I noticed in the meeting minutes that I have an assignment as follows
* Gregg will post for the group, that Web be keep complete in itself, and
AV and software be referenced. Clarified that you can download software by
HTTP request but it does not mean that a downloadable executable is Web
content.It is an HTTP request that is downloaded and rendered, verses just
downloaded. Gregg will encapsulate that in a definition or something that
address applicability and send it to the list for discussion. Possibly a
preamble of the Web section, although the old standard had no text, we may
need to check if any language at all can go there.
The discussion was about the fact that the WEB section seemed to the group
to be something that should stand alone. Because it is content - and not
actually E&IT hardware or software it requires a user agent in order to be
accessible. Software requires and OS so there is some similarity there but
that is taken care of via the wording of those provisions.
So the group decided that
1) the WEB section should stand alone
a. the few provisions it shares with other E&IT would be duplicated or
referenced (pointed to) from the web section
b. the relevant AV provisions would be pointed to
c. a reference to software downloaded from web being different from
web content would be made.
2) we needed a definition of Web content that differentiated it from
content in general
Here is a first pass at Web Content
It is based on the definition of CONTENT and WEB PAGE taken from WCAG.
information and sensory experience that is referenced by a URI and
communicated to the user by means of a Web user agent
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/#useragentdef> , as well as code or markup
that define the structure <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/#structuredef> ,
presentation <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/#presentationdef> , and
interactions associated with those elements
Note: Software and content formats that are downloaded from a URI but not
intended to be presented to the use by means of a Web user agent are not
considered Web content. For example, downloading an .exe file that is then
run separately from the Web user agent is not Web content but simply a
product downloaded from the Web.
Here is a pass at what the WEB CONTENT provisions and notes might look like
Multimedia (Web) - content must meet all of the Multimedia provisions in 6.3
NOTE: Software and other content that is downloaded from the Web but not
intended to be viewed via a Web user agent is not considered Web content.
See definition of Web content.
IF we decide to not duplicate the provisions (if we do duplicate them then
- just paste em in here)
Timing (Web) - content must meet the timing provision 3.1 (X) Timing
Color (Web) - content must meet the Color provision 1.2 (X)Color
Contrast (Web) - content must meet the Contrast provision 1.2 (Y) Contrast
