I think the idea of combining accessibility and heuristic reviews is a
good one. It occurred to me that one of the templates we use for Sakai
may be useful, in that it takes a non-technical look at web page
accessibility, and could be combined fairly easily with a heuristic
review. It includes a line for the results of a WAVE review, which in my
mind is the first step, highlighting potential problems, but as far as
accessibility reviewers WAVE 3.5 is pretty user-friendly.
That said, there will still (to my mind) be a need for a JAWS review,
which, low and behold, we also have a template for.
Here is the link: http://confluence.sakaiproject.org/confluence/x/8ow
It would be great if you could take a look and we could discuss their
usefullness via email prior to the next Breeze meeting. Colin and
Richard, I'm particularly looking forward to your thoughts because of
your expertise. The protocol employs the Firefox accessibility checker
and WAVE 3.5, but perhaps there is something that covers 2.0 from U
Toronto that would be preferable...
Any and all suggestions for streamlining this or simplifying for persons
not familiar with accessibility testing (should you think necessary)
will be greatly appreciated, of course!
