More useful documents
We are working on documents for research, planning technology for more inclusion, and content with practical advice on what to do You can find more work at our Key Documents page
Background Research Documents
This is background level research about the issues and challenges. It is useful for reaserchers, policy makers and people wanting more information:
- Research doc contains: Research by disability (latest draft: https://w3c.github.io/coga/user-research/)
- Issue papers (docs) on topics such as security, safety and how they are affected by cognitive disabilities. (Works in progress are also at https://github.com/w3c/coga/tree/master/issue-papers and https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4919553/)
We have also used the research from Research sources
This is for W3C groups and standard makers looking to understand where the issues lay and how technology could help.
See road map and gap analysis, (doc). It contains:
- Summary of issues
- Summary of techniques
- Roadmap - Tables of user needs and how tech and standards could help
- We may add challenges from the research module above.
