I have tweaked bits and the meanings of the acronyms a little but I am not sure I have done this correctly.

I have to agree with John that we really need to find where the overlaps are occurring and then be specific in the areas that are particular to each of the disabilities we are covering – so much could be said to be necessary for all our groups such as readability, good use of white space, clear headings, use of larger fonts generally etc.   I am sure we could quickly get this sorted when we meet and then have a matrix for those knotty issues that mean developers may need to all for CSS changes such as coloured overlays or wider line spacing etc.

Hi John,
Thanks for reviewing.  I do not really understand the problem. Are you suggesting we do separate methodologies for items that are widely applicable to thoughs at are more limited in scope? This is just to identify gaps for what is need. It might be easier to explain it in the next call.

The abbreviations are explained - RS is explained below the key - but i will add again so it is easier.
All the best

Hi Lisa,

My understanding about the gap analyses is that we are going to address techniques, accommodations, and issues in common across cognitive disabilities, then those unique to each disability. I don't see that approach reflected in the methodology.

Also, I apologize, but I don't know the definitions of the abbreviations "RS" and "SC". Perhaps they could be spelled out upon their first appearances in the doc.

I made a draft for methodology for the gap analysis


It is a first draft, please comment, edit etc...
