Hi Tim,

Great idea. Lets keep on filling this list and discuss further steps in our call on thursday. I am not sure if we could publish it at the bottom of our page, but we could maybe make a seperate page or place it somewhere else like on the eAccessplus network HUB. eAccessplus is a European project network. This network could maybe help us find more information.

Lets discuss it in the next call.
Kindest regards,

HI all

This is a really good start Tim.  I'm not sure how many papers are needed to what we're doing.  Perhaps we can discuss this at the next call.  I have lots of journal articles that I can wade through to see which ones specifically apply to measuring and testing accessibililty.  We'll see what everyone thinks on Thursday.

Subject: informational resources list on measuring web accessibility?

Hi, I was wondering if we did a literature survey to determine the current state of the practice of web accessibility measurement.   If we did I apologize for having forgotten.   I remember for the WAI Ageing Task Force, they did a literature survey at the beginning to leverage existing resources.  Perhaps in our document we could have a informative resources list for further reading at the end if appropriate..  Some examples (no endorsement implied, just informational) I found of some resources on measuring web accessibility were:
