Hi Shawn,
hi all.

I asked 3 colleagues to help me to test new WAI Web site nav.
Here are the findings.

Tests were conducted on Feb 15, time 16.00 CET (10.00 US Eastern Time).

Participants data:

Number of participants: 3

Age: 33, 29, 41

Occupation: 1 web content manager, 2 web designer

OS and browsers used: Mac OSX and Firefox 1.0

Note: I asked participants to find the support document "Developing
Organizational Policies on Web Accessibility", starting from
After tests I asked participants their informal impressions about WAI Web
site nav.

The followings are the steps they made to find the document:

participant #1
>From right nav bar: click on "support materials to help understand and
implement Web accessibility", then click on "Implementing" in the left nav
Only two clicks ;-))

participant #2
>From the left nav bar click on "Guidelines & Techniques". "Back" on browser.
>From the left nav bar click on "support materials". Click on "general
resources". "Back" on browser. Click on "Implementing".
Six clicks.

participant #3
He would like to input the doc name in search box. Then he click on "WAI
Site Map" in the left nav bar. Find and click on "General Resources". "Back"
on browser. Click on "Implementing".
Four clicks.

Final notes:
All the participants have found the document in a short way.
All the participants think that the list icon in the left nav bar for "WAI
site map", "Help with WAI Site", "Contacting WAI" and "WAI Translations"
means a doc page, like a Word .doc or a PDF.
2 participants think that the linked word in the right nav bar (guidelines,
supporting materials, and so on), could be bold or underlined.

Hope this can help.

Best regards
