Raised by: José Manuel Alonso

from message sent by Shawn on behalf of the Group archived at:

W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) reviewed the First Public Working Draft of "Improving Access to Government through Better use of the Web"[1]. Please find EOWG's comments online at:


Please note that the comments include discussion of some significant issues on how accessibility and people with disabilities are addressed in the document. We encourage all authors and editors to carefully read our notes to help clarify misunderstandings, and avoid additional problems as the document is further edited.

EOWG welcomes the opportunity to answer your questions related to Web accessibility and writing about people with disabilities and older people. (For example, you should be careful to avoid wording that assumes that all older people have disabilities or accessibility needs.)

We look forward to reviewing the next draft that includes the missing sections, comment resolutions, and additional edits.
