Hi Sharron and Eric,


I saw Eric's previous email and changes to James' comments, but thought I would wait until the survey closed to make the additional changes in case there were more. I added comments to the issues: https://github.com/w3c/wai-people-use-web/issues/58



- Provided expanded form of CART acronym

- Revised long sentences


Eric, can you implement the changes from the comments I added?


+1 to adding colons and semicolons where needed

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

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<https://github.com/w3c/wai-people-use-web/issues?utf8=%E2%9C%93&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
