    <scribe> New draft of Requirements:

      [12] https://w3c.github.io/silver/requirements/

    <KimD> The 2.0 abstract does say "WCAG 2.0 success criteria are
    written as testable statements that are not

    <kirkwood> sounds fine to me

    <kirkwood> its nicer and shows depth

    <kirkwood> I like onramp

    <kirkwood> introduction is fine too

    <kirkwood> I don’t see how a standard can not be technology

    <kirkwood> html is a standard though

    <kirkwood> so extend the standard, in essence. i see the core
    be neutral. I see what you are saying

    <kirkwood> makes sens

    <kirkwood> sens/sense

    <kirkwood> Agreed. That is what facilitates innovation.

    <kirkwood> I was just worred about how specify technolgy turns
    people away from innovation

    <mikeCrabb> MikeCrabb : I like the idea of having these
    different 'flavours' of what the silver guidelines could be.
    There would be a general 'core' version and then dependant on
    what technology a person was looking at there could be
    different options that people could enable to see specific

    <mikeCrabb> ... one of the issues with current WCAG is that
    there are Guidelines linking to Success Criteria linking to
    Techniques, so as a user you have to go quite deep in order to
    get to it. So in part, this is just another way of changing the
    view that people see

slide deck with prototypes for a11yTO


      [13] https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1EJN_KTXD0NaGGpNrwAf3i3idA-k1A0QR6Ctbk0re3nE/edit#slide=id.g3ca1179f10_0_45

    <mikeCrabb> jeanne: will be doing a presentation Thursday night
    at accessibility Toronto. Slide No 14 has a new section called

    <mikeCrabb> ... added in what is happening with plain language,
    one for IA. We are looking for 3-6 prototypes for what silver
    can look like and members are looking at existing work for
    ideas to go forward

    <mikeCrabb> ... one thing we haven't talked about is how to get
    silver to be scalable and how to get accessibility experts to
    add their own code/design patterns etc.

    <mikeCrabb> ... this is something that a lot of people got
    excited about last year, but as we're going back this is
    something that we should be talking about too

    <mikeCrabb> ...related to IA as we need to know how this can
    work and see if anyone wants to come and work on it

    <mikeCrabb> ... conformance. Only a proposal, not a decision.

    MikeCrabb: It would be very helpful to have IA prototypes.

    Roy: I could share this with the China Accessibility Community
    Group. THen I could bring their ideas to the Silver Task Force.
    ... there are Community Groups for other countries. Use those
    to contact people who are interested in accessibility.

    Jeanne: Jemma, do you have contacts in the Korean Accessibility
    Community? Could you ask people to work on a prototype?

ideas for China work

    Jeanne: I will look for the draft of the invitation email that
    we worked on and update it.
