There are many of us on multiple committees, so simultaneous meetings won?t
(in my opinion) work too well. Non-simultaneous meetings would be OK, but I
think we should use the plenary time (2 days) for plenary stuff.
You were going to post the transcripts from the first meeting ? did I miss
Has there been any progress on ?trading access? with ISO and other standards
organizations (other than WAI)?

I did not send any group messages last Friday, Oct 20th, 2006. My previous
messages are attached.
Some logistical items:

Questions: 1A,B,C Agenda
4. IDEAS panel
**1. The Access Board is preparing the AGENDA for the two day, Nov. 8 & 9th
meeting. We are prepared to provide time during the two days for all of the
subcommittees to meet, face to face.
A. Do you want us to do this?
B. If we Do NOT provide face to face meeting time for the subcommittees at
the meeting on Nov. 8 & 9, 2006, What do you want to do instead?
To the extent possible, we would have an open phone line in each of the four
breakout rooms, with captioning (again, depending on what we can arrange)
and would hold four (4) subcommittee meetings at a time, for 90 minutes at a
time, then we would switch. The public could call into the subcommittee
meetings and contribute to the discussion.
So, for example, let?s say that the Telecommunications, Documentation,
Self-contained, CP and the Desktop/portable subcommittee met from 10:30 a.m.
to 12noon on one day. Then, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon, the GIA, Web, AV and
Sub-Part A subcommittees would meet. This would allow members who were on
multiple subcommittees the chance to attend meetings of many of their
subcommittees, and would allow the other four subcommittees some unscheduled
time. There would be a maximum of 3.0 hours devoted to breakout
subcommittee meetings over the total two days (16.0 hours total)
* General Interface Accessibility
* Web and Software
* Audio Video
* Self contained/closed
* Sub-part A
* Documentation and technical support
Current Agenda draft includes: [These are all plenary (group) meetings for
the full Committee. The subcommittee meetings referenced above would be the
only breakout sessions.]
1. Presentation on the Access Board's responsibilities in
conducting a regulatory assessment.
2. Presentation on the tools available to the subcommittees,
including, Wiki, listservs, etc. Discussion of problems, questions,
3. Presentation on desktop tools which could be acquired for the
4. General Discussion of subcommittee governance, membership,
procedures and policies for use of on-line tools; etc.
5. Reports/presentations from each of the Subcommittee
co-chairs/convenors addressing the following points:
What is your governance structure? Have you picked co-chairs?
What have you discussed to date? Are there any issues or concerns
you have identified? What can the Access Board or the TEITAC do to assist
6. Discussion of "Themes" from the first TEITAC meeting: what are
they, what do they mean, where will they be applied?
7. Applicants to the Committee
8. Unopposed discussion time for the full committee on any of the
C. What else would you like to put on the agenda?
**2. Information/ clarification:
A. A question came up during a subcommittee call this week: ?Do co-chairs
of subcommittees have to be members of the Committee?? Answer: YES. In the
Protocols, adopted by the Committee on September 27, 2006, Paragraph 7.
Subcommittees. ?. ?Chairs of subcommittees shall be members of the
Pursuant to the notice in the Federal Register, please contact me and tell
me who from your organization is attending the Nov. 8 & 9 2006 meeting. I
have to supply a roster to the Dept. of Education Security Department.
**4. OTHER TEITAC BUSINESS:
I have been asked to talk about the pending TEITAC at the IDEAS conference,
in Washington, DC on November 14th.
I have been asked to put together a panel of members from the Committee, who
would sit on the panel, talk briefly about the subcommittees they are on,
and listen to audience input on the Â§508 / 255 refresh. There would be NO
discussion of any specific positions or conclusions by the committee, only a
discussion of how the subcommittees are organized, and a mention of some of
the issues that the subcommittees are considering.
Can I get five (5) Committee members to join me on this panel? I would like
to have balance from government, consumer and industry representatives. The
Access Board cannot pay any travel expenses for this event. This is mainly
a public outreach event on the part of the TEITAC to provide an opportunity
for public input to the refresh process. If anyone is interested in
participating, could you please let me know? I will then tell the full
Committee when I have the 5 volunteers. Thank you for your help.
Thank you all very much for your attention to this lengthy email!
Have a good weekend!
