Hi Norah and Sylvie,

Thank you for providing the Editing Plan for the resource and the
additional questions. The planning team met this morning to discuss and
provide feedback. Sorry for the delay of the response. We had an email
listserve issue. Below is a bulleted list of the feedback and
recommendations that we would like you to add to you editing plan.

*Feedback and recommendations to add to plan emailed below:*

   - Continue with the editing of the user stories - Going good!
   - Yes to "Simplify and Tersify"
   - Yes to "Bullets and Graphics"
   - Yes to "Front Loaded Action"
   - Accessibility Principles page -- Resolution was passed that this page
   will be up a level in the Navigation. It will no longer be a specific
   sub-page in this resource suite. Please take a pass at seeing what it might
   need for context since it will be outside of the "How People with
   Disabilities use the Web" wrapper soon.
   - Pages re-titled - Resolutions were passed for the following name
   changes:
      - "Diversity of Web Users" is now named "Diverse Abilities and
      Barriers"
      - "Diversity in Web Use" is now named "Tools and Techniques"
   - Agree with minor updates to the two pages in previous bullets. Take a
   pass at light edits on them. Then maybe create GitHub issues for small
   review team to add comments on what needs to be tweaked on those two pages
   for final edits. Or you can wait until all is ready for small review team
   to review all at once.
   - If you want to recommend graphics for certain areas, please make a
   list of what is needed and we can send them to the designer to see if they
   can be created.
   - Agree to linking to Web Accessibility Perspectives
   <https://www.w3.org/WAI/perspectives/> videos. Maybe also find a place
   to link to Tips for Getting Started with Web Accessibility
   <https://www.w3.org/WAI/gettingstarted/tips/index>.
   - I (Brent) have reached out to COGA. Their timeline will not align with
   our launch date, but they will review in the future. I will keep up with
   them and bring them in at a later date.

With this feedback integrated in you plan, it is approved and you are good
to go. Please keep up the great work as you go through the edits and work
with your review team to get to a final draft. Remember, if you have any
questions at all, please reach out to me right away and I will get you what
you need to keep moving forward.

Please let us know if you have any questions about what we have added.
Happy to provide more detail if needed.

Thanks,
Brent (& Planning Team)

Subject: 	How People with Disabilities use the Web planned revisions
and content questions

Hello Shadi, Sylvie, Brent, Sharron, and Shawn,

The resource, “How People with Disabilities Use the Web,” consists of
several in-depth pages, including Stories of Web Users, Diversity of
Web Users, Diversity in Web Use and Accessibility Principles. The
co-editors are seeking to:

   - Simplify & Tersify — Make content simple and brief. Cut words.
Cut Sentences.
   - Bullets & Graphics — Break up passages into bullets when
appropriate. Suggest graphics.
   - Front-loaded Action — Use active voice, and action statements.

​
​
We have determined this process is needed for Stories of Web Users and
we’ve agreed upon a draft format for the first story, which basically
reduces the word count in half while conveying the important content
from the original story. The other stories are currently being revised
using the same type of approach.​

To me, the other resources, Diversity of Web Users, Diversity in Web
Use and Accessibility Principles may not be in need of the same type
of revision (goal of reducing content by 50% or so).  The content of
these resources (Diversity of Web Users, Diversity in Web Use and
Accessibility Principles) is broken up into bullets, and is written
using active, action statements. The main revision could be adding
graphics or linking to the web perspective videos. What are the
thoughts of the co-editors and EO chair review team on this? Would
this be a good question to ask the reviewers for their feedback?

   - https://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/people-use-web/diversity

Also, should the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility
Task Force (Cognitive A11Y TF) be consulted for suggested revisions to
section: Examples of cognitive, learning, and neurological
disabilities?


Thanks very much,
Norah
