Hi Detlev, all,

Also seems to me that doing step 1 - 3 is probably less time consuming. So let us start there. This means:

1. We need volunteers for this. Please indicate on the mailing list if you can help.
2. Please send me more proposals for potential websites (traditional website and/or web application). 

We could do this offline so the website is not named on the mailing list. Would be great if we could have at least six volunteers to do two different websites. 
Kindest regards,

Hi everyone,

I guess what really can be tested is step 1-3 to see if after following these steps we will come up with vert different samplings and if we do, analyse why thst happened. Acrually going through the success criteria in step 4 will just reveal the differences we will have in assessing content, letting minor issues pass (or not) as the case nay be, guided (or not) by the application of WCAG techniques. There is nothing in the methodology that would recommend any rating approach over any other.

Testing step 1-3 does not seem very timeconsuming so I am happy to join the test team.

> Hi Eric
> This is looking good, but certainly seems like a lot of work for individual volunteers who would all be assessing the same pages.  While it will give a great data set, to evaluate a website usually takes considerable time and this would also depend upon the sample size.  Would it be better to split up the sample after it is chosen in step 3 and all evaluate a portion?
