13:49:39 [SarahHorton]
Pete: Getting more description there
13:50:19 [SarahHorton]
Pete: Trying to make the text input bigger, so it's multi-line
13:51:21 [SarahHorton]
Pete: How do you learn about accessibility topics, want to see if they have go-to places
13:51:42 [SarahHorton]
Jennison: Ask whether they have people they do to, "colleague"
13:52:02 [SarahHorton]
13:52:38 [SarahHorton]
Jeanne: Would be helpful to create subset of questions, e.g., demographic questions, that we could include on every survey
13:53:07 [SarahHorton]
Pete: Are you familiar with WCAG guidelines, yes/no
13:53:38 [SarahHorton]
Pete: There's not skip logic currently, but may skip past next questions about the guidelines if they say no
13:54:17 [SarahHorton]
Pete: How well does the structure support learning and remembering?
13:55:11 [SarahHorton]
Pete: Question is from the Silver research questions
13:55:51 [SarahHorton]
Pete: This will be a good prompt for interviews
13:56:36 [SarahHorton]
Jennison: Would be good to interview people who are and aren't using WCAG
13:57:38 [SarahHorton]
Pete: Which guidelines are most important to you, people who aren't as familiar might have different ways to remember and reference guidelines
13:58:11 [SarahHorton]
Jemma: Which are important to you in your work? Might be good to add context
13:59:17 [SarahHorton]
Pete: When you're engaged in your work activities, will make this more specific
14:01:38 [SarahHorton]
Sukil: Should we be asking a question about which device the person is using to complete the survey?
