Hi All

We have the following wonderful volunteers:

 Prof Kinshuk  and  Joseph  O Conner: non-vocal
Lisa with Cynthia: dyslexia
Barry Johnson: Add / ADHD
Debra Ruh: down syndrom
Deborah Dahl: Asphasia
Katie and Mary Jo : Aging and dementia

Mark Sadecki : Autism
We have a wicky at http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Gap_Analysis. If you are already a task force member you can follow the link to the new page for your work and start editing. (I have started working on the link to dyslexia so you can look at that). If you are not yet in the w3c you can send your work to me or Michael and we can add it to the Wiki for you. 

As mentioned on the wiki, our tentative template is:

  Persona / description, 
 Cognitive functions, 
 Their challenges 
 Scenario and user story 
 How they use the web and ICT to include: Email, apps, voice systems, IM 
 How they use optimized content and special pages 
 Characteristics of content optimized for this group 
 Specific technologies (reference section bellow and how they use it differently) 
 Summary Existing research and guidelines 
 Extent to which current needs are met 
 Potentials and possibilities 
 References to research. 

All the best

I could help with aphasia, which isn’t one of the listed topics, but is often associated with brain injury.

Subject: Volunteers for user group research modules

I mentioned before needing volunteers for user group research modules. Currently we are thinking of a minimum of dyslexia, brain injury sub set of functional impairments, non verbal,  dementia, ADD/ADHD, autism, down syndrome. Other are welcome.

Please let me know if you feel you would like to work any of these. It is important that people say what they can contribute to of these so we can identify if we need  more expertise in the task force.

All the best

Minuets of our meeting today will be available off our home page at http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/

We focused on putting together an outline for the gap analysis. Most of our work today is in our wiki at http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Main_Page

Please take a look at the User group research modules. We will need volenteres for  putting them together.

Note we also have an official mailing list at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-cognitive-a11y-tf/ for task force members. Once we all have managed to join the task force we will port to that list. 

Note there was room on the phone today, so feel free to call in tomorrow.

All the best
