Hi all,

I did not hear a planning team OK for the publication of the stories 
from “How people with disabilities use the web”. The survey seems to 
be generally in favor of publication:

https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35532/ApproveHPWDUW2017/results

There are two open pull requests from the review:

https://github.com/w3c/wai-people-use-web/pulls

And there are several issues opened by Shadi that only need to be 
addressed when we put the document into the new design, so I postponed 
them:

https://github.com/w3c/wai-people-use-web/issues?utf8=✓&q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+author%3Anitedog+label%3Awai-redesign-before

One of the pull requests includes some changes proposed by James:

https://github.com/w3c/wai-people-use-web/issues/58

But there are still two open issues that the resource manager needs to 
address (or dismiss):

- Provide expanded form of CART acronym

- The following 2 sentences are verrrry long. Please break into a 
few/simplify. "The university became aware of the need and requirement 
to provide captioned media and transcripts for audio content and is now 
working with a captioning provider to caption all content posted on 
university websites and course content in learning management systems, 
following the WCAG guidelines. In addition to providing access to the 
content for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, the university has 
found that the use of captions and transcripts facilitates easier 
production of subtitles in a number of languages and improves the 
indexing of their online content which provides improved search engine 
optimization and improved discoverability of the university’s online 
content."

Therefore, and without other direction, I decided to hold off 
publication of the stories page until all the changes are implemented.

Eric
