a. Updated APIs /member/wiki/Accessibility_Evaluation_Library_Objects_and_APIs

Jon: Nick & Jon working on changes. Changes to grouping to help develop training modules.


Jon: received more input on call today that will lead to subsequent changes.

Ann: doesn't like the label for groups of Basic, Intermediate, Advanced.

Ann: suggests Part 1 of 3, Part 2 of 3, Part 3 of 3

Mike: no preference at this time

Charlie: no preference at the moment

Ann: take care of differences of running groups in the documentation.

Jon: will take another pass and review at next call.

Charlie: seems like there are two paths. 1) first stage for legacy site; 2) for developing a new site.

Ann: suggest having Group 1 & 2 check for custom widgets and present and alert that they must use Group 3.

Jon: not everyone is worried about meeting WCAG level A and AA

Jon: different interpretations of WCAG and maybe rules/groups will spur discussion

Jon: was on ARIA Authoring Practices and three are blind and very interested in trying out AInspector.

Nick: not quite ready yet. VoiceOver keeps saying "busy".

Agenda item 2. Open Tickets and Bus for OAA Library




Ann: as HTML5 says 'should' and not 'must', make it a recommended rule

Group: agrees
