CfC’s need to be a yes/no answer please.

I’d hold off on the Understanding suggestion as it may be that we wind up with a single Understanding document that covers WCAG 2 (2.0 and 2.1).

Thanks,

For 2.0, we can't change a word of the normative document... but we can add the exact same example into the 2.0 Understanding doc that will be in the 2.1 glossary.

So I propose a friendly amendment to have two changes.
1) Add the example to the 2.1 Glossary
2) Add the same example to the Understanding document for 2.0

Cheers,
David MacDonald

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.

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
