RE: Redesign ready to use [was: WAI Website Redesign Beta for Review]


Did you consider a more advanced keyboard skip feature like the PayPal SkipTo.js utility?

Subject: Redesign ready to use [was: WAI Website Redesign Beta for Review]

Hi, WAI Interest Group Participants,

We made several user interface changes since the beta version we announced in March (e-mail below). The updated redesign of the WAI website is now available from:

*We encourage you to use the beta now to get familiar with it*. We expect to replace the existing WAI website in May.

The new website makes it easier to find and use information to help you improve web accessibility. It has significant revisions for better usability, readability, skimmability, findability, discoverability, and content throughout. The visual design, information architecture, and navigation is all new. Much of the content is revised. It's also easier for the community to be involved in improving resources. Many content updates are already done in the beta, and others are planned for the coming months.

Please see <> for:
* Known issues we're working on
* Updated status information
* Acknowledgements
* How to comment links

We welcome your help in sharing this information widely.
