Hi all,

I'm conducting a short survey of awareness of alternatives to WCAG as
part of some research we're doing here in Dundee.

I'd be very grateful if you could take a moment to reply to me directly
with your level of awareness of each of the 6 sets of guidelines listed
below, each of which either partially or totally focuses on web
accessibility issues.

Please reply to me at dsloan@computing.dundee.ac.uk, using the following
scale to indicate your level of awareness for each set of guidelines:

Level of awareness:
1 - I've never heard of them.
2 - I've heard of them but never read them.
3 - I've read them but never used them in my work.
4 - I've used them occasionally to inform my work.
5 - I use them regularly.

Guidelines:

A. Beyond ALT Text: Usability for Disabled Users (Nielsen Norman Group)

B. Web Usability for Senior Citizens: 46 Design Guidelines Based on
Usability Studies with People Age 65 and Older (Nielsen Norman Group)

C. Research-based Web Design and Usability Guidelines (National Cancer
Institute)

D. Making your web site senior-friendly - a checklist (National
Institute on Ageing and National Library of Medicine)

E. Guidelines for Accessible and Usable Web Sites: Observing Users Who
Work With Screen Readers (Theofanos and Redish)

F. Research-derived web design guidelines for older people (Kurniawan
and Zaphiris)


Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best wishes,
David
