Minor suggestions, original is fine if these suggestions are not desired:

 

In addition to the above research, an issue was raised about how to evaluate and measure conformance of large and dynamic web sites which are updated frequently. The working group recently published a draft of HYPERLINK "https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/www.w3.org/TR/accessibility-conformance-challenges/__;!!GqivPVa7Brio!KbPIAU9OHZnGIVl9AU0LMnTfLcf2JIueMVs46nYv_8vjMmqhFE_HyOa9WsIdbNwugQ$"Challenges with Accessibility Guidelines Conformance and Testing, and Approaches for Mitigating Them, to explore and get public comment on these issues. Suggestions in that document are an additional source of input to these requirements.  

 

This wording reads “smoother” to me, but I’m not opposed to the original wording.

 

Regards,

Chuck

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 HYPERLINK "https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/www.w3.org/TR/accessibility-conformance-challenges/__;!!GqivPVa7Brio!KbPIAU9OHZnGIVl9AU0LMnTfLcf2JIueMVs46nYv_8vjMmqhFE_HyOa9WsIdbNwugQ$"Challenges with Accessibility Guidelines Conformance and Testing, and Approaches for Mitigating Them, 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

HYPERLINK "https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/raw.githack.com/w3c/silver/pk_comments/guidelines/*evaluation-scope__;Iw!!GqivPVa7Brio!KbPIAU9OHZnGIVl9AU0LMnTfLcf2JIueMVs46nYv_8vjMmqhFE_HyOa9WsJR8831Sw$"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
