Hello everyone. Emma-Jane Hogbin and I are very happy to join the working
group as invited experts, and look forward to working with you all. Emma and
I are both representing the Guild of Accessible Web Designers (GAWDS). Many
thanks to Andrew Arch for encouraging us to apply.

Emma teaches web development at Humber College in Toronto, Canada. Her
classes focus on the practical side of accessible site development: web
standards, accessibility legislation, and adaptive technology. As a
technical documentation author, Emma focuses on learning styles and markup
languages. She regularly gives public lectures on writing documentation, and
delivering presentations. She is a member of GAWDS and a volunteer with The
Linux Documentation Project.

I run a web accessibility consultancy near Bath, UK, developing accessible
web applications such as GIS mapping, CMS and share trading tools, and
assisting a variety of clients to make their web sites more accessible
through formal audits, training, testing on a variety of access
technologies, and through usability testing with disabled users. I am a
member of GAWDS and, less actively, of the British Computer Society (BCS)
Disability Group.

We bring as a resource a back-up team of GAWDS members who will assist us
with delivering EOWG projects if required.
Jim Byrne (ScotConnect, UK), Jon Gibbins (November 5th Web Solutions, UK),
Grant Broome (CDSM Interactive Solutions Ltd, UK), Kyle Lamson (LSW Studios,
Germany) and Colin Steele (eConnected Ltd, UK) have all volunteered their

Kind regards to you all,

Liam McGee (and Emma-Jane Hogbin)
