Hello,

I have a suggestion for the requirements wording but wanted to run it by
you before sending it more widely.

*Alternative 3 (After the Meeting)*
In addition to the above research, an issue was raised about how to apply
accessibility evaluation and conformance to large and dynamic web sites
which are updated frequently. The working group recently published a draft
of Challenges with Accessibility Guidelines Conformance and Testing, and
Approaches for Mitigating Them
<https://www.w3.org/TR/accessibility-conformance-challenges/>, to explore
and get public comment on these issues. Suggestions in that document are an
additional source of input to these requirements.

What are your thoughts?

Thank you,

Rachael

Today we discussed some wordsmithing for both an editor's note in WCAG 3
and requirements document. I've tried to capture suggestions here based on
the conversation so we don't lose them.

*WCAG 3.0 Editor's Note*
https://raw.githack.com/w3c/silver/pk_comments/guidelines/#evaluation-scope

*Current Text*
The model presented provides a structure for claiming conformance that can
be built upon to better accommodate dynamic or very frequently updated
content than WCAG 2.x. We are exploring additional approaches to testing
using holistic tests, sampling and/or other alternatives for reaching
conformance in situations where testing all content is not possible. We
also plan to include a definition and concept for substantially conforming
in order to address the potential difficulties presented when testing all
content in large digital products and 3rd party content.

*Discussed in Meeting*
The model presented provides a structure for claiming conformance that can
be built upon to better accommodate dynamic or very frequently updated
content than WCAG 2.x does. We are exploring additional approaches to
testing using holistic tests and/or other alternatives for reaching
conformance in situations where testing is not currently feasible. We also
plan to include a definition and concept for "substantially conforming" in
order to address the potential difficulties presented in 2.x when testing
large digital products and 3rd party content.

*Suggested alternate based on a few more comments in meeting*

*Silver Requirements Large and Dynamic Sites*

<https://www.w3.org/TR/accessibility-conformance-challenges/> *from
additional contributors*. Suggestions in that document are an additional

*Alternative 2*
In addition to the above research, an issue was raised about how to apply
accessibility evaluation and conformance to large and dynamic web sites
which are updated frequently. *This led to volunteers from the working
group to develop *Challenges with Accessibility Guidelines Conformance and
Testing, and Approaches for Mitigating Them
<https://www.w3.org/TR/accessibility-conformance-challenges/>. Suggestions
in that document are an additional source of input to these requirements.
