Hi Norah,

I am not sure if you are around today, but wanted to get theses
considerations in cue for whenever you return.  There are many GitHub Open
Issues <https://github.com/w3c/wai-people-use-web/issues>for the resource
but only a couple of them (2) must be addressed now - before publication.
Eric has kindly outlined those in his previous email and I have copied them
here:

   -

   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."


Once you have made - or dismissed - these 2 issues, we can clear them with
James and publish.  If you can get to it before the end of the year, that
will be wonderful.  If not please just let me know.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!!

Sharron
