Great work! Here some thoughts for discussion:

* I like the first paragraph of the document a lot. Will "How People
with Disabilities Use the Web" be also made into a link once its

* In paragraph 2 "Why Web Accessibility is Important", I am missing
leisure (i.e. day-to-day) as one of the key factors but I'm not sure how
to word it or fit it in.

* "Making the Web Accessible": in my opinion I feel that the first
paragraph does not speak to me as someone new to Web accessibility as it
goes into too much details about tools and technologies. How about
making this paragraph even more higher level and move this paragraph as

to explain what is meant by "Web tools" which is used throughout the

* Finally and to be picky, in "Making a Specific Site Accessible" I
suggest to add "or redesign projects" to the end of the second sentence

Subject: document for review week of 19 July 2004


At the upcoming EOWG teleconference on Friday we will discuss the
"Introduction to Web Accessibility"
   - latest revision with most edits complete:
   - previous versions: www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/intro-old
   - mini requirements & changelog: www.w3.org/WAI/EO/changelogs/intro

Please review the document before the meeting and send any issues to the
EOWG list for discussion. I will try to collect all of them before the
EOWG teleconference. See also:

- Feel free to send typos and other edits that do not need discussion to
wai-eo-editors@w3.org so as not to clutter up the EOWG issues
- Please keep in mind the requirements, such as wanting to keep the
document very simple for people who know nothing about Web
- Reminder that we are focusing on content only for now - not layout and
design, which will be determined with site redesign.
