Ideas for topics

All ideas welcome for discussion, please add yours.

  • Role-based accessibility - Breaking down accessibility requirements and considerations by roles. Pursuing this effort from a few years ago with a small group of people that could be potential invited experts to join EOWG. Show what we've been up to. Try to gather interest from the working group, so it gets picked up as a project within WAI. - Denis Boudreau
  • Howard's proposal
  • presentations — Approach to updating the old presentations. Probably needs EO-Plan first, not F2F discussion. (Shawn from charter)
  • Selecting Authoring ToolsSelecting and Using Authoring Tools for Web Accessibility needs significant updating and revision. Maybe would be good to have conceptual discussion at F2F *if* we have an editor ready to take it on and they can have a draft Requirements Analysis before the F2F. (Shawn from charter)
  • Better Web BrowsingBetter Web Browsing: Tips for Customizing Your Computer needs significant updating - but probably not need f2f discussion (Shawn from charter)
  • outreach — (Shawn, Brent from charter)
  • Easy ChecksEasy Checks Next Generation Not sure if there's anything to talk about yet? (Shawn from charter)
  • Training SuiteDeveloping Web Accessibility Presentations and Training content updates. Need to check with Vivienne if there are significant things that would be good at F2F, or fine for weekly meetings. (Shawn from charter)
  • Translations — ui, parameters (Shawn from charter)
  • open issues — go through open issues (Eric)
  • AccessLearn WAI site gaps — go through Action list with EO to determine priority and next steps (Brent)
  • (moonshot) Writing Style — Invite Ashley Bischoff ( to tell us a bit about good writing, maybe she would be willing to take a look at a tutorial page to show us what we're doing wrong :-D (Eric)
