Hi Andrew,

Thank you for the invitation to help with WAI resources on how User Experience Design plays into accessibility initiatives.

We have an old page "Involving Users in Web Accessibility Evaluation", which we are in the process of updating. We expect to publish the following pages very soon (probably this week):
* Involving Users in Web Projects for Better, Easier Accessibility http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/involving/
* Involving Users in Evaluating Web Accessibility http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/involving/new-users-eval
(Note that these URIs are drafts and therefore should not be referenced. To get notification when they are published, see [1].)

"Notes on User Centered Design Process (UCD)" was a tangential page related to our website redesign project years ago, and not a deliverable in its own right. However, we are considering updating it in 2010 to be a viable resource.

We welcome your input on any of these pages, as well as suggestions for other information that WAI might provide. Feel free to send your ideas to the publicly-archived list wai-eo-editors@w3.org
