RE: [EOWG] No meeting 17 April

Hi Laura,
What a great idea. Thank you for encouraging this in your organization. When you get a chance (and if you haven’t already yet) make sure to document the idea in the Promoting wiki page<>. Others may see it and do something similar. 😊

I just heard from my managers and they love the idea and will discuss in their weekly meeting.  A lot of federal govt employees are on administrative leave for at least part of their week.  This is the perfect time to get people trained.  I can also send to the Federal Web Managers list too.

Hi Shawn, Brent, and Sharron,

I wanted to let you know that I have been sharing the extension of the accessibility course to multiple channels at the Library.  We have many people looking for work at home.  I have suggested that supervisors could schedule the course as an assignment.   A few people have also reinforced this idea.  I’m not sure if it will get traction but will keep pushing the idea.

Hello EOWG,

There will be no teleconference meeting on Friday, 17 April.

While there is no meeting, there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes:

  *   The WAI Curriculum Task Force is being organized and initial meetings/work being planned
  *   ATAG Report Tool (ART) survey results are being analyzed and driving continued edits/updates to move draft closer to version 1 release
  *   The Accessibility Roles & Responsibilities Mapping (ARRM) small team is working on refining the decision tree and role definitions
  *   Editors are refining the WCAG Support Material redesign requirements document and user scenarios
  *   The 2020 EOWG Draft Charter is being reviewed and comments will be addressed as we go through the re-chartering process

Thank you all for helping us move these valuable projects along each and every week.

Also, a reminder that the W3Cx Introduction to Web Accessibility MOOC<> [1] has been extended through May. Take the course and tell others about it!

Brent, Sharron, and Shawn
