Hi All,
Here's a quick feedback from reviewing and comparing both documents :
1. I've read both documents as if I were a web developer interested in
making my site accessible.

My feeling is that when reading the "revised document", I don't really know
to what extent I would have to involve for this. It appears that addressing
web accessibility mainly relies on tools and software, even if the document
sometimes refers to "techniques". Then I don't really understand what would
be my role and/or my benefits, as a web developer, on fixing accessibility
issues, and what kind of human help and advice I can get (training,

2. To me, it is not clear enough that web accessibility topic should not
only be considered during development, but also all along the site's life.

3. Unless, I've missed it, I can see any references to assistive
technologies that can also help in accessing the WEB.

Note that we hope to post the updated version after the teleconference on
Friday, and so might need to categorize suggestions as required for this
next version, or as OK for later versions. We do have plans for minor
revisions within the next couple of months as referenced documents evolve,
such as the Evaluation Resource Suite upcoming re-works.
