EOWG,

At last week's teleconference, we discussed a change to the WAI site redesign specifications for presenting Announcements and Highlights on the WAI home page.[1] Based on that discussion, the redesign analysis work done over the last year, and followup work this week, we offer a revised proposal:

* Summary: Announcements positioned in the right column and including upcoming meetings and selected documents
* prototype: http://www.w3.org/WAI/ut3/
* specifications, requirements, notes: http://www.w3.org/WAI/highlights/planning.html

Please review the documents above in preparation for this week's EOWG teleconference. Focus your review on:

1. How well does this proposal facilitate users accomplishing tasks such as:
a. [TOP PRIORITY!] This is my first time to visit the WAI home page- I need the basics about WAI, like what do they do anyway?!
b. I come to the new WAI home page every week or two and want to find the latest info.
c. Judy said I could find a link to the latest WCAG 2 Working Draft and recent presentations on the WAI home page, [Announcements section in the right column].
d. [low priority] I wonder if WAI is going to be in my area of the world any time this summer?
...

2. Does this proposal meet the need of making the home page seem friendly for "newbies" (e.g., by not putting "Working Group meetings" top, center) as well as the other issues discussed at the last teleconference and identified in the UCD analysis?

3. Is it fairly easy to figure out which information is static, and which information changes frequently?

4. Will announcements be "above the fold" (that is, visible without scrolling) on _most_ _common_ configurations?

Feel free to send comments to the list before the teleconference!

Regards,
~ Shawn & Justin
