Re: IAAP Certification Update

Correction: The first bullet point in my previous email had an extra word
("who") in it. It should have read:
*"With respect to your complaint that I only consider developers to be
accessibility professionals..."*
And I will say that I'm trying to offer honest responses that are intended
to clarify where possible. I'm trying to improve the communication and
dialog about what we're doing in the IAAP. If any of my responses come
across as an attempt to insist that I have all the answers, then I
apologize, because I would never claim to have all the answers. I do know
what we've done in the certification committee though, because I'm
intimately involved with it. I also know that we're working on a difficult
task, and there are differences of opinion within the accessibility
community. Those are the waters that I have to navigate.

In the end, my mission is to further the cause of accessibility, and
certification can play a role in doing that.
