      1. If so, will it be a,,, or other  (would prefer that it not be a as we discussed due to that being connected to a person)
        Answer:  Deferred. Will decide as release date approaches.
      2. Note: We understand that there is a long URL for this as a short-term option, but would be good to have something that is a address, can easily be spoken, won’t easily become broken, and that can easily be sent in an email without it being split into two lines.

        Answer: Deferred. Will decide as release date approaches. 

      3)      Suite of tools

      1. What will be the name for suite of tools? (to be used on the DoIT Accessibility page, etc.) Is this “Accessibility Testing Tools"?

      2. Will there be a Subdomain URL that goes to the suite of tools (“Accessibility Testing Tools")?  If so, what will it be?
        Answer: Won'tl be subdomain URL for this. Will be linked to from several places.

    • Status of CIO Blog article for July (Sandi, Laura, Gary)
    • More...?
    • For the July marketing the DoIT service page will serve as the landing page, because those communications will be specifically about the tool.
    • For later more general communications, the DoIT accessibility page will be the landing page. It needs some work to serve as such.
