Kathy Schnitt:Welcome Ken
Ken Hansen (Help Them Hear):Thank you Kathy!
Glenn McKnight:Calling in
Kathy Schnitt:Welcome Glenn
Judith Hellerstein:Sorry to be late
Glenn McKnight:A summary video of our Singapore meeting
Judith Hellerstein:Yes it was agood meeting
Glenn McKnight:@judith i will speak after this call on the CROPP meeting
firstname.lastname@example.org:We will be happy to support you with any and all requests
Judith Hellerstein:In building a culture of disability we also need to talk about the inabiliity of blind or low eye sight in using the chat, see the presentations and be on the call at same time
Glenn McKnight:Its critical that our WG has reps from these communities and get their feedback
Glenn McKnight:Item One Toolkit, We need to define what it consists of. ie. Videos, slideshows , resources etc
Ken Hansen (Help Them Hear):Glenn +1 on direct involvement from those in the community
Glenn McKnight:Item Two Training within the ICANN Academy?
Judith Hellerstein:videos and slide shows with many pictures are not good for people who are blind
Laura Bengford:Agree with timeframes, maybe also include level of effort (LOE)
Ken Hansen (Help Them Hear):Timeframes are good
Judith Hellerstein:I think 6-8 months is medium and short term could be 3-4
Glenn McKnight:Some things are immediate. or low hanging fruit others are very tough
Glenn McKnight:hence quite long
Laura Bengford:Maybe LOE is Very High, High, Medium, Low
Judith Hellerstein:where is the wiki page? Do you have the address?
Glenn McKnight:If you recall that ATLAS 2 Declaration stressed accessibility to the disabled communities
Judith Hellerstein:no I am not happy
Judith Hellerstein:@anthony that is not the wiki that Cheryl is using
Glenn McKnight:Provide the direct policy/creditials
Gunela Astbrink:We have some references already in the Singapore wiki workspace and can include the ATLAS II reference
Laura Bengford:Trying clicking refresh on the wiki page and it will reflect Cheryl's updated notes.
Ken Hansen (Help Them Hear):One good short term task would be to take an inventory of what ICANN already does to address accessibility. Do we already have that?
email@example.com:We are getting transcripts within 1 - 2 weks
firstname.lastname@example.org:depends on whether the transcript is translated
email@example.com:if translated it may take longer
Olivier Crepin-Leblond:@Ken: good idea, like a snapshot of what's already there now
Glenn McKnight: I think ICANN focused only on the Website
Glenn McKnight:ie compliance to W3c. I don't think the section 508 or ADA compliance has not been assessed
Heidi Ullrich:+1 CLO, Would you like the idea of a suggstion page to be an AI?
Judith Hellerstein:I agreee with Glenn
Glenn McKnight:Some stuff is much easier but other stuff takes real effort and money,
Judith Hellerstein:sorry I had forgotten to lower my hand
Glenn McKnight:ICANN is a US Based 501C and is obligated to compliant
Judith Hellerstein:+1 gunella
Judith Hellerstein:+1 Glenn
Judith Hellerstein:yes they need to be compliant with the US ADA
Judith Hellerstein:captioning is a must and then it is really easy to turn the captioning into transcripts
firstname.lastname@example.org:@ Judith we are asking ICANN staff re the possibiltity to add captioning
email@example.com:Kathy will take care of audio for Ken
Judith Hellerstein:Hi ken perhaps you need to refresh your page
Kathy Schnitt:I am checking with Ken to see if we can dial out to him and also to give him directions to speak via ac
Ken Hansen (Help Them Hear):Think I am on now
Glenn McKnight:@Gunella I missed most of your comment due to crazy skype chat interuptions
Judith Hellerstein:+1 Ken
Glenn McKnight:@ ken they should be provided in the toolkit the best practices to implement
Glenn McKnight:A proper assessment of the venue
Judith Hellerstein:Captioning is a short term priority
Gunela Astbrink:The wider stocktake would need clear guidelines
Glenn McKnight:Special efforts to those attending the main event with special needs to given priority to the hotel
Anthony Niiganii (MBE):+1 Ken about registars and registrants...is ICANN able to identify any that are disability related, or specific, business?
Judith Hellerstein:as is a disability awareness toolkit to promote that all calls are accessible
Gunela Astbrink:And I agree would be medium / long term but the devt of the guidelines could be short term
Glenn McKnight:@Gunella the toolkit can provide the simple steps for implementation for the registrars
Gunela Astbrink:We are then talking about a broader toolkit
Glenn McKnight:Specific toolkit
Gunela Astbrink:@Glenn. important points
Judith Hellerstein:we can have several toolkits
Glenn McKnight:yes, the documents can be tailored to the constitutencies
Judith Hellerstein:one can be one on how to do remote conferencing and use of the share screen, chat, and also participating with questions
Glenn McKnight:The simple video step by step instruction is better than a long drawn out document
Judith Hellerstein:Yes but a video is not good for blind or low vision
Anthony Niiganii (MBE):+1 Glenn...I agree, even short podcasts or audio
Glenn McKnight:Your right
Judith Hellerstein:so we may need both
Ken Hansen (Help Them Hear):Important to make short term incremental improvements rather than wait to have something complete
Glenn McKnight:It's a progression
Glenn McKnight:I hope to be back at the NTEN event in March and I am outreaching to the technology community in the Non Profit sector
Anthony Niiganii (MBE):Who is attending the LA meeting?
Gunela Astbrink:My other short term suggestion is for accessibility meeting guidelines
Glenn McKnight:I fear that alot of government compliance on disability is watered down to bare minimum and not progressive. We need to be the shiny example
Judith Hellerstein:+1 Gunella yes guideline would be great
Judith Hellerstein:+1 glenn
Glenn McKnight:Guidelines with teeth
Judith Hellerstein:yes they need teeth
Glenn McKnight:Look at the equity hiring or equity contracting legislation
Klaus Stoll:Sorry, I need to move to another meeting. Thanks for a good meeting.
