<Jan> diary

david: why the developer choose wcag to use?

rather than other resources

do they want to use or have to use wcag?

how long developer use the standard

whether they can find what they are looking for from wcag

any missing wcag info developers are looking for?

what aspect of WCAG also help them?

layout, design, organization?

what aspect of WCAG hinder them?

shawn: research questions sound great
... I wonder how developers are confident in using WCAG

sloandr: in other words, wcag can give confidence or rather confusion when they use wcag

or after using wcag

shawn: how developers feel comfortable about the result

jan: end of diary, there can be open ended questions to hear about overall experience of participants
... I have another researcher - david in scottland - who can do some diary studies
