Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

W3C WAI invites feedback on a new resource:
    How to Make Presentations Accessible to All
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible

This new resource helps you make presentations, talks, meetings, and training accessible to all of your potential audience, including people with disabilities and others. It covers planning, preparing slides, providing accessible material, considerations during your session, and more. It also mentions some of the many benefits of inclusive presentations.

WAI encourages you to use this draft resource, and let us know how it works for you and how we can improve it. For example, we are considering making the information under the headings expandable and collapsible. Please send comments to the publicly-archived e-mail list:
    wai-eo-editors@w3.org
    by 19 July 2010

You can also share your ideas as comments on the blog post:
    Make Your Presentations Accessible to All
    http://www.w3.org/QA/2010/06/make_your_presentations_access.html

This resource was developed by the Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) as part of its Training Resource Suite, which is being updated as part of the WAI-AGE Project. WAI-AGE is a European Commission IST Specific Support Action, with the goal of increasing accessibility of the Web for older people as well as for people with disabilities. WAI-AGE is introduced at:
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/WAI-AGE/

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your comments.

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.

Regards,
~Shawn Henry, EOWG Chair
