jon: updating controls and images rule to use the conceptual model

jon: will be releasing a new version of cache inspector by this weekend

jon: current conceptual model has a concept of element scope and page scope

Nick: Lets give more think about it

Next Topic: Widget Rules

jongund /member/wiki/WCAG_2.0_Principle_4_Robust_Rules#Requirement_4.1.2_Name.2C_Role.2C_Value

Jon: Each rule will have a definition, summary, related req, scope, corrective action

Jon: and purpose is a list


Jon: and another property called target resource helps user to understand about the propeties used to evaluate a rule


Nick: Target resources [role = 'X'] where X is <link>ARIA Widget Role</link>

Jon: another property name resource properties

Jon: are the properties specific to target resources pertain to rule definition

Jon: Nick is been working on wireframes and prototypes for Firefox Accessibility extension

Jon: we do have lots of resource properties, but we wanna show only those which are cared by users

Jon: Question for Rich

Jon: Should Label eleement work with widgets

Rich: not sure. let me look int o HTML5

Rich: Anything implied to host language symantics, The ARIA attributes defined in the ARIA specifications, and the strong native semantics and default implicit ARIA semantics defined, do not have any effect on CSS pseudo-class matching, user interface modalities that don't use assistive technologies, or the default actions of user interaction events

Jon: Another question is do we have to mention Title Technique?

Jon: Lets think about it
