Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has published:
    Introduction to "How People with Disabilities Use the Web"
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/people-use-web

The main "How People with Disabilities Use the Web" draft document provides detailed examples of people with different disabilities using websites, applications, browsers, and authoring tools. The document will soon be updated to reflect current best practice. The Introduction page linked above provides a stable reference link to get to the latest version of the main document.

Please do not link to, reference, or quote the draft of the main document because it is currently an unapproved internal draft and some of the techniques and terminology are out-of-date; for example, WCAG 2.0 is now recommended instead of WCAG 1.0.
Instead, please link to the Introduction to "How People with Disabilities Use the Web" page at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/people-use-web>, which will always point to the latest version of the main document.

We expect to have an updated draft of the main document "How People with Disabilities Use the Web" in 2009.

Please feel free to circulate this message, avoiding cross-postings as possible.

Regards,
~Shawn Henry, EOWG Chair
