Randy and I started a brainstorming exercise relative to the topics, content, and issues that the "revised" hardware subcommittee will need to consider. Please note, that we may note be able to get to them all. The list starts below in no particular order. Please review and add your thoughts.
1. The tactile requirement for when a device is all touch screen
2. Biometrics requirement - may conflict with security requirements
3. Handheld portable devices - does the mechanical force requirements apply? What about connector requirements? Wireless interconnectivity should be in lieu of mechanical connections.
4. Servers - Uhmm...
5. Cognition - color coding connectors, use of icons instead of text, etc
6. BIOS - Uhmm...
7. How to encourage closed systems (like an iPod) to become open to AT
8. Keyboard layouts on handheld device - should they be required to be consistent?
9. The "Product Line" idea - if a product is too miniature to be useable by people with disabilities, then there is another product in the same family that isn't, but has the same function. In other words, are we going to change the requirement that everything must be accessible to permit a branch in a product line to provide accessible and non-accessible versions?
10. Non-Computer-based E&IT (ie. LCD projector with a smart card)
11. What are the "corporeal" interactions that need to be covered? Touch, visual, auditory, cognitive
12. Existing standards - Hajime (Japan) mentioned several JIS standards
13. Which requirements within 1194.26 should be maintained
We will be discussing this in today's conference call.
