Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

Some times you want to quickly assess if a web page addresses accessibility. Some times people without accessibility expertise want to know if a web page addresses accessibility.

For these situations and more, WAI is drafting a new document:
       *Easy Checks - A First Review of Web Accessibility*
        http://www.w3.org/WAI/eval/preliminary

It provides simple steps for anyone who can use the web; no accessibility knowledge or skill is required. The checks cover just a few accessibility issues and are designed to be quick and easy, rather than definitive.

We welcome your suggestions and comments on this draft. You can send them to the publicly-archived mailing list:
      wai-eo-editors@w3.org

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your comments.
Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.

Regards,
Shawn Henry, EOWG Chair
