<laura> Scoping


<laura> https://github.com/w3c/wcag21/issues/78#issuecomment-292174184



LC: Lots more discussion, and more proposals


<laura> If the technologies being used can achieve the following, text
styles of the page can be overridden as detailed below with no loss of
essential content or functionality.


WD: When WCAG 2.0 was devised, they were not talking about visual access to
devices that can range 40 inches to 4 inches


LC: Need the exception, cannot be a note, needs to be right in the text


WD: Rule needs to be changed before we can write SC that make any sense


JA: There are several proposals on the table, all with slight variations of
wording


LC: Could use help getting to concensus


<shawn> +1 (if I understadn the point)


<AllanJ> steve concerned about giving out for author doing bad things
versus giving out for whole classes of technologies


<shawn> use a technology that supports it, (or else you have to make a
widget or other way to do it)


(thanks Jim - was having trouble capturing)


<Zakim> steverep, you wanted to say author widgets may have unintended
consequences since we haven't specified a full set of requirements


WD: Votes not to let authors off the hook because of technology


SR: Would like to keep it to the user is doing the styling


<Zakim> shawn, you wanted to reply to wayne and to ask question about
providing alt version in conforming technology and to say instead of widget


<AllanJ> sh: if the technology doesen't work, then authors need to provide
an alternate version


LC: Would expect to get objections from that, about needing to be
technology agnostic


WD: That's why word-wrapping was not included in 1.4.4


<ScottM> font families or specific fonts?


<AllanJ> wayne: should be able to come up with 20 fonts (latin) to be
included for the testing/widget


<AllanJ> ... other languages would have to come up with their own sets of
fonts


<Zakim> steverep, you wanted to suggest exception language for technologies


<Zakim> shawn, you wanted to say SC setting the basis - and then more in
Understadning and Techniques


<AllanJ> sh: have to have testable success criteria. then we have
understanding document that explain what the SC means.


WD: in disagreement


<Glenda> Do we need ot move to the other call?


<laura> yes


<AllanJ> if you need to leave we will meet you there


<Glenda> see y’all in the next call


<steverep> Technology exception proposal for adapting text: Content
presented in a technology which does not support changing text syles is
exempt if either (a) a supported technology could not achieve the same
content, or (b) text styles are not applicable to the content


<laura> bye


<shawn> We have said that we will need to document what users needs are met
in WCAG 2.1 (and what not)
