A couple more things then the RFC ready to push. The RFC
announcement email [below] has been edited again, you're welcome
to send feedback on this version if you like.
1. Also, there is and "accessibility" Bugzilla at
a. Not sure what this means. Is it that
"accessibility", "keyboard" and "atspi"
terms that can be used to bring up bugs
in each of these categories?
b. Should we have 2 search terms, one for
the funcspec and one for the generic asserts?
a. This URL points to the func spec, we need
a separate one for the test asserts spec also.
3. Other thumbs up from George needed:
a. Putting your A11Y ready Comments page [and
frames] officially up [see previous emails]
b. http://bugs.freestandards.org/ A11Y ready fixed?

The Free Standards Group Accessibility Workgroup (FSGA) works to
develop standards supporting comprehensive access to information
and user interfaces for persons with disabilities on computing
platforms which adopt free and open standards (such as Linux,
AIX, and Solaris). The FSGA standards process is open to
interested members of industry, developer, and consumer
communities. Obtaining public comment on our proposed standards
before they are finalized is one of the most important steps in
our process. Public review helps ensure our standards are both
relevant and complete.
We are now requesting comment on the following specifications
produced by our Keyboard Access Team (FSGA-kbd):
Keyboard Access Functional Specification, RC1
This specification defines keyboard access
assistive technology features and the
functionality an FSG certified platform must
provide in support of accessibility.
Generic Assertions for Manual Testing, RC1
This specification describes how to validate
that an implementation of the functional
specification is correctly implemented.
Once these specifications become FSG standards, they will define
the keyboard access functionality a user can expect from an FSG
certified computer system.
