Excellent website Mirna. It provides several guidelines and techniques that are crucial in managing and evaluating Accessibility. It also specifically address strategies to make the internet available to people with disabilites. I also found EARL - Evaluation And Report Language, which is a format to combine, exchange and analyze results from different web accessibility evaluation tools. The first EARL 1.0 version was published lately, in Sept, 2006. I think being aware of such evaluation tool will come very handy when comparing result to choose the one that the teacher will be utilizing in his or her classroom. The website provides a detaild look on WCAG 2.0 version which is a working draft for overviewing the Web Content Accessibility Guidlines.It also discusses the differences between WCAG version 1.0 and version 2.0. Good job Mirna, I will be visiting this website frequently to get more familiar with the mentioned tools to impliment in my prototype, tnx. John Kaninya
