Dear accessibility group,

After our call yesterday, George has merged the old accessibility text that
was proposed by Matt with the new text added by Ivan in the branch.
I will also like to mention that in the branch created by Ivan, the
accessibility text is placed at more than one places. The first paragraph
was placed by Ivan in the scope statement, and other part was placed at the
places where the charter talked about coordination with ARIA and WCAG.
We are fine with this split, and the new text snippet is the rewrite of only
the scope statements.

New text for scope statement:
The Working Group will incorporate accessibility considerations into the
Working Group's deliverables. Recommendation-track deliverables  will
contain mechanisms to make Web Publications accessible to a broad range of
readers with different needs and capabilities. This includes general WCAG
and WAI requirements of the W3C; additional extended requirements will be
identified as conformance requirements in the Working Group’s normative
specifications. Profiles of Web Publications may be defined with more
stringent accessibility requirements.

And following is the text in coordination section:
The Digital Publishing Working Group will coordinate with the WCAG Working
Group to integrate accessibility requirements created as part of its
recommendation-track deliverables into generalized technology. One or more
pipeline of the requirements will be maintained to manage diverse turnaround
times of the W3C groups.

With regards

Hello Accessibility Task force,

Because it does not look like the main DPUB group will meet on February 20
at 17 UTC, some people have indicated that we could use this slot to discuss
the accessibility additions.
Therefore, I will call into:
• main DPUB WG WebEx can be used by dialing in: +1-617-324-0000, Access
code: 647 199 851

If others are there fine, if not, nothing lost.

The discussion below has I believe the relevant links from Ivan.

Dear Accessibility group,

We still have the pending task of refining the text for the charter and
proposing the right place for it in the charter.
Lets complete it early next week.
Ivan's proposed positioning of statements in charter is in his following

Avneesh, everybody,

to try to move things ahead… I have made a separate branch (a11y-core) on
the charter repository where I tried to incorporate the proposed text with
the overall charter. This required some stylistic adjustments.

The results are at [1], with [2] showing the changes (forget about the first
block of change, it is a side-effect of a minor spelling mistake that I also
handled while I was at it).

I think it would be better if your proposal would be now discussed within
the framework of the final charter, just to get things moving. I know there
is a time difference involved, but it would still be good if you could give
your comments before the call; I could then initiate a pull request and that
would help the IG as a whole to say yay or nay on these.
