Yes, we can discuss how to make use of the material next week.

ITEM 2: Review SC1-1-1-text-alternative [4]

Discussion of Wilco's comments:
* Add step to check images contained in links.
* Add heading "Assertor requirements". The manual steps of this test can 
only be done by sighted users.
* Add step to handle groups of images where the first image has a 
textual alternative.
* Are the manual steps context-sensitive? - No. Change the help text in 
Step 6.
* What about decorative images which have a textual alternative? (e.g. 
spacer images). This could be added in the help text of step 6.
* Add step to catch F38 [5].

Sharon: Look at WAI images tutorial [6].

Descision: If a test obviously requires sighted users, this is added 
unter "assertor assumptions".
Wilco: Only hearing and sight.

Annika's comments will be discussed next week.

ITEM 5: Final comments
