Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has updated:
	Before and After Demonstration (BAD) at
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/

BAD is useful for presentations, for learning about specific web accessibility barriers and their implications, and as an example of conformance evaluation reports. 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, and reports that list the accessibility problems for each page.

*We welcome your help telling other presenters, developers, teachers, trainers, and advocates about BAD*. Sample wording that you can use for your own blog posts, newsletter articles, etc. is available in a Promoting BAD wiki page, under “Draft blog posts, newsletter blurbs, etc.” at http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Promoting_BAD
(If you write a blog, newsletter article, or such, please let us know by sending e-mail to wai-eo-editors@w3.org )

Comments: We have a 'wish list' for improving and expanding BAD in the future – such as adding WAI-ARIA, video, and scripting. We welcome your input. Please send any comments or questions on BAD to the publicly-archived list: wai-eo-editors@w3.org

Acknowledgments: BAD was developed and updated as part of the European Commission-funded WAI-TIES and WAI-AGE projects. Thanks also to contributors listed at: http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/acks.html

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