April 2014: Task Force Report -

The task force as been established and a table of content outlined for the first deliverable - the Gap Analysis.

The first 8 user groups have been decided and volunteers allocated to do user research and add the finding to our wiki. Some technologies for exploration have been identified and volunteers allocated to review them We also have an outline for the road map.

Work Planned For Next Reporting Period

Over the next 6 weeks we intend to have initial findings on the wiki for most of the user groups. We also intend to have at least 3 technology reviews on the wiki.

We are also now opening up space on the wiki for ideas of what could be done to improve accessibility for people with learning disabilities.

We are also hoping to recruit at least two assistive technologies for cognitive disabilities to the task force as this is essential for adoption

Comments

[22/4/2014] From Josh: I'm not sure what "We are also hoping to recruit at least two assistive technologies for cognitive disabilities to the task force as this is essential for adoption" means? Does it mean that the TF wish to procure AT that can be used by people with cognitive disabilities for testing?

June 2014 - Task Force Report

The task force has initial finding on the wiki for some of the user groups, including dyslexia and dyscalculia.

One technologies review is currently written up on the wiki, and two others have been performed and are pending being added to the wiki.

We also have a mechanism for the collecting techniques, and developing consistent terminology and references.

October 2014 - Task Force Report

Initial findings on the wiki for ALL of the user groups ready have been reviewed and approved by the Task Force.

The task force is close to a first working draft on user group research for all of the user groups. The main content is all approved, but introduction and other small pieces are still needed.


Work Planned For Next Reporting Period

Over the next 6 weeks we intend to have:

  1. Have a first Working draft on background research on usergroups sent to WCAG and PF for review.
  2. We also intend to have identified known techniques for improved accessibility for our user groups .
  3. We might have some special issue papers identified.
