EOWG: Work for 13-16 April


Three items for this week are described below.
NOTE: If you reply to this message, please change the subject line to match the topic of your comments.

1. WAI-ARIA comments from EOWG. Two changes are listed at <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-eo/2009AprJun/0018.html>
Reply by Tuesday 14 April if you have additional comments or need more time to review.

2. Last week we discussed how and what to say in <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/people-use-web> about How People with Disabilities Use the Web not reflecting current best practice. Based on that discussion, here is a proposal:
The draft document will soon be updated to reflect current best practice. We expect it to be completed and published by 2010, as part of the WAI-AGE Project.
(The previous versions said: "While the document is fully developed and provides relevant information, it is an old draft and a little of the terminology and techniques are not current best practice. The document is schedule to be updated and completed as part of the current WAI-AGE Project." and "Note that it is an old draft and some of the techniques and terminology are out-of-date. The document is schedule to be updated and completed in 2009 or 2010.")

Please send any comments and suggestions for different wording to the list by Thursday 16 April.

3. eGov comments from EOWG. If you have not already done so, please read "Improving Access to Government through Better Use of the Web" <http://www.w3.org/TR/egov-improving/> Look specifically for where they should be addressing accessibility but are not.

Sharron is updating our comments based on last week's EOWG discussion, which are at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/comments/eGov-2009-04.html>

Please schedule time latter this week to review our comments once they are updated. They include suggested wording that EOWG needs to review.
