Hi,

FYI:
We will get some research about "Easy Language" in Germany.
Maybe this will help us, too?

Best regards,
Sandra

Barrie this is really great. Much appreciated.

I could really see this also serving as a framework for some best practices
guidelines - i.e., these are things you can do to meet these needs.

The tricky area for this I'm thinking are the more "sliding scale" issues,
especially in the cognitive area. It's easy to say, "yes this program uses
colors correctly to not cause issues with red-green color blindness" But a
lot harder to deal with say a cognitive issue such as reading ability, as
there's a pretty broad range of levels from severe Intellectual
Developmental Disability (IDD) to mild Learning Disability (LD).

PS -- I'm glad that the SIG list has resulted in your creating a
great (and very ambitious) project. It's always good to hear that the
collective knowledge of everyone on the list has been useful. :)

More to follow, but thoughts and suggestions would be
happily received. It's BETA.

p.s. - love, like or loathe the system - it sits on top of
so much knowledge that I've learnt from being on this list. So thank you!!
