Hi Wayne and all
Regarding your question on compliance officers I asked my college (she has a US husband) and she understood your question completely different from me. So first is this person working in house or is it someone from an institution like the Swedish Disability Ombudsman or in Denmark The Equal Opportunities Centre for Disabled Persons which is a kind of watchdog on behalf of our government to monitor or oversee that accessibility and equal opportunities as described in our legislation is followed? 
If it's a person within a company I must say no we don't have that maybe in other areas like environment and pollution or information to consumers e.g. companies selling medicine to the US market have to conform to US legislation etc.
Cheers
Helle

Sincerely

Thank You,

Your personas are good.

William you might want to add one more 
--Esther Marcos -- the another woman 
at the center who has learned the web, 
but still has to cope with the 
disabilities of aging.  Esther might 
want to learn about how to find 
accessible sites on the web.

Helle, in the US we have compliance 
officers to enforce disability law in 
large organizations.  Does such a 
position exist in Denmark?  If so 
would you like to do the persona if 
you know such a person.  I will do one 
too for our culture.  Maybe we can 
come up with an international persona.

I looked at all the personas for the 
WAI Sight redesign.  Several are in 
the UMTF target group.
I suggest looking at:  Martina Prado 
(as is), Chandra Weesaw (with recent 
vision loss - 20/50 bilateral), Marc 
Blake (moderate dyslexia), William 
Travis (as is), Jessica Pratner (ADD), 
Xioping Zhang (as is), Dr. Su 
Sathianathan (Early Macular 
Degeneration), Brad Fletcher is a Viet 
Nam vet he had a spinal cord injury 
that placed him in a chair.


We can discuss the personas on 
Thursday.

Liam will talk a little on What 
Accessibllity Logos Meaan....

Wayne
