Dear all,

I have been asked to create an Accessibility Metadata taxonamy and
Evaluation tool.

I am doing this work for a number of people:

- Learning and teaching Scotland
- Royal National College for the Blind
- Specialist Collegues - techie group
- X4L (Lauder College and Surf Consortia)
- TechDis (Technology for Disability Information Service)
- University of Sussex, Institute of Education

+ a number of disability specialists from the UK.

Possibly to used by the JISC respositories.

I have made a start and am making significant process with the work.

I will be including the W3C guideline and usability heuristics,
specialist accessibility requirements such as for those with specific
learning difficulties etc etc.

The basis will be an semi-automated evaluation tool that asks a number
of question in a logical order about a site and then calculates the
level of accessibility conformance though a number of 'specialist
themes' and produces the metadata that give a broken down evalution and
an overal rating.

I am interested is using my work to benefit Dublin Core, as the result
of my work produces machine-readable code (and human) and therefore is
useful for all type of metadata schemas.

I would very much like to hear from anyone who could contribute to the
work or who feels they might benefit from it.

Please contact me if you have any specialist accessibility knowledge
that you feel should be included.

I am very interested in doing a bit of joined-up-thinking and involving
as many people as possible before the project progresses too far.

I hope to complete the main bulk of the work in under 6 weeks!

Hope this is not too much of a shocker to you all! Sorry if this email
is a little crazy but I am up late working on it all now.
