EOWG: Agenda for 16 February 2007 Teleconference

Dear EOWG Participants:

An agenda and calling logistics for our 16 February 2007 teleconference follow.

Time:    8:30am - 10:30am U.S. Eastern Time. For other time zones see:
Bridge:  +1.617.761.6200, code: EOWG# (3694#)
IRC:     Channel: #eo, server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665
Scribe:  See http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/2003/scribes.html


We will be having some general discussion on several topics during this call:

1. Update and follow-up from EOWG face-to-face and last week's 
teleconference discussions on "WCAG Basic"/"Web ABC"/"WCAG-on-the-Street".

* What follow up thoughts do you have after last week's discussion?

One idea is to:
a. Provide more support to help WCAG WG simplify/clarify the language in 
the WCAG 2.0 guidelines and success criteria as much as is feasible, 
without losing the technical specificity.
b. Call the Quick Reference something else, and add to it the information 
and options described below.
c. Provide options (probably with checkboxes) so that people can hide 
information that is not relevant to them if their Web site doesn't have 
multimedia, flashing or blinking content, time-outs or timed events, forms 
for user input, or such.
c. Add to it brief notes that are very simple explanations where needed -- 
that is, where the actual WCAG wording needs to be kept as is, and a little 
(1-3 sentences) more information is particularly helpful. For example, 
perhaps explaining "programmatically determined" without making people 
follow the link to the glossary; and make it so people can turn on or off 
the Notes with a checkbox.

* How would the approach above meet the goals we're already mentioned?

* How would this address concerns with previous approaches? Are there any 
new concerns with this approach?

* What would be the strengths and limitations of this approach?

* What are your experiences with the WCAG 2.0 Quick Reference? What do you 
hear about others' experiences with the Quick Reference?
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/

* What might this new thing be called?

2. EOWG teleconference schedule and upcoming work with WCAG 2.0 Working Draft

3. Trends and Issues
* Please send notes to the EOWG mailing list before the call.

IRC reminders and tips:
- IRC is supplemental to the call. Some participants do not have IRC. All 
substantive comments should be said verbally in the call (not just in IRC).
- to type a side comment that will _not_ get recorded in the minutes, type 
/me comment - e.g.:
/me hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
will come out:
*shawn hopes everyone had pleasant holidays
