Update on XR SubGroup - Meetings and Developing User Needs

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. I wanted to give a brief update on the XR Silver SubGroup and how we’re planning on sharing information and collaborating with others during the development of the sample guideline that we are creating. This email has a lot of information in it so I’ve tried my best to signpost relevant parts.

  1.  Meetings
     *   Meeting Time - Meetings for the XR Subgroup take place on Mondays from 09:00-10:00 EST (14:00-15:00 BST) and information on joining this is available at https://www.w3.org/2017/08/telecon-info_silver-xr

     *   Meeting Summaries - Brief summaries of meetings are available on the wiki at the following link: https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/task-forces/silver/wiki/XR_Subgroup_-_Meeting_Summary

  2.  Initial Guideline Development – Our initial guideline for the XR Subgroup is going to look at the use of captioning / audio descriptions inside of an XR environment. We will be following the following process for creating this: User Needs -> Functional Outcomes -> Tests -> Test Passing Methods -> Supporting Documentation -> Guideline Creation
     *   Development of User Needs - We will be using the W3C Silver Github Repo as the main source for gathering user needs and sorting these. The model for this is as follows:

                                                               i.      User Needs are created as Issues inside of the repository. A sample one is here: https://github.com/w3c/silver/issues/112. Issues should be labelled as XR and User Need. A template for creating these with all of the required information will be added to GitHub shortly. We acknowledge that all user needs are important and would encourage others to add to this list so that we have a wide array of needs to consider for future guideline development.

                                                             ii.      User Needs Relevance will be discussed in upcoming meetings to see how they may fit with our initial guideline. Even if it isn’t used in this iteration – it will more than likely be used in the future. A project board has been created and is viewable here to show progress with this: https://github.com/w3c/silver/projects/2

     *   Functional Outcomes and Future Work – We will hopefully be moving onto looking at functional outcomes towards the end of June, I will send out more information when we start this but reporting/management of this is more than likely to be very close to the above

If anyone has any questions / comments / concerns on the above then please get in touch. I know that GitHub sometimes isn’t the easiest piece of software to use so people wish to contribute outside of this, please get in touch via email.

Kind Regards
