WCAG 2.0 Presentation Comments - Re: EOWG: Material for review, No teleconference 3 August

A few questions about the slide order....

Slide 15: More Precisely Testable
Slide 16: WCAG 2.0  has principles
Slide 17: The POUR Acronym
Slide 18: WCAG 2.0 has Success Criteria
Slide 19: Back to Testability

What does the structure of WCAG 2.0 (principles, success criteria) have to do with it being testable?

Instead of sticking slides 16-18 in the middle of testability, what about making it the first "What does WCAG 2.0 give you" point?  It could be, "The structure is easier to understand."  After you make that intro point, dive into the fact that WCAG 2.0 is testable.

Slide 22: WCAG 2.0 is Flexible
Slide 23: WCAG 2.0 is normative
Slide 24: Techniques are informative
Slide 25: WCAG 2.0 is Flexible.

I don't get what slide 23-24 have to do with WCAG 2.0 being more flexible.  

Is it because WCAG 2.0 is more high level and the implementation stuff is in the techniques that WCAG 2.0 (the normative document) can be applied to all technologies (slide 30)?

I thought flexibility meant that it gave developers more wiggle room for how they created their sites (like slide 26).

For slides 27-29, instead of just mentioning the fact that there is scripting techniques or information about WAI ARIA, can we mention what its going to do for people?  How is it going to make their lives easier?

For scripting techniques, it's going to fill this big gaping void where developers want to know "how do I make my javascript/ajaxy site more accessible?"  This is HUGE.  This would be a great one for the "Extensive supporting materials,practical implementation guidance" section.

For WAI ARIA, how does it fit into the message of WCAG 2.0?

EOWG folks,

As discussed previously, we will not have a teleconference this week, 3 August. Instead, you could spend the time reviewing the latest WCAG 2.0 presentation draft. <smile />

The updated draft of the WCAG 2.0 presentation from Thursday 2 August is available at:
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/wcag20pres/wcag20intro.ppt in presentation format
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/wcag20pres/wcag2intro.doc in word processing format

The 2 August version has the order re-arranged based on discussions from last week's teleconference. There are still lots of places with incomplete notes, and the text is very drafty. If you have comments at this stage, please send them before Wednesday 8 August. I may be able to incorporate comments on Wednesday or Thursday to have before next week's teleconference.

The requirements/analysis document is at:

Talk to you next week.
