It looks really clear and is making we realise we need these sorts of icons to be generally made available with symbol sets as there may be some things such as a paper clip on ARASAAC for an attachment in an email (http://tinyurl.com/qjvqm23) but not all are suitable for messages such as 'forward' http://tinyurl.com/pdrm7w3!

But then arrows are an issue because they tend to be used to indicate past and future tense or a direction obviously and these change depending on the language so past in English may be going from the right side of the page to the left but that is future in Arabic!    So forward or backward arrows could have another meaning for AAC users.  But I think at this level maybe we can just assume they will be different arrows that a user at this level can cope with, as they are at the stage of writing rather than using symbols for everything.

Hope that makes sense and I apologise for rambling.

Subject: Action Item # 23: Proof of Concept

Hi Lisa and All,

As you know, I agreed to perform Action Item #23, "Make sample symbol set and text tool tips for link types and buttons types from https://w3c.github.io/coga/issue-papers/links-buttons.html".

As I explained during our last conference call, I am willing to help with creating a proof of concept. I think the steps for a proof of concept should be the following.

1)       Define a use case.

2)       Choose a sample set of ARIA buttons or links from our adaptable links and buttons page at https://w3c.github.io/coga/issue-papers/links-buttons.html.

3)       For each button or link:

a.create a contextually-relevant tool tip with simple text (and/or a symbol);

b.select or create a symbol; and

c.reference the symbol's copyright(s)

4)       Associate the above with a JSON script or scripts.

The following is my attempt at a proof of concept. I have completed steps 1, 2, & 3. Ayelet and Chaohai will complete step 4.
