Ø  On todays call with the DPUB working group, the suggested example text was proposed to be added to the WCAG definition of a 'set of Webpages' in order to better address the needs of DPUB stakeholders.

Josh, to be clear, are we talking about this update for WCAG 2.1 or WCAG 2.0.  For WCAG 2.0 since the whole definition section is normative I don’t think we can it for 2.0 but for 2.1 it seems like it would be backwards compatible.

Subject: CFC: Issue 72: Proposed change in definition to "set of web pages"

CALL FOR CONSENSUS – ends Thursday Dec 1st at 5:00pm Boston time.

Hi all,

On todays call with the DPUB working group, the suggested example text was proposed to be added to the WCAG definition of a 'set of Webpages' in order to better address the needs of DPUB stakeholders.

The current definition can be seen here:
https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/#set-of-web-pagesdef


DPUB Proposal for language: Example: A publication is split across multiple Web pages, where each page contains one chapter or other significant section of the work. The publication is logically a single contiguous unit, and contains navigation features that enable access to the full set of pages.

The item was discussed on the WG call and positive responses were proffered - (https://www.w3.org/2016/11/29-wai-wcag-minutes.html).

The original issue on Github: https://github.com/w3c/wcag21/issues/72


If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this position, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.

Thanks
