Dear WSTF,

Here are the only responses I got.  The combination of my inexperience 
at conducting these tests, and this being my first test of the CSU 
network of disable people didn't produce much in the way of results. 
However, some of the comments seemed valuable.

Penny,

My vision is pretty bad, I have limited use (hours) on a V-tech (CCTV).

I have asked a few people to test the site.  Two wanted print bigger, 4 
wanted to due away with the navigation bars.  As a speech user, due away 
with the character marks.  I here plus, plus, before the links.  At the 
very top of page have a Text link only along with skip to content link.

Sorry I could not get back to you sooner.  I was doing some projects 
that could not wait.  Strategy and Leadership planning for the new 
Federally Qualified rural Health Clinic.

I hope this help you.

It is snowing and the sun is shining.

Lu

miss you

- What is your occupation and title?
Programmer, text, data entry.
- How would you describe your role or interest as it relates to web 
development and/or making web pages accessible to people with disabilities?
I am a board member of ATAC for DOR.
- In the last year, how often have you visited the Web Accessibility 
Initiative (WAI) website to locate information?
Several times because of Section 508.
- We are particularly interested in including people with disabilities 
in this study: Do you have a disability? If yes, briefly describe 
disability:
Cerebral Palsy.
- How long have you been involved in Web accessibility?
I use to be a web developer and helped my clients.  Web accessibility is 
not a major concern for most of my formal clients because they are 
privately funded.  The issue has come up when the individual does some 
kind of business for state and local government.
To complete your tasks, use the following site link:  Test Page for the 
Web Accessibility Initiative  You will repeat this site link after each 
task to reduce paging as you work through this document.

Task 1: Go to the Getting Started Link site.
Test Page for the Web Accessibility Initiative
Move around it a little. How is the feel?

Write your response for Task 1, here:

The site is like any other site.  I like the layout of the site with no 
java or unwanted graphics.




Task 2: Using the site link, answer the question: What is WAI?

Test Page for the Web Accessibility Initiative

Write your response for Task 2, here:

Web Accessibility Initiative



Task 3:  From the information you find on the Test Page site, answer the 
following question:
If  I want to evaluate a web site for accessibility what resources will 
help?
  Test Page for the Web Accessibility Initiative
  Write your response for Task 3, here:


Task 4:  From the information you find on the Test Page site, answer the 
following questions:
  Test Page for the Web Accessibility Initiative
  Write your response for Task 4, here:

Task 5:  Using the Test Page link below,  "Find the UAAG 1.0 FAQ." 
Then, from the UAAG 10 FAQ, "Find the UAAG 1.0 Testimonials"
Test Page for the Web Accessibility Initiative

  Write your response for Task 5, here:

Could you find the UAAG 1.0 FAQ page?

Yes, its on the menu.
Could you find the UAAG 1.0 Testimonials page?
Yes, its on the menu.

Task 6: Your team at work is developing a Web site and you have some 
concerns about how accessible the Web site might be to people with 
disabilities. Using the Test Page Web site below, determine whether or 
not it contains information about the basic things Web developers need 
to know about Web accessibility.
Test Page for the Web Accessibility Initiative
  Write your response for Task 6, here:

The answer is clearly defined on the website, but I find myself clicking 
on the body of the page and ending up on a broken link instead of using 
the left hand menu.

Now answer the following questions as best as possible.

A.	How does the general information architecture and navigation design 
work?
You need to have a link to have the browser go back to top.  I find 
myself scrolling back to the top too many times.  This can be very 
annoying and difficult for someone that has limited movements.

Could you perform the tasks? Was it easy, hard, so-so?
So-so.

B. Is the expanding, collapsing node concept intuitive?

C. Note that some pages, "annotated navigation pages,"  just get you 
around.  Other pagers, "content pages,"  are dedicated primarily to 
content, i.e., the actual UAAG page. Were the "annotated navigation 
pages" understandable in their relationship to the hierarchical 
navigation to actual content?

The content is well done, but it is also too dry.  Example links would 
be helpful after the explanation.

D. How comfortable or uncomfortable were you when one node is expanded 
and the peer nodes are not?

I am glad to see that the site is not using any cast tiles for the menus.

E. Is the presentation and interaction of the lower levels under UAAG 
links understandable?
Yes.
