-------------- next part --------------
I. Participant Development
Invite approximately 40 individuals from industry,
developer communities, research and educational institutions, and
persons with disabilities. We need to ensure broad participation
across all sectors of these groups worldwide, and we need,
particularly, to engage participants who would otherwise not become
involved in this process.
1.) Who to invite (technically conversant participants) from:
2.) Write and issue personal, targeted invitations
3.) Develop a list of where we want to post our public invitation
4.) Write the public invitation
5.) Explain the statement we expect from each participant
6.) Create a conference web page
7.) Write and issue a public press release with U/H & Archimedes
II. Agenda Development
The purpose of our workshop is the development of an engineering
agenda that can result in standards to support accessibility.
The workshop agenda will include work on FSG's current accessibility
standardization efforts and on developing a Road Map, with timelines
and deliverables, which can point the way to a comprehensive solution
that is implementable incrementally. Specific topics which must be
addressed and will be discussed at this workshop include:
Part A: Current Standardization Activities
2.) AT Device Shared I/O
3.) Keyboard Accessibility
Part B: creating a Road Map for comprehensive accessibility on open platforms.
2.) Text To Speech
3.) Alternative Interface Access Protocol
4.) Text-only accessible booting
5.) Accessible Feature Configuration
The agenda will be published at the Accessibility Workgroup's web
