Dear EO Planning group,

(I'm sending this mail to Shawn, Sharron and Brent, as I'm currently in transit in airports and cannot recall the generic e-mail to whom the message should be addressed.  Would appreciate your forwarding as required).

Our apologies for the slight delay due to some mails not reaching one another.

Charlotte and I have looked at the "Older Users Resources", have examined the four resources mentioned below and submit our comments hereafter:
*Web Accessibility and Older People: Meeting the Needs of Ageing Web Users*
This resource needed the most reworking.  Attached in track-change mode one version, plus a clean version for comparison.  The link to the current resource is: https://www.w3.org/WAI/older-users/#dev <https://www.w3.org/WAI/older-users/#dev>
We have tried to tailor it to remove the technical focus currently at the beginning (with the listing of the Guidelines) and placing those links at applicable points addressing the user groups in question.  We have tried to eliminate as much of the extra words as possible. Attached two files, one in track-change mode, one clean version.

*Older Users Online:  WAI Guidelines Address Older Users Web Experience*
No changes to as it is a reproduced article
https://www.w3.org/WAI/posts/2009/older-users-online <https://www.w3.org/WAI/posts/2009/older-users-online>

*Instructions for the "Web Accessibility for Older Users" presentation:*
https://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/ageing/ <https://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/ageing/>
The problem is whether this resource should be updated or not.
The slides date back to 2010 and are a *WAI/AGE* project resource.

   * If there is the possibility to have these updated in the future, then, we would recommend removing them until such time that they are updated.  The slides in question which might need updating are the statistics.    Otherwise, I think the content is still relevant.

*Overview of Literature Review*:
The same problem as mentioned above as regards the updating of the WAI/AGE resource.
Current web version link: https://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wai-age-literature.php <https://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wai-age-literature.php>

   * The key question is will this resource(Literature Review) be updated in the future or not?  If the resource will not be updated, then, a few suggestions are made in the attached Word file concerning the introductory page
   * Charlotte is concerned about old material being made available under the new design.  She recommends that the *both *resources (presentation and overview of literature review plus review) be removed unless the literature review will be updated in the near future.

Best,

Vicki
