Contacting organisations

Andrew: what about "... or may ignore your feedback"?

william: acceptable to let people know they might be ignored

Darren: agreed

Andrew: difference is that large organisations may have correspondence tracking systems, and you will hear back in some form

William: in different organisations / different cultures example - include large, small and government

suzette: with reference to possibility of organisation having a disability officer - needs emphasis - list own paragraph

Andrew: consider the example problems

William: all but No 4 start "I" - suggest rewording to be the same as others, I have difficulty...
... useful to add URL to reference where problem does not exist

William: no example for deaf

Suzette: first one is a browser problem - better to start with No2

Andrew: wants it in because it is a problem and people don't know how to solve or forget

Suzette: recently heard about PICNIC - problem in chair not in computer!

Andrew: about your computer system - how to say ignore if you don't know

William: tighten up - e.g. bullet list on assistive technology and if multiple browser

Andrew: Follow-up section
... Box with additional action added about combining actions such as involving an organisation with legal action

Darren: Further Action - is it part of follow up or separate section?

All: in favour raising heading level for further action

William: all too common problem of no response/no action
... e.g. http://www.eyeassociates.com/eyefine1.htm
