Hi Everyone,


Today's meeting went a bit over time and some additional concerns were
raised about the wording of design principle #9.  Here's my attempt to
capture all of the concerns, so let's spend a bit of time reviewing this by
email to see if we can come to agreement early in our Friday meeting.
Here's the current wording from today's meeting with a few tweaks ... hack
away:


Be data-informed and evidence-based where possible.  We recognize that
> research and evidence are influenced by the number of people with a
> particular disability, by the size of the body of research, and by the
> difficulty in capturing data regarding some disabilities or combination of
> disabilities.  The intent is to make informed decisions wherever possible
> to ensure that the needs of all people with disabilities are prioritized
> equally, including individualized needs that differ from the majority. In
> situations where there is no evidence or research, valid data-gathering
> methods should be used to obtain information from advocacy groups, people
> with lived experience and other subject matter experts.

*We put a man on the moon in the 1960's ... surely we can make information
technology fully accessible to people with disabilities.  It can be done
... it must be done ... it will be done!*
