Updated Final Draft: How to Make Presentations Accessible to All


I've updated the "For More Information" section at http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/training/access_pres#fyi based on Andrew's input from Friday and munging with the other links. This revision should be all done now except for the updated expand-collapse functionality.

Let me know right away if you have any comments.

Otherwise, we'll announce it soon.

  Hi all,

I've made the changes based on last week's telecon and input in the wiki. The latest draft revision is at:

The main edit was under Under Basics, I changed in the first couple paragraphs
FROM: "This page helps organizers and speakers meet accessibility needs by ensuring the facility is accessible, speaking clearly into the microphone, describing pertinent visuals, and more.
<p>While many things are covered here, be open for other accessibility issues and respect participant's needs. People might have accessibility needs that you haven't thought of...."
TO: "Therefore, organizers and speakers should do things like ensure the facility is accessible, speak clearly into the microphone, describe pertinent visuals, and other considerations listed on this page.
<p>Respect participant's needs and be open for other accessibility issues. While most issues are addressed here, people might have specific accessibility needs that aren't covered here and you didn't think of....."

Other changes are listed here: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/changelogs/cl-training#cl2010May24

Please submit any additional comments by *Wednesday 25 Jan*. As soon as the content is stable, we'll start asking for translations.
(REMINDER: It's not yet ready to promote -- we're still tweaking the expand-collapse functionality.)
