Topic: Review David Todd's requirements for WCAG 2

Issue: what does mean by visa versa related to alternative text

Nathan: At first the difference between an error and a warning is how certain the tool is about the warning

Nathan: In webelo you could have two different levels in the error category

Group: Agreed that most Wiki changes would be sufficient and that resolutions do not have to appear in minutes. If necessary we can go back and review our decisions.

Vio: If not following recommended techniques it should be a warning vs. a error

Rich: thinking need level 1 warnings for best practices

Preety: we have been using violations and errors interchangeably

Preety: should recommend a common vocabulary

Preety: Proposal:

Preety: I would like to use the terminology, violation, potential violation, and recommendation

Preety: recommendation would be equivalent to a warning

Nathan: recommendation would be similar to violating a best practice

Preety: such as an AT interoperability issue

Vio: On the same note for the recommendation, it is like a warning. What happens when we need human interpretation?

Vio: a potential recommendation when need further review

Preety: I think we should incorporate that in

ACTION: Group review better terminology for potential recommendation
