FW: Agenda: Special HTML-A11Y Task Force on 1 August at 15:00Z for 240 minutes


For anyone who attended Thursday's session or is interested in the second part, here is the meeting request.  Note this is entirely an optional item for UAAG and no specific actions are requested of UAAG members from this mail unless you are interested.  We have done a good job of looking at the HTML 5 spec and our concerns have made it into the larger process that is filing bugs.  If you are interested in attending this session, I'm told we are welcome by the task force and I know they can always use the help.

Mail archives for the task force mailing list can be found at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/. Minutes from Thursday's session are at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2011Jul/0169.html.

The basic process that is going on at this point is:

1. The HTML5 accessibility task force is reviewing comments from the various accessibility reviews that have happened on the HTML5 spec.  This includes the reviews done by members of UAAG.
A. The wiki where review comments have been compiled is at http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Spec_Review.
B. A single page version of this review wiki is at http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Spec_Review/All.
2. The task force looks at the comments and assesses if there is enough detail and justification for the task force to file a task force supported bug.
A. If the review determines that a bug is appropriate, someone from these meetings is assigned to file the bug and update the wiki with the bug number.
B. The task force has a triage group that is watching for these bugs and helping to move them through the bug process.  This does not mean that this group will do all the bug work but they are monitoring and helping ensure task force issues do not get lost.
C. The wiki is updated to indicate by and large what the task force has done with comments e.g. bug or feels the issue needs more discussion.
3. Bugs from this process that the task force has determined to file and support are tagged with the keyword of a11ytf.
4. Note, this does not stop anyone from filing bugs outside this process on the HTML 5 spec around accessibility or any other areas of concern.  The a11ytf designation is an indication that the task force has reviewed the issue and that this group believes it is important and that they are tracking it specifically.
5. For any bugs filed on the HTML 5 spec at this point, the more complete the text being proposed is the better.

Dial the Zakim bridge using either SIP or the PSTN.
PSTN: +1.617.761.6200 (This is a U.S. number).
SIP: zakim@voip.w3.org
You should be prompted for a pass code,
This is

Alternatively, bypass the Zakim prompts and SIP directly into our teleconference.
SIP: 002119@voip.w3.org

> Instructions for how to connect using SIP:
Place for users to contribute additional VoIP tips.
IRC: server: irc.w3.org, port: 6665, channel: #html-a11y.

During the conference you can manage your participation with Zakim commands as follows:
   61# to mute yourself
   60# to unMute yourself
   41# to raise your hand (enter speaking queue)
   40# to lower your hand (exit speaking queue)

The system acknowledges these commands with a rapid, three-tone confirmation.  Mobile phone users especially should use the mute function if they don't have a mute function in their phone.  But the hand-raising function is a good idea for anyone not using IRC.

* IRC access

     There will also be an IRC channel available. The server is irc.w3.org,
     the port number is 6665 (note this is not the normal default) and the channel is #html-a11y.
