Attendees ---------- Janina Sajka Steve Nobel Tatsuya Ishihara Peter Korn 1) Approve minutes for last ODF Accessibility SC Meeting http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/office-accessibility/email/archives/200705/msg00013.html -> Minutes approved 2) Status of Mac's review of the ODF 1.1 Accessibility Guidelines? [Mike Paciello?] -> Mak is on target to have the guide back to us by June 15th 3) Rich's Initial review of changes to ODF 1.2 (http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/office/download.php/23991/OpenDocument-v1.2-draft3.odt) 3.1.13 <meta:auto_reload>and 3.1.13 <meta:ReloadDelay> Need to modify developer guidelines to ensure acceptable reload times (don't want to cause a seizure) to provide author guidance in line with WCAG 2. We need to define what an acceptable reload delay is. 3.1.14 <meta:hyperlink-behaviour> Needs to specify what happens when a hyperlink is activated. we should say something about point of regard in our developer guidelines 3.2/3/3 User Defined/Custom meta data - need to see what will do with this. we could reuse user-defined meta data to store added semantics such as for business presentations. 4.6 Do we need to do more with Change Tracking? 8.2.4 Header Rows - the author of this section asks if this text is acceptable for the use of row headers (Rich says yes) To facilitate accessibility the element must be used to encapsulate row headers. Accessibility is diminished by the use of styles to designate row headers. 8.2.6 Subtables - Subtables must be deprecated. Tables alters the row/column references such that users who are blind get disoriented within the table. Note: Rich did send an email to Rob Weir regarding deprecating Subtables. -> No disagreements on the call with the issues that Rich raises; agreement with his proposals. The group has not sufficiently reviewed the 1.2 spec. to have any additions to these. 4) MathML - Do we need to do more with MathML? -> Steve Nobel looked over the draft 1.2 spec. for MathML. Just a pointer to the W3C spec. Steve Nobel (who will get with Neil Soiffer) to take a second look at it. Will also take a look at the spec. for MathML in OpenXML 5) Kurzweil Action Item - Mike, do we have a technical contact? -> No word from Mike 6) Request to the group: review TEITAC draft for accessible content as it pertains to ODF 1.2 http://teitac.org/wiki/Web_and_Software:_Draft_2#Recommendations_on_a_new_section_to_cover_content_formats -> Janina, Steve to look over this text, provide their thoughts on both the recommendations themselves, and also on how ODF 1.1/1.2 addresses these recommendations. 7) Upcoming vacation for Peter... will be out June 12 - June 21.
