Hi Philippe, All,

I've sent the message below to Michael and Jeanne but both have been out 
or otherwise unable to respond during the past days.

As per the message, I've created and initial stub for accessibility 
testing and as far as I can see they should all fall within the current 
approach/design. However, we will further check with the Working Groups 
and get back to you soon.

I'll be traveling this Monday but I think Michael will be on the call.

Best,
   Shadi

Hi Michael, Jeanne,

Refs:
  - [1] <http://www.w3.org/wiki/Testing/Requirements>
  - [2] <http://www.w3.org/wiki/Testing/accessibility>

I've added suggestions and references to existing WAI work throughout
the main testing wiki-page [1], and discussed several of the changes
with Philippe and Francois earlier this week. We particularly talked
about the "test methods" sections and Philippe has started to refine it.
Here are the minutes from the previous call:
  - <http://www.w3.org/2011/03/21-testing-minutes.html>

I've also created an initial accessibility testing wiki-page [2], to
better capture our own testing requirements. It captures the different
types of tests that I expect would apply to WCAG, WAI-ARIA, and UAAG
(ATAG is a different issue because it is not browser/client based).

Please go through [2] and make sure that any type of testing you can
think of are sufficiently covered in the examples highlighted. Feel free 
to edit directly and to share with your working groups as needed.


Thanks,
   Shadi
