Last week I spoke to the Provosts of 
the 23 campuses explaining how they 
would proceed with implementing IT 
Accessibility across the system.  This 
was not a pitch.  It was a pep talk 
letting them know they could do it. 
 The talk was well received.

Next Monday we will hold a conference 
for the Accessibility Teams from each 
campus and explain how we are going to 
turn this system around in the next 
three years.  Our bottom line is 
Section 508, but we encourage better 
practice for new sites and 
procurements.  I am attaching the 
original memorandum for completeness 
(forgive the PDF) together with my 
outline of basic concepts for 
developing an accessible web 
environment.  These are not technocal 
guidelines, but process steps  for 
managers, developers and content 
providers.

My friend Tom Jewett has developed a 
nice reference on 508 compliance to 
hand out at the meeting

For the course outline of a Web Class 
Tom and I developed look at
