I got somewhat behind on this project the last few weeks, but
hopefully I've straightened out enough of my schedule that we
won't have repeat problems like this. In fact, given the feedback
from some of you, the pace may be just fine.
As a reminder, the project is described at:
Our goal, of course, is twofold: For us, together, to improve our
own knowledge of accessibility issues and make our websites more
accessable to a universal audience; and to provide specific feed-
back on the W3C's accessibility guidelines.
So far, we've completed this much:
- Questionnaire #1: Preliminary Information
- Questionnaire #2: Pre-Implementation Guidlines Review
The next two items on the agenda are as follows:
Create a document that describes the accessibility policy and
procedures for your website, and how you will implement the WAI
guidelines on your site. The AGI project coordinators will work
with project participants on developing these proposals. (These
may be used as examples of accessibility plans or policies,
posted on the Guild's website.)
Pre-Implementation Critique (existing websites only)
Existing sites should be submitted to the hwg-critique mailing
list, requesting an evaluation of the site with accessibility
issues in mind. An introduction to, and explanation of, the AGI
project will be posted to hwg-critique before the AGI
evaluations are requested.
These are the next things we need to do; they don't have to be
done in any particular order, however. I will be sending to the
list tonight the following pieces of email:
A template form by Fred Barnett that you can use for critique
A more detailed set of instructions for getting a critique of
your site done; and
Some pointers and advice on how to draft your accessibility
plan, including how to submit it, and some examples.
Other status items:
I will be updating the AGI page soon, yes. I need to finish
entering all of the participants in a database, and that should
be done within a week.
