Hi everyone,
A while back when I first started sharing new access issues with paypal, 
someone  suggested I discover the person responsible for accessibility 
there.
I have a name, a linked-in  profile, even a job description.  However none 
of the at least 25 Paypal supervisors with whom i have had discussions over 
the past several months, know her, or can reach her if a customer is meeting 
with an accessibility issue.
My latest? The previously functional from the keyboard button on invoice 
forms labeled pay now, is coded as harmless.  Doing nothing when using an 
enter key in elinks.  a browser that is more java script friendly then 
others like links or certainly lynx, all of which are distributed in Linux 
packages like Ubuntu.
I will place her information below.

Cathy O'Connor
Program Manager, Accessibility at PayPal

Program Manager, Accessibility
PayPal
November 2014 ~V Present )|PayPal

Keeping PayPal products and services accessible to people of all
abilities.
Make sure product managers, designers and developers understand
why accessibility is important by using simulations and assistive
technology to gain first-hand experience of how people use
computers differently in our accessibility showcase.
Provide consulting, training and tools to make it as easy as
possible for teams to design, develop and deliver products that
can be used by as many people as possible.

Given her job description,  why is there no way to report the issues she 
is paid to address?  Granted the simulations sentence concerns me, reading 
a bit like pretending to experience a disability.  I find it difficult to 
understand how someone could secure this job knowing noting of...
www.w3c.org/wai
Anyone know if she  is a real person?
Thanks,
Karen
