I'd like to propose a process for doing gap analysis for the A11yBOK idea.
I'm a big fan of the Delphi Method, so this will be Delphi-like (see
Step 1: Everyone interested in doing so, create a list of things you
think must be contained in a proper Body of Knowledge for
Accessibility. Just a list of specific topics or features, even if it
is just at a high level. If you keep the topics terse and clear,
there's no need for justification *just a list*.
Step 2: Send it to me directly at karlgroves at gmail.com. This is
important!!! In a Delphi method, anonymity of the submitter is
important for subsequent rounds. Also it reduces conversation &
arguing about the merits of different features.
Step 3: I will collate the responses and report back with a
spreadsheet showing the full list of topics/ features suggested and
the number of times each item appeared.
1. Refrain from thinking of this in a W3C/ WAI context. Don't focus
on what they do/ do not have. Focus on what you think a BOK should
have, irrespective of who supplied it
2. Avoid thinking in terms of politics or implementation or
presentation. Focus on information only. What information does a BOK
need to supply?
3. Send this to me by 10pm GMT Friday March 23
There are more than 25 people on this list. Please, everyone send
over your list and also get others involved in doing this as well.
The more the merrier.
