Discussion of VVSG Version 2 Draft
3.2.7 Alternative Languages
This section got muddled in VVSG 05. Some states needs this and some don't. We don't want to mandate to every vendor that they must have this capability - but if they have it this is what must be done. Add a statement about "if supporting language, then …" No objections to comments
3.2.8 on privacy already covered so this section was skipped.
3.2.9 Usability for Poll Workers
This section is in the roughest shape of any of our sections. It was in a different place in VVSG 05, we're trying to pull it together.
188.8.131.52 Operation - System must be easy to operate, easy to set up and break down, and have adequate documentation.
This is new material. Sharon L is talking to experts to help cover these concerns. There is also concern about testing this in a test lab. Experts may not be realistic. We need a "typical" poll worker. Statement added about documentation usefulness - "must be suitable for use at polling place."
184.108.40.206 Maintenance - Old material, clean up, but same as before. No issues.
Bullet "B" about quality control is not written very well. If we don't understand it, how can we test it. Maybe it should be removed. We should ask former committee members about it's intent, if not understandable, then remove it. Bullet "C" is good, maybe we should start with it.
NOTE: Reminder that this section is above and beyond what every system must do. Implication that all the usability requirements must apply to the accessibility systems.
3.3 Accessibility Requirements
Hasn't changed much since VVSG 05. It was really hashed out then.
Same as VVSG 05 with a little rewording.
3.3.2 Partial Vision [John C will be rewriting this section. NOTE: May want a new section on "Initiating use of voting system - mode selection aspect"]
- Why is this here - "how will millimeters be calculated"? Because
of comments from 05.
Comment received for VVSG 05 - Guarantee room for human assistant. Do we want to address this. David - Please respond to this issue via email
NOTE: For the next meeting we want to post that we invite access board members to participate.
Moved a piece about hearing aids to this section
New. No specific design issues. Discussion section includes specific features.
3.3.8 English Proficiency
Treated as a disability.
