Re: Proposal for support personlization AA from John, Chris, Jan and myself

[Jason] Would the “conventional name” be a localized string? “Accessible name” certainly is, but it’s intended ultimately for human consumption, whereas “conventional name” (if I understand your proposal correctly) is not – or, at least, it’s meant to be both human readable and unambiguously identifiable in software.

[AC] I think that would have to be the case, and we would have to be careful about preventing overlap, and possibly re-naming some of them to one-word items.

> [Jason] I think you would have to place constraints on the public vocabulary (e.g., used by AT to enhance accessibility). Otherwise, this version of the proposal runs the risk of requiring authors to add metadata that will never, in fact, solve anybody’s accessibility issues.

Indeed, and this is focused on pre-determined 75 items, it is not open for adding more.

That is something that (I think) should be part of the AAA version of the SC, which is more open.
