Hi Lisa and All,

The following is a recommendation under “Use a clear writing style”:

·     “Checking Readability (COGA Techniques 2.5.5)”

We should think about defining “readability”.

The statement “Minimize the cognitive skills required to use the content when there is a known alternative” implies consistency across websites / apps / interfaces. That’s something we should promote, but we can’t assume it exists.

Under “Examples in security:”, “face book” is listed. It’s my impression from Andrew Kirkpatrick that the W3C practice is not to make such references.

I wonder if the voice systems section is outside our purview. I think Janina has raised that point before. For example, the statement “It is avoidable by having 0 as a reserved digit to access a human operator and by using best practices.” As I understand it, it does not refer to web or Voice XML, but to a telephone system.

By “Under WCAG 3.2 Make Web pages appear and operate in predictable ways.”, are we implying that predictability is determined by consistency within the website, or is determined by some consistency across (many) websites?

I think that’s enough feedback for now. Thank you, Lisa, for your work on this.

Hi Folks

Let us review the ARIA proposal in time for TPAC later this month. Please take a look and we will discuss it on Fridays call.

See https://rawgit.com/w3c/coga/master/issue-papers/links-buttons.html

Also WCAG has asked us to have a draft they can review by the end of the month. So also take a look at https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Proposal_for_WCAG

All the best
