you aren't saying that the board has no taste are you?

Subject: Re: [teitac-websoftware] Proposal for a new User
I agree with this in spirit; however, it is the only futuristic standard
and is quite out of place here. I would rather see the FPC take over
when a non-covered technology interface is developed. Also, aural is
already covered under AV; I don't think the Board will go for a standard
with taste and olfactory in it.

Subject: [teitac-websoftware] Proposal for a new User Preference
My action item was to produce a Proposal for a new User Preference
Settings (Non-Visual) provision that is seperate from Visual Display
setting as 3.2 C User Preferences is currently placed under
Software & General Behavior Provisions
If the Product has Visual Output or Display
3.2 C User Preferences.
This new proposed provision, discussed at the July 25 TEITAC
Web/Software telecon, is meant/designed to cover [future] tactile,
olfactory, cognitive, speech and aural settings (including user
rendering and speech output), and possibly other sensory modality
Please speak up if you can think of other sensory modalities that could
have relevance to E&IT. Think - scratch and sniff. Would that, scratch
and sniff, have made sense (ha-ha) to anyone years ago? We need to be
thinking this way. What if a program or an eZine forced an aroma upon
you (as in a magazine perfume ad)?
I think there are at least two issue that must be covered, stopping and
controlling non-visual interactions. With that said, I realize that this
proposal is very broad.
Name: User Preferences (Non-Visual)
Provision Text: If an application uses a mode of interaction other than
visual (aural, taste, olfactory, tactile), that can affect human sensory
functions, settings shall be provided that allow the user to stop and
control those functions, or, provides a mode that utilizes the platform
user settings for control of those functions.
3.2 C User Preferences would be renamed to 3.2 C User Preferences
I realize that this may seem way-out-there, but considering the rapidly
advancing state of voice and other biometric identifier technologies
(due to security concerns and therefore have available R&D funding), the
possibility that other sensory modalities will be utilized to "grab" the
attention of consumers is a very real.
