Re: Accessibility curriculum development - meet at W3C TPAC

Hi, Suzette.

The work you are doing on the Design for All project looks amazing,  
and perfectly inline with the curriculum efforts that are currently  
happening within the various OWEA member organizations. It sounds like  
Chris Mills of Opera, and Doug Schepers of W3 will be in touch with  
you soon regarding the intersections of our efforts. As the lead of  
the InterACT curriculum project (, I  
would certainly be interested discussing a point of collaboration.  
Perhaps we could assemble a few OWEA members working on curricula to  
have a call with you sometime soon?
