To the RQTF

Thanks Jason for the links.  Just two things I wanted to follow up on before our meeting tomorrow:

1)    Reading list:  it took a while and some assistance from another academic in fighting the accessibility of the digital library,  but happily I'm now working my way through the following papers:

1.4 A Set of Heuristics for Usable Security and User Authentication
1.13 PassChords: secure multi-touch authentication for blind people
1.14 On the need for different security methods on mobile phones
1.15 Accessibility of CAPTCHA methods and other publications on accessible CAPTCHA
1.17 Toward tactile authentication for blind users
1.18 Freedom to roam: a study of mobile device adoption and accessibility for people with visual and motor disabilities

I'll endeavour to update the wiki shortly.  I'll also have a more detailed read-through of Shadi's fantastic work.

2)    I investigated the possibility of getting some other academics involved with RQTF.  While the meeting time (10-11pm here) tends to scare them off, I've received a related request from a lecturer in the School of Information Systems asking if there is a project that a group of final year students could take on to support our work for the upcoming semester (February-June).  The project would need to be more than reviewing literature, it'd need to be something such a s coding, building a database, assessing industry strategies etc.  I'm not sure if its applicable or what the rules are about students working on W3C activities in relation to their assessment, but if there' is any benefit here I'm happy to coordinate things with thelecturer and the group.  Apologies if this is out of scope.

Thanks everyone,

Subject: Task Force planning and agenda for Wednesday's meeting

Dear colleagues,

This week is an opportunity to build on the informative and productive discussion that has taken place at recent meetings. There are several ways to contribute. For example, Shadi has prepared a wiki page for the APA Working Group that documents accessibility-related use cases and resources associated with the Web of Things. https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/Web_of_Things
If you have any thoughts about the use cases or additional ideas to add, you are welcome to bring them to the meeting for discussion.

The wiki page on which to coordinate the reading of literature relevant to our topics (including, notably, CAPTCHA and authentication) is at https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/task-forces/research-questions/wiki/Literature_Review_Planning
It's available for adding notes about the reading or volunteering to read references that this Task Force has collected. (See the individual wiki pages for the references, indexed on the wiki home page at https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/task-forces/research-questions/wiki/Main_Page).
