Hi Deborah

We had a few threads already why we can not recommend the WebAim  page. Why not use our techniques page or issue papers?


All the best

Hi, 
This should be a great chance to publicize the task force’s work to an 
audience of university-age developers. The talk’s supposed to be only 20 
minutes, so I think the goals would be primarily to raise awareness of the 
problem, introduce the W3C's work in the area, and describe a few 
techniques, for example from the WebAim page John posted earlier 
(http://wave.webaim.org/cognitive). 
Since seeing is believing, it also occurred to me that it would be cool to 
show an example of something like a "web page makeover" from a cognitively 
inaccessible page to a more accessible page, does anyone know of any 
examples like that? 
 
Best, 
Debbie
