The face to face was very interesting and helpful in getting international
perspectives as well as expectations and uses of the guidelines.

 

It also highlighted our timeline.  If we are to make our schedule of having
something out by a year from now, it turns out that we need to have
essentially a completed set of guidelines by September.  Only by having an
essentially completed set in September would we be able to go through the
various steps of testing, implementation, and the level of reviews and
candidacy necessary to have it out by next summer.

 

Yes, that means we will have to be busy and productive this summer.  It also
means that the same efficient pace we have been using lately to move forward
will need to be continued.

 

I want to thank everyone who has been participating so well and productively
of late and to invite everyone else who is interested in providing input to
jump in now.  

*         Take the guidelines and give them a good read.  

*         Grab the open issues list and see if you can propose a solution to
one.

*         Whenever you think of a problem, try to propose a solution.

 

It's kind of exciting to see 2.0 coming together.  There is a lot of work
left to do.

 

Oh yes - and we have one very big element that was highlighted at the face
to face.  The guidelines themselves are very hard to interpret without the
technique specific checklists. Without the checklists, WCAG 1.0 is actually
much easier for people to use.  The checklist will therefore have to be a
high priority as we move forward.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Gregg
