>Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,
>The W3C WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has updated:
> Before and After Demonstration (BAD) at
> http://www.w3.org/WAI/demos/bad/
>BAD is useful for presentations, for learning
>about specific web accessibility barriers and
>their implications, and as an example of
>conformance evaluation reports. BAD shows an
>inaccessible website and a retrofitted version
>of the same website with the accessibility
>barriers fixed. BAD has in-line notes
>("annotations") for you to get more information,
>and reports that list the accessibility problems for each page.
>*We welcome your help telling other presenters,
>developers, teachers, trainers, and advocates
>about BAD*. Sample wording that you can use for
>your own blog posts, newsletter articles, etc.
>is available in a Promoting BAD wiki page, under
>“Draft blog posts, newsletter blurbs, etc.” at
>(If you write a blog, newsletter article, or
>such, please let us know by sending e-mail to <EMAIL REMOVED> )
>Comments: We have a 'wish list' for improving
>and expanding BAD in the future ­ such as adding
>WAI-ARIA, video, and scripting. We welcome your
>input. Please send any comments or questions on
>BAD to the publicly-archived list: <EMAIL REMOVED>
>Acknowledgments: BAD was developed and updated
