We this is old content for the gap analysis. I am keeping it so we do not miss or lose anything.

Section 1: Abstract and Introduction

Section 2: Background research (modularized in part)

Review of use cases external to standards

  1. State of the art in classification of cognitive function (stable to reference modular document)
  2. User group research module (May include larger group with sub groups such as Aphasia and language disorders)
    Proposed initial list for phase 1 includes but is not limited to:
    1. dyslexia,
    2. Brain injury subset of aphasia,
    3. non-vocal,
    4. Aging and Dementia,
    5. Down Syndrome
    6. ADD/ADHD
    7. autism
    8. dyscalculia.

Other are welcome. Template

Phase 2: More groups such as: Effects of PTSD on cognitive function)

Research (modularized)

  1. Executive function
  2. Localized brain functions: Memory functions, Short term, visual , math
  3. Reading / special ED. Meta studies
  4. Cognition
  5. Brain injury
  6. Taking research persona and creating “technology persona” (tags system to link between use cases and brain function)

Review of current standards and technologies(modularized)


  1. W3C: WCAG
  2. W3C: Non WCAG
  3. Non W3C
    1. Products
      1. How they are used for Cog A11y and
    2. Potentials and possibilities

Business case and dynamics

  1. Positives
    1. Cognitive load –dispatches
    2. Aging society
    3. Veterans with brain injury
  2. Negative
    1. Detracting from other peoples experience
    2. Legitimate variance nurodiversity
    3. Legislation based guidelines are burdensome and restrict author freedoms (hence metadata markup clues)
    4. Cross cultural and language learners

Section 3: Potential for inclusion (Brainstorming)

Ideas of how inclusion could be improved

Section 4: Gap Analysis

  1. Summary of where we are
  2. Potential of where we could be
  3. Identification of gaps

Section 5: Suggestions

    1. A series of suggestions for roadmaps without the finality of the roadmap
    2. Suggestions for products
      1. With benefits and user stories
