My name is Rehema Baguma, a PhD student at Makerere University. My research
focus is how to address both technical and human aspects of accessibility
during Web development.

Sometime back we carried out a survey on how developers use WCAG guidelines.
The results revealed that most developers find the structure of WCAG
guidelines (both versions) difficult to use to find required advice. We are
proposing an approach for structuring accessibility guidelines according to
contexts of use e.g. role (developer/Manager), type of disability e.t.c.

We will appreciate if you spare some time and participate in our testing of
the proposed design versus the WCAG design using the attached one and a half
page questionnaire.

Thank you for your time. We look forward to hearing from you soon,

Kind Regards, Rehema Baguma.
