I think I like Option 2 better, in terms of the flow.  The only differences I noticed between Options 1 and 2 are in the “research” sentence and in the “described” vs “organized” sentence – all other text seems the same to me..  Maybe just show the differences between 1 and 2 without having to read 2 all over again to figure out the differences.     Do we define what a “user group” is, or are there well-defined user groups?   That is the only issue I have..

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.



Option 2.

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 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.
