OAE Accessibility Review

  • The OAE review was supposed to take off a few weeks ago, but no one could make it to the meeting.
  • The official kickoff was last week to start testing.
  • The goal is to review the high priority functional areas. The functions may be evolving over time.
  • In OAE, there are no specific tools. Instead, the accessibility review will be done according to functional areas.
  • There is a little over a month to get the review done.

OAE Updates

  • Version 1.2 is about to be released.
  • A couple new features were added, and some changes have been made from 1.1.

Reasons For Not Yet Testing Version 1.2

  • Version 1.2 is still in flux. Until they have set down a release, testing won't be possible.
  • Tool testing results would vary from day to day.
  • The Server would have to be refreshed with each new update, and data would then need to be renewed.
  • Work done the previous day might get lost as a result.

Reasons for Conducting An Accessibility OAE Review

  • A review is important because there is no information available about the accessibility OAE.
  • Apparently one university got a report from an outside organization on whether or not OAE was accessible, but that is all the information Joe has at the moment.
  • A request was submitted at the end of January for an accessibility review of OAE. Brian Richwine received this request.
