Lisa ,

 

I am good with either one – but I think the first sentence of either need to include “identifies” as in “Cognitive Accessibility User Research identifies and describes the challenges of using web technologies for users with learning disabilities or cognitive disabilities.”

Subject: Abstract for the Cognitive Accessibility User Research

 


We have two proposed abstracts for the user research module.
Option 1.

Cognitive Accessibility User Research describes the challenges of using 
web technologies for users with learning disabilities or cognitive 
disabilities. This basis will support subsequent documents that will 
suggest potential strategies to improve accessibility for these user 
groups, and identify gaps in the features of current technologies and 
guidelines to fulfill those strategies. The research includes 
challenges in the areas of  language and  literacy, memory, 
perception, attention,  executive function, knowledge and reasoning.
 It describes the user groups of the 
following disabilities: Aging-Related Cognitive Decline, Aphasia, 
Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Down Syndrome, 
Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, and Non-Verbal. Additional user groups may be 
added to future versions.

suggest potential strategies to improve accessibility for these user 
groups, and identify gaps in the features of current technologies and 
guidelines to fulfill those strategies. The research describes 
challenges in the areas of attention, behavior, executive function, 
knowledge, language and figurative language, literacy, memory, 
perception, and reasoning. It is organized by user groups of the 
following disabilities: Aging-Related Cognitive Decline, Aphasia, 
Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Down Syndrome, 
Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, and Non-Verbal. Additional user groups may be 
added to future versions. 



Let me know if you have any issues with either of the above. If not we will decide on the call later today.
