I prefer "website accessibility evaluation methodology" - keeps it short and only the essential words are in there - additional explanation can be found at the beginning of the document
Thanks and best wishes

Hi  all
Sorry I've been a bit silent the last 2 weeks - up to my ears in a research project and my brain is starting to hurt!

I like the 2nd title: Website Accessibility Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0.

I'll try to wade through the rest of the discussions before tonight (if I can).


Regards

Vivienne L. Conway

No, I'm just trying to wrap-up the discussion... ;)

While having "WCAG" in the title has benefits, it also has substantial
drawbacks:
  - Do we say "WCAG 2.0", "WCAG 2", or just "WCAG"?
  - How do we version the Methodology, do we say "Website Accessibility
Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0 1.0"?

Same as above.

In the following I'm not sure if you are suggesting alternate titles or
shortnames or both but we can re-discuss.

> - MCEWA (Methodology for Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility)
> - CEWA (Conformance Evaluation of Websites for Accessibility)
> - CEW2WCAG2 (Conformance Evaluation of Websites to WCAG 2)
> - UWEM (Unified Web Evaluation Methodology)
> - SITE (no meaning yet)
> - MAWA (Methodology for Assessing Website Accessibility)
> - MDWC (Methodology for Determining Website Compliance)
> - EWAMAC (Evaluation Methodology for Assessing Website Accessibility Conformity)
> - EMAWC (Evaluation Methodology for Assessing Website Conformity)
> - WEM (Website Evaluation Methodology for WCAG 2.0)

Best,
