EOWG,

I have updated the "Benefits of WCAG 2.0" slides based on feedback from today's teleconference[1]. See http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/slides/WCAG2_benefits-new.ppt

(For those who didn't see today's agenda: changes from the previous version are indicated in the Notes with ++changed.)

These slides are now done, except for slide 8. Sharron will be updating the HTML version next week. Therefore, if you have any comments, it would be nice to send them *by Wednesday 24 June*. Remember to send copyedits and things that do not require EOWG review to wai-eo-editors@w3.org

Notes on image alt:[2]
- The decorative images have no/null alt in both the ppt and the html. They are noted in the Notes section.
- The logos have appropriate alt text.
- The color contrast screen capture's alt is "(screen capture described in Notes section)".
- The screen capture of the Quick Reference has no alt; "Quick Reference screen shot" is the heading of the slide (which is not displayed); and there is a detailed description of the image at the bottom of the Notes. This provides a detailed description without interrupting the flow on the slide text and main notes.
- Slide 15 (Techniques document) & 27 (Understanding document) have text in an image (because it matches the images used elsewhere, such as http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag20). Currently they have no alt, and are described in detail at the bottom of the Notes. Putting the description there lets us use formatting such as bullets and italics, which would not be available in alt.

Comments welcome on this approach to alt for these images.

Thanks,
~Shawn


[1] Changes on Friday 19 June:

* updated the alt for images

* moved the note to presenters about reading the slide text from slide 4 to slide 2

* added to the slide "Cooperation with other [@@standards and policies]":
Note to presenters: If there are policies that reference WCAG 2.0 or directly relate to WCAG 2.0 in the organization, country, or other area related to your audience, consider listing those on the slide and mentioning the relationship. To find out about local policies, you can:
- search in Policies Relating to Web Accessibility <http://www.w3.org/WAI/Policy/>
- send an email to the WAI Interest Group (IG) mailing list <http://www.w3.org/WAI/IG/#mailinglist>

* added to the slide "Authorized Translations":
Note to presenters: If there are WCAG 2.0 translations in the languages of your audience, consider including the link to the translation(s) in the slide.

[2] Instructions for adding alt to images is in the ppt Help... however, I didn't figure out how to do it without the mouse. :(
