1.0 Review updated conceptual model of web accessibility evaluation
  • [https://trac.ainspector.org/design/wiki/interaction-design/conceptual-model]
  • NH: Most of the changes are related to evaluation results
  • NH: In Item A is more generic web resources
  • NH: The website definition is removed, since we are not considering those types of rules at this time
  • NH: The result of selecting resources is target resources, this is the concrete set of elements to test
  • NH: Evaluation objects is the same as the previous
  • NH: Evaluation actions and results now have defined values
  • NH: The node results is a new concept
  • NH: A rule has the scope of a particular element has scope of either element or page
* Example element rule is alt text on an image * Example of a page rule is main landmark on page
  • NH: The results of element rules the node results are primary
  • NH: The results of a page rules the node results are secondary
  • NH: In a page level rule does not specifically have a node to fix
  • MS: Is element and node used interchangeably?
  • NH: Element is an abstraction of what you are looking for and a node is an actual element found in the page
  • MB: The element can be thought of as a class and nodes are like instances
  • NH: Yes
  • NH: Does this make sense?
  • NH: We also have text node rules for color contrast requirements
  • MB: Can you add an example to the wiki page on the element and node results
  • NH: Rule categories are rules are related to the same or similar elements
  • NH: We can assign a rule to a rule set as either required or recommended
  • NH: A node results is applied to a rule result and creates a page result
  • NH: We don’t need “none” at the node level
  • JG: Describes why hidden is needed
  • NH: At the page level result is flexible and each rule gets to decide based on its node results
  • NH: I will add clarification on the terms element and node
  • NH: The exercise to better understand the properties of rules and the accessibility rule really stands out

2.0 Information architecture for Accessible Web Design Resources
  • MB: I am not sure the “best practices” is the best term
  • MB: I am working on adding some information to the wiki
  • JG:
  • MS: Are looking for a different term than “Best Practices”
  • MS: It is used in other areas
  • NH: What is the difference between a best practice and an accessibility rule
  • NH: Rules seem to be part best practices
  • CD: Googling “web accessibility best practices” come up iCITA web site
  • BR: We have a checklists for image rotators, so what level is a best practices, what makes something that makes something a best practices
  • BR: Is it broader than just one rule
  • NH: Some rules are pretty well agreed on and some others like headings may have differences, for example a titling best practices is have the H1 content
  • CD: What about methods
  • JG: We want to promote web standards and usability for people with disabilities
  • ME: Are we going to be using success criteria
  • JG: We will be point back to WCAG 2.0 success criteria
  • CD: Would the word solutions or solution
  • JG: Describes the topics
  • MB: The benefits are important
  • CD: This is important
  • MB: I have been working on a presentation, we should have videos
  • BR: I have been using videos in presentations to great effect
  • BR: I use videos as part of bug reports, this goes a long way to helping people understand

What is Our Next Step?
  • MB: I will work on the conceptual
  • CD: What are the benefits
  • JG: Next develop some user scenarios
