** preliminary agenda for HTML-A11Y Task Force Telecon 04 February 2010

Meeting: HTML-A11Y telecon
Chair: MikeSmith
agenda: this
agenda+ Actions Review <- http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/track/actions/open
agenda+ status on face-to-face meeting plan
agenda+ review bugs with keywords "a11y" + "media" and determine actions to take
agenda+ New Business
agenda+ be done

Before the meeting, take a look at the list of bugzilla bugs that have both the
keyword "a11y" and the keyword "media":


The following two bugs have already been determined by the TF facilitators to
be possible especially-high priorities:

5758	insufficient accessibility fallback for <audio> or <video>
8187	Section 4.8.7 on video makes no reference to audio description

The remaining four bugs from the list are tentatively being considered lower
priorities (pending discussion with the TF).

8658	Availability of captions or additional audio tracks
8657	Allow UA to reload fallback content if it fails to load
8659	Media events to indicate captions and audio descriptions
8736	Decision to playback for media should be left to the user agent

A goal for the meeting should be that we have volunteers committed to following
up at least on bugs 5758 and 8187, and an initial plan of action decided upon
on how to proceed with them.

Reference: http://www.w3.org/Guide/1998/08/teleconference-calendar.html#s_273

2010-02-04, 16:00Z (for 60 minutes)
Dial the Zakim bridge at one of the following three telephone numbers:
+1 (617) 761-6200 (This is a USA number).
+ (This is a French number)
+44.117.370.6152 (This is a UK number)
You should be prompted for a pass code, this is 2119# (A11Y#)

IRC: server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665, channel: #html-a11y.

During the conference you can manage your participation with Zakim
commands as follows:
   61# to mute yourself
   60# to unMute yourself
   41# to raise your hand (enter speaking queue)
   40# to lower your hand (exit speaking queue)

The system acknowledges these commands with a rapid, three-tone
confirmation.  Mobile phone users especially should use the mute  
if they don't have a mute function in their phone.  But the hand-raising
function is a good idea for anyone not using IRC.

* IRC access

     There will also be an IRC channel available. The server is  
     the port number is 6665 (note this is not the normal default) and 
the channel is #html-a11y.

* Gregory Rosmaita's scribing and participation tips
