From: Jeanne Spellman <jspellman@spellmanconsulting.com>
Date: Tue, 3 Sep 2019 14:27:43 -0400
To: Silver Task Force <public-silver@w3.org>
Message-ID: <c28cd685-191d-e9bf-4342-8b66747b961b@spellmanconsulting.com>
== Summary ==

Silver has grouped WCAG success criteria with similar user needs and 
Silver members are writing proposals of the functional needs for each 
group. Two groups have finished writing functional needs for the WCAG to 
Silver Migration Map Outline. They presented their findings  to the 
group for discussion. The links below are direct internal links to that 
heading in the WCAG to Silver Migration Map Outline.

* Charles Hall wrote functional needs forSC 1.2.1 Audio-only and 
Video-only (Prerecorded), SC 1.2.8 Media Alternative (Prerecorded), SC 
1.2.9 Audio-only (Live) 
and SC 1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics, SC 1.4.1 Use of Color. 
   He took the WCAG Understanding document and put the Benefits into a 
standardized language pattern. He used strikeout on the parts that were 
solution-oriented and put those in the Methods section.  We had some 
discussion about using a disability as an example. Charles thought if we 
started listing disabilities, we would define the list so that anything 
we left out would be excluded. Some others thought that having a 
disability as an example (not a list) would make it easier to understand.

* Jan McSorley and colleagues wrote functional needs for SC 1.2.2 
Captions (Prerecorded), SC 1.2.4 Captions (Live), SC 1.2.6 Sign Language 
They used a different language pattern for their work. There was 
discussion about the best pattern for writing the functional needs.  We 
will discuss this more with the entire group on Friday.   Concerns were 
raised about using the phrase "fully understand" would be very difficult 
to achieve, particularly with artistic works.  It was suggested that 
"effectively understand" would be a better term.
