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.

 web technologies for users with learning disabilities or cognitive

 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.
