Hi Folks

Please can you volunteer for putting success criteria into the WCAG template by signing up here:

Writing up according to the template:

I made a sample at : (note this does not follow the template right now but has all the content - I will try to update it to the new template soon)

It is worth looking at wcag 2.O such as to see the kind of wording used in WCAG.

Comply with:

Also, realy realy important , is we want to get these passed, to do this we realy want to:

  *   show the benefits including any evidence and
  *   show test-ability
  *   make it clear
you can see an example of a general test procedure here:

Some thing we might want to clarify s that people with cognitive disabilities include many types of disabilities such as
people with

  *   Language related disabilities
  *   Memory related disabilities
  *   Focus and attention related disabilities
  *   Executive and decision making disabilities

 What wording to start with?

we have the SC proposal at <><>

However we have split up some of them

I suggested looking at the SC in the full proposal and seeing if it is redone in the rewording. If it is use the new wording, but use  the exceptions terms and techniques in the original proposal.  If needed I will merge them once the proposal  is approved by the group

All the best
