Perhaps it will be consider jumping the gun, but
I'll put out the following set of resources, now,
while I have time. Perhaps others can bookmark
them, or capture them in a better place, for use when the time is right.
I hope my taking the time to collect these, now,
won't cause a problem with the Delphi process. But I may not have time later.
I view this message as a follow-on to the kinds
of resources people have already been posting to
Twitter. and that I highlighted earlier.
Numbering is to aid tracking, rather than to
suggest prioritization. Note that I'm
specifically NOT mentioning WAI resources since I
think they're pretty easy to find.
1. wikipediaWikiProject Accessibility - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
[JS: While this project may have a focus on the
accessibility of Wikipedia, generally, I think it
may be worth noting for consideration, as appropriate.]
2. ARIA - MDN:
3. Laura Carlson's weekly Web Design Update
(which is not only about accessibility):
3.1. Subscribe info:
4. Selected citations, summarized from the "How
We could Build a Body of Knowledge" blog post
(but may not be entirely comprehensive):
[I mention this blog post in case some people are
new to the list and may have missed this post. The comments are valuable.)
4.1. AccessiWeb 2.1 reference list - detailed list
4.2. Jim Tobias's citation re. "strengthening the community of practice:"
4.3. Victor Brito comment excerpt:
"... a French project called KBAccess
(<http://www.kbaccess.org>), which is a body of
knowledge showing good and (almost) bad examples
in accessibility, each test case illustrating the
result for a given test (based on Accessiweb
reference version 2.1), if this test is valid,
invalid, not applicable or needs more information (in case of doubt) and why. "
4.4. Sébastien Delorme comment excerpt:
"It is very close to a project that has been
started in June 2011. This project, called AcceDe
Web, is going to be launched very soon (<http://www.accede-web.com>).
It is a community project on Web Accessibility, coordinated by Atalan.
AcceDe Web is supported by important French
companies (Air Liquide, Atos, BNP Paribas,
Capgemini, EDF, Generali, SFR, SNCF, Société
Générale and SPIE) and by other stakeholders
(Agence Entreprises & Handicap, Anysurfer, APF,
CIGREF, ESSEC, Handirect, Hanploi, Sciences Po
and Télécom ParisTech). . . . The whole project
will be published in the form of a wiki in June 2012."
[JS: With translation from French expected.]
4.5. Jonathan Avila mentions this, related to the ATIA report:
5. I wonder if leaders in the community of
practice including for-profit companies such as
The Paciello Group, SSB Bart, Deque, and the
nonprofit, Knowbility (to be far too
U.S.-centric, so please forgive), have databases,
Wikis, or other similar collections of resources
that they would be willing to share, wholesale, with the project.
I know that WebAIM makes its information rather
publicly available, and I noticed that at least
some of that is what Karl's collected, but what
might these other companies have to offer?
6. The Society for Technical Communication Body of Knowledge:
7. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge via Wikipedia:
7.2. Proposed Fifth Edition, open for comment until March 20, 2012:
[JS: But you can't see it, as far as I can tell, unless you have a login.]
