Some comments on Avneesh and George’s positions below.

@Avneesh – there is nothing inherent in PWP that assumes static (unchanging) content.  In fact, we have some use cases that specifically call out the ability for a PWP to be updated after publication by both/either the original author/publisher or by the reader/consumer themselves.   Accessibility considerations (not just braille) will need to take post-publication updates into account.

@George – (if things go as planned), then PWP’s of the future will be everything from a holiday card to a memo to presentations, oh, and maybe the occasional professional publication.  The VAST majority of them will NOT be professionally authored and will most likely be distributed in an ad-hoc manner.  In that regard they are much closer (identical?) to web sites – where only those sites that are used in areas impacted by regulation need to comply

[1] Agenda

Write up an initial section that discusses the fact that Ivan raised here

Ivan: "I had the impression that what deborah said could be formulated noncontroversial. There's no reason to make a comparison to the web. What I heard about the stability of the publication which requires accessibility. The industry has faced legal action. Just stating that accessibility is important. I think it's possible to describe in a positive manor - as an introduction to section 8."

What makes braille within a PWP differnet from braille on the web in general?”  Here were the comments form Avneesh and George
Avneesh: "What Ivan says ties up to some technical reasons. The main difference between the web VS epub - dynamic VS static. When we talk about the PWP - the portability, the static documents, the preformatted braille. If there is something in the shape of tree, the braille should tie up. Braille is a type of publication."
George: "The PWP are normally products being sold. Websites that you go to are usually not. The proposed rule with the ADA is that the accessibility requirements for the web & published documents will get closer. We're getting closer to what will be required in the future."
