Hi Simon,

actually I think it should be only one symposium on e2r INCLUDING aspects like AT and PA for text illustration ...

Thanks for this Klaus and Shawn.

WRT the new text:

Related topics may be addressed in additional symposia, such as 
easy-to-read (E2R) language; assistive technologies and personal 
assistance for text illustration and enrichment (e.g., text annotation 
with symbols, pictures, and multimedia content; audio display and 
information design); and text conversion and machine translation.

http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/wiki/Topic_3_pre-call

My view is that this is not very concrete - E2R is the only symposium we 
have agreed - I wonder if we should not just say that Easy to Read will 
be our next topic (and ref it), leaving the rest as we have no plans to 
create symposia in our first charter period (otherwise it seems a little 
misleading with people waiting for symposia that may not materialise).

Cheers


Si.

PS I check my email at 08:00 and 17:00 GMT. If you require a faster response please include the word 'fast' in the subject line.
