I can answer this now, hoping it will help. If you have specific concerns,
feel free to raise them now via email, on the call, or after the call as we
develop and share the slides.
We developed the agenda and topics based on what Mike and I discussed with
Access Board staff, who understand this audience best. We strove for
balance, to hit the high points of what TEITAC has done, for a non-technical
audience not universally familiar with either 255/508 nor ICT accessibility
Any suggestions for changes are welcome, but we can't guarantee that they
will be adopted. We hope to have 20 minutes of open Q&A from the Board in
which issues not raised in the presentation can be discussed.
