  6. Getting it Right, From the Beginning - Documenting processes and best practices during Phase I (all)
    • References: Web Accessibility Workflow - Drafts, Web Accessibility Workflow - AssumptionsAccessible Development and Publishing Phase I Project.
    • Objective: Discuss issues during the meeting. Between meetings keep working on the workflows, guided by the discussion.
    • Background information:
      (From OCT 01)
      • Discussed the list of cases. Are there any missing? Duplicates? Idea is to cover case that occur on campus. Don't have to cover every possible case.
      • Documenting the different cases is what Phase I is about.
      • If the documented process is new or is an improvement to an existing process, it needs to be tested in actual use.
      • Deliverable for Phase I is a group of documented and tested processes intended to help units improve their own process.
    • Discussion: 
    • Action (from Nov):
      • Please complete scenarios by the Thursday December 17th meeting
      • Need to develop ideas for presenting the recommended workflows in ways that make it easy to match scenarios and consume the information

    2. Action (from Nov):

    1. Accessibility content & new it.wisc.edu site (Todd & Phyllis)
