EOWG,

Updated "Benefits of WCAG 2.0" presentation material is now at:
  <http://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/WCAG20_benefits/WCAG20_benefits-presentation-format.ppt>

Based on last week's teleconference discussion, I changed the following:
* In the WCAG 2.0 slide, from "Defines functionality for users" to "Defines functionality required by users"
* In the Techniques slide, from "Provides examples for developers" to "Provides “how to” examples for developers"

Sharron (and Wayne?) are working on the HTML version.

If you have any additional comments, please send them by *Wednesday 11 June*, as previously requested.
* Send comments for EOWG to review to this list w3c-wai-eo@w3.org
* Send typos and other comments just for the editors to wai-eo-editors@w3.org (also a publicly-archived list)

Background is in e-mails below.

Thanks,
~Shawn

EOWG,

Updated "Benefits of WCAG 2.0" presentation material is at:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/presentations/WCAG20_benefits/WCAG20_benefits-presentation-format.ppt

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 [9 May] EOWG discussion is at <http://www.w3.org/2008/05/09-eo-minutes#item03>

Regards,
~Shawn
