From: Shawn Henry <shawn@w3.org>
Date: Wed, 28 May 2008 19:43:51 -0500
Message-ID: <483DFC47.2020107@w3.org>
To: "EOWG (E-mail)" <w3c-wai-eo@w3.org>


Updated "Benefits of WCAG 2.0" presentation material is at:

Please review it, send comments to the list, and prepare to discuss it at the upcoming teleconference. Specifically:
* Does this cover the topic sufficiently? Is anything missing?
Note that we want this to be very tightly focused on the benefits; the About WCAG presentation <http://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/WCAG20_about/> covers broader topics.
* Is there anything we might want to cut to make it shorter and more succinct? 

Background e-mail is below.
Minutes from previous EOWG discussion is at <http://www.w3.org/2008/05/09-eo-minutes#item03>
