Hi All
I see Shawn is making further changes to this document today and it is
coming together well. (
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Web_Accessibility_Basics). I have added 3
additional comments to the revised version for discussion.  I am happy to
make changes for next week if you agree to my comments.
Apologies for absence today,
Best wishes
Suzette

>>  Hi all,
>>
>> First, reminders:
>> * The primary audience for this page is individual developers who are
>> already working in the field (as opposed to new students) (which is why the
>> business case is at the end)
>> * Approach: Briefly introduce key topics and documents, and encourage
>> readers to follow the links to read the docs.
>> * We'd like to use wording from approved WAI publications where it works,
>> rather than using lots of new wording on this page. (for consistency and to
>> shortcut additional vetting needed)
>>
>> I think we were starting to stray from these. Based on comments from
>> Vicki in the wiki and from Sharron via e-mail, and getting back to the
>> approach that we previously defined, I've take an edit pass at the
>> document. Since it is a fairly radical edit, I left the current draft as is
>> and put the new version in a separate wiki page at:
>>     http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Basics_draft_2
>>
>> To make it easier to read, I also removed comments from that new version.
>>
>> Please review this edited Basics draft this week and either:
>> * add comments throughout the original page
>> http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Web_Accessibility_Basics
>> * add comments in the discussion tab of the new version
>> http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Talk:Basics_draft_2
>> * send comments in e-mail
>>
>> Let's see if we can get agreement on this page this week.
>>
>> Thanks!

>> * Edited

>>
>> * For intro paragraph under "Understand how people use the Web" at
>> http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/wiki/Web_Accessibility_Basics#Understand_how_people_use_the_WebI added some ideas after Suzette's edit.
