RE: June 13 changes to Evaluating Web sites

Point 1. Here's a possible alternative:

   "While the process must start with page selection and conclude with the
   results report, the order of the intervening steps will vary for each

Point 3. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say

   "... to monitor problems identified in the comprehensive evaluation"

to avoid repeating the word identified (it sounds odd to identify problems
that were already identified).

Point 4. "usability testing" and "user testing of accessibility features"
are different. Maybe "accessibility testing by users" is more precise. The
term "accessibility features" gives me this impression that only specific
features concerned with accessibility are tested, which is very different to
usability testing.

Asunto: June 13 changes to Evaluating Web sites

Working draft copy is still:
Change log copy is still:

1. Added at [http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#clh ]
"(NOTE: while identifying the page selection is a key first step, and
summarizing and reporting the results of evaluation is the logical
conclusion, the order of the intervening steps is not crucial). [Or] (NOTE:
the order in which steps 2 through 4 are performed is not crucial and is
presented here as a suggestion only)."
You see what I am getting at here... I'm having trouble finding an elegant
way to phrase it.

2. On a recommendation from Sarah I moved:
"Notice: Sections 3 and 4 of this document are being considered for separate
publication as a W3C "Note"."
from the introduction of Section 3 to the end of the main introduction
[http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#cle ]

3.  Added a criterion for ongoing testing, and a clarifying note about
comprehensive testing at [http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#cli ]:

* automated or semi-automated tests to identify problems identified in the
comprehensive evaluation.

NOTE: A full conformance evaluation is not necessarily required at each
milestone in an ongoing review process.  Steps like repeated user testing
may only be required after major template or content changes.

4. Changed "usability testing" to "user testing of accessibility features"
[http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#clj ].
Also changed heading for section 3.4 from "Usability evaluation" to "User
testing of accessibility features" at
[http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#clk ]

5. Changed "top level page(s)" to "all pages on which people are more likely
to enter your site" in 2.1 [http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#cla ].
and 3.1.1 (although in Comprehensive this may change entirely once the
confusion over page selection and disclosure is resolved).
[http://www.starlingweb.com/wai/eval2.htm#clb ].

More changes coming soon.
