San Diego face-to-face meeting problem statements


       [6] https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iu5b2qSEONzJfi4cq62AFu7C8SoP7Zblcz3uremER04/edit?usp=sharing

    Charles: We have identified problem areas based on the research
    that we are addressing with individual problem testing


       [7] https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/task-forces/silver/wiki/Disabilities_for_Inclusion

    Charles: You are conformant only when the the test is done.


       [8] https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iu5b2qSEONzJfi4cq62AFu7C8SoP7Zblcz3uremER04/edit

    Jemma: How do major organizations handle conformance?

    Jennsion: It's complicated. Different products may all be
    represented on one page, and one product could be more
    conformant than another.
    ... we will also have external vendors help us out with audits
    ... Keep in mind, that we don't have to have conformance
    sections anymore by W3C process requirements.
    ... I think that we do need to have some conformance, because
    of legal and regulatory reasons.

    Jemma: Organizations and different types of tech need a way to
    declare conformance

    Kelsey: Isn't it only non-government organizations that are
    required to conform?

    Charles: It depends on the location. Accessibility is a human
    ... there is a large number of lawsuits against businesses in
    the US right now.
    ... the cost is mostly the cost of litigation rather than
    making the actual site accessible.

    Jeanne: I think we also need a problem statement for percentage

    Jemma: I think that is part of Accessibility Supported

    Charles: It could be, but it is different from Accessibility

    Jeanne: If we are going to merge it, I think it belongs more
    with evolving technology, but I think it needs to be its own
    ... WE willl continue on Friday.
