Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) invites you to comment on:
     Before and After Demonstration (BAD)
     http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/

BAD shows an inaccessible website and a retrofitted version of the same website with the accessibility barriers fixed. BAD has in-line notes ("annotations") for you to get more information. It also includes evaluation reports that list the accessibility problems for each page.

BAD is useful for presentations, for learning about specific web accessibility barriers and their implications, and as an example of conformance evaluation reports.

We would like to know how this updated WAI resource works for you and how we can improve it. (Adding video, scripting, and WAI-ARIA are already on the list of enhancements that we would like to implement in BAD.) Please send comments to the publicly-archived list:
     wai-eo-editors@w3.org

Background: BAD was first developed with support of the EC-funded WAI-TIES Project. It was updated for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and to better cover accessibility issues of older users as part of the EC-funded WAI-AGE Project. Information on these past projects is available at:
     http://www.w3.org/WAI/TIES/
     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.
