I like both your suggestions and prefer one of them to "Optimizing..." but I can live with keeping it as it is. 

 

Also he wrote:

I'm not sure I understand the suggestion about adding the word needs before the list of different disabilities as I don't see the listing of disabilities relating to needs. I suggest that we put needs into the second sentence: "They have different experiences, different expectations, different needs, and different preferences."

	It's time to start a little brainstorm on "Optimizing User Involvement".  Here are my two suggestions:
	
	Involving Users Effectively
	Getting the Most from Users
	
	I have read the section on "Involving Diverse Users" twice, and I think that the issue of "need" that Henk raised is actually addressed in the latter part of the first paragraph.  However the sentence "People have different disabilities..."  could be changed to People have different disabilities [and needs]..."
	
	In the second paragraph of "Optimizing User Involvement".  I suggest the following.  Move the sentece before the list to after the list.  Also, either include the list within the paragraph flow, or use a definition list.  The final result would be: 
	
	...from brief consultations to large-scale usability studies. ...  (inline descriptions of, or definition list for - informal and formal evaluation) ... There are many options in between these extremes.

		I think it is now near ready to call Version 1.0 done. The content is all in place and all that is needed is a minor copyedit with a fresh perspective. Next steps for EOWG are: 
		1. final EOWG review (via e-mail, I hope it won't need another teleconference discussion) 
		2. EOWG participants in good standing approve document via Call for Review survey form ("WBS") 
		
		***REPLY REQUESTED: If possible, I'd like to get step 1 completed by this coming Wednesday and be able to wrap up step 2 the next week. Please reply to this message by Wednesday 5 October stating:
