Hello Shadi and all,
As agreed on last eo teleconference, I have reviewed the pages at:
Here are some comments.

  Review of bad demo pages by Sylvie duchateau

    [Draft] Before and After Demonstration: Overview

Is it planned to explain somewhere in this overview page what the 
anotations are? For example, on the home page of the inaccessible Web 
site, you see the link "show annotations" which displays an h2 with 
annotations at the end of the page. For peple new to this suite of 
documents, it is not clear what those annotations are for and this 
should be explained somewhere.

    [DRAFT] Accessibility Barriers Shown in the Demo

    * Does the list of barriers include all the accessibility problems
      of each demo page, or does it list only the main problems?
    * For the list of barriers on the home page, I do not see the
      problem of the default language of the page which is not specified
      and the page title which is not really appropriate.

    In general for all accessible pages

    * In the page search by topic, the submit buttton has the value "go"
      and a title "submit". In some cases, screeen readers can read the
      value in other cases the title of the button. May be the title on
      the button is not necessary.

    Accessible home page

    * Page title is correct but could be more precise, saying that you
      are on the home page of the city.
    * One link text seems to be not really evident: the link leading to
      the survey says: "take survey". I am not sure that when the link
      is read with the paragraph beside it, it is evident that this
      survey relates to city parks.

    Page citilight survey

    * both "submit" buttons to select a topic and to submit the form are
      entitled the same. It would be more useful if they could be
    * the form submission does not work for me. I get every time an
      error message telling me that my e-mail address is not valid. It
      works only when I do not fill out the optional fields with name
      and e-mail address.
    * One suggestion : once the form has been submitted add the
      following to the sentence:
      Actual sentence: "Thank you for submitting your vote, it has been
      successfully recorded."
      Proposal: "Thank you for submitting your vote, it has been
      successfully recorded. We remind you that this is a fictive survey
      and it is only for the demonstration."
    * I don't know if this would work in these demo pages: it may be
      useful to indicate in the page title that there is still an error
      or that you have reached the end of the form submission.
      For example: on the page that says "Thank you for submitting your
      vote, it has been successfully recorded." the title could be:
      citylight survey form submitted". On the error page the page title
      could be: "citylight survey one error on e-mail address".
