Yeah that is my thinking too. It's better that way.  In that case you would
have to remove the bolding from the word "and" which is my preference
throughout anyway.

we could try a comma after adaptable.

 

"Make information adaptable, and available to assistive technologies."

I think it would be better not to bold the "and" words. I realize that it is
an attempt to accent the important part of the sentence (as one idea) but I
think it would be cognitively better to have the two key words bolded
separately, removing the bold formatting from the "and" word joining them.

 

Also, I think Johnny webmaster will have a little trouble understanding
this.

 

"Make information adaptable and available to assistive technologies."

 

The grammatical problem is that if we remove the joiner, it should be able
to read "make information adaptable to assistive technologies" which I don't
think is good grammar. it just sounds a bit out. But I don't know what else
short I would suggest. Adaptability and availability are two separate
concepts that seem squished together as one thing in the same sentence for
brevity sake.

 

I'll sleep on it.

The "WCAG 2.0 at a Glance" is nearing final - and will be cast in plastic
soon.  

 

http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/glance/

 

 

There are only 4 words different from earlier versions  (this is the SAME as
the one posted by Shawn on tues)

 

Please look at this carefully.  EO asked that we touch base on this on our
call tomorrow to see if there are any more tune ups.
