I wrote up the following document about the JIS conformance claim as the
follow-up for the call on the 10th September 2019.


I won't be able to attend the call on Friday. Please feel free to ask me
any questions if you have.


I'm looking  forward to seeing some of you in person next week. Enjoy your
flight to Fukuoka :)

> == Summary ==
> We reviewed the Silver Face to face agenda at :

> Amazon has identified 3 general areas where they have identified "big
> challenges" with conformance:
>    1. Human involvement in testing is much more difficult when pages are
>    highly dynamic.
>    2. There are always parts of a large website that are under
>    construction
>    3. The 3rd party content -- especially content from users that may
>    defy best efforts at accessibility.
> Makoto explained how Japan adapted the WCAG conformance model to address
> some of these issues.  Their conformance model adapts the random sampling
> model from EU.  They test 40 pages, of which 25 should be random.  They
> test only a point in time, using screenshots to show the status of that
> page at that time.  If the pages pass, the site conforms. The conformance
> does not expire, but the date of the testing is publicly visible.  Japan
> does not have a legal requirement for accessibility, so this is market
> driven.  "People will judge."
> Cyborg suggested that we could give incentives for improvement at 3
> levels: self-improvement (improving legacy material), comparison to other
> products of a similar category, and comparison to an ideal standard.
