Draft 3 of Task List Grouping

(based on blossom's suggestions)

General Accessibility

  1. I am trying to find the definition of the term Web accessibility.
  2. I need info to help convince self, boss, org, or other that Web accessibility is important and that we should be doing it.
  3. I want to find out about Web access policies around the world.
  4. My boss told me to make our Web site accessible and I need to know where to start.
  5. I want a simple checklist of what I (content developer) need to do for
    Web accessibility.
  6. I am doing a presentation on accessibility and want to order Quick Tips
    to hand out.
  7. I am doing training on general accessibility information and trying to
    find materials for my presentation.
  8. I want to find a list of all the guidelines WAI has published.

Specific Questions and Searches

  1. I have been asked how much time and money it would take to make your Web
    site accessible.
  2. I am trying to find a specific document. ["How People with Disabilities
    Use the Web", "Policies Relating to Web Accessibility", etc.] .
  3. I want statistics on disability to help make a business case for Web
    accessibility. [deliberately not on site or in resource in the foreseeable
    future]
  4. I've searched for XYZ in a search engine [that dumped me in the middle of
    a resource]
  5. I am trying to find the list of Web accessibility evaluation tools.
  6. I have a specific question on Web accessibility that I want to ask WAI
    (e.g., interpretation of a guideline).

Techniques

  1. I heard XYZ [text resizing] is important for accessibility and want to
    find out why.
  2. I heard that Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) helps with accessibility; I
    want to know why CSS is good for accessibility and get an intro on CSS.
  3. Someone gave me a report generated by a Web evaluation tool, and I need
    to look up details about some of the things it said needed human evaluation.
  4. Someone gave me a report generated by a Web evaluation tool, and I don't
    understand how to fix some of the things it identified as errors.
  5. I am looking for a document that explains the techniques to implement
    Check point #X.
  6. I am doing a new thing [data tables, forms, etc.] and I want to make it
    accessible.

WAI

  1. I want to know more about WAI in general. How long has it been around?
    How is it funded? Who is on the staff?
  2. I heard W3C WAI was open to outside participation and I want to help out.
  3. I am a member of a WAI WG and I am trying to find out when the next
    meeting is. When is that in your time working zone?
