Topic 2: Continued Review of Statement on Desktop Interoperability (SOI)

Janina's Proposed Addendum to Open A11y Statement on Desktop Interoperability (SOI)

Addendum to Addendum to Statement of Intent

  • Also should name Sun Microsystems
  • Codethink has done an engineering study
  • Should mention CodeThink and Novell in the addendum; Mike will ask Rob and Mark what language they want

JS: like the parade of names since we have a statement about moving forward; helps drive that point home

WW: No matter what we do, we'll leave some people out by accident

JS: Everyone will have the opportunity to sign it

RESOLUTION: The Workgroup will vote on this at the next Open A11y meeting




Topic 3: SIG Updates

IAccessible2 Status Report

IAccessible2 RFC concluded 30 June 2008; fielded a few comments; PeteB and IA2 SIG in process of closing spec down - should expect to have formal voting period on IA2 specification fairly soon.

IAccessible2, version 1.0.2 (RFC version):
IAccessible2, RFC version 1.0.2 in HTML
IAccessible2, RFC version 1.0.2 as IDL


Reviving the AT-SPI SIG

  • GJR notes that we need someone to actively monitor the atspi emailing list so that the latest inquiries can be fielded expeditiously so we can benefit from community feedback and gain a reputation as a "responsive" organization

Face to Face Opportunity in 2009

JS: KDE's Akademy 2009 and Guadec are being held next year at the same place (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) and same time (beginning 3 July 2009) -- ideal time-frame for an Open A11y face to face meeting in Los Palmas; shall we shoot for that?
