  • Refresh San Fran? Refresh San Jose? Who’ll start one?

Questions/Topics Include

  • Do you feel that (good) progress is being made after the concerns voiced about a year ago?
  • Do you feel that “Success Criteria” make more sense than the previous “Priority levels/Checkpoints”?
  • There is still a “loophole” for an alternative accessible page. Is this acceptable?
  • Valid code is still not a requirement (politically motivated?). Should it be?
  • Do you think that the WCAG 2 is too broad and vague?
  • Is the quick reference an acceptable method for developers to understand WCAG2 if the actual documents are to complex?
