User Materials Task Force:
I’m still working on the full minutes.
The main conclusion of our Thursday 
August 31 meeting was that we must 
identify our audience more clearly. 
 To this end we decide to each build 
personas that are likely users of 
these materials.  Here are the 

Shawn and Wayne:  Examine existing 
personas for probable audience 
members.  If not present, assign 
disabilities to some of these 
William: Focus on beginners... Elderly 
with reticence regarding IT..
Doyle: Deaf radio (audio streaming) 
users... Corporate users
Helle: Disability Organization 
Advocates... one other of Helle’s 

This weekend think about these 
personas and send in two sentence 
descriptions to the list by Monday for 
duplicate editing.  Then we should 
develop these personas in detail for 
the Thursday 8/7 meeting.
