Many thanks to Cory for getting the Web Accessibility Task Force off the ground! This is a great step forward for the accessibility of our site, but itâ€™s just the beginning. We need to sustain the momentum and begin to plan our activities so the committee produces positive outcomes. I hope to lay the groundwork for that planning today by establishing the goal of the committee and discussing the guidelines our website should follow.
I want the goal and scope of this committee to be fairly limited. While we need to focus on accessibility, it shouldnâ€™t be an all-consuming time-beast. Therefore, the goal I envision for the committee is to:
Determine guidelines for accessibility and create a set of sustainable processes that help our website meet those guidelines.
