thanks for that, I really appreciate it.  It is very important to the 
success of this guidance to get this level of feedback from people like 
yourself and other members of this list.

I am extending the consultation deadline for another couple of weeks.  I 
would really appreciate it if people on this list could have, at the very 
least, have a quick look at this guidance and give me any feedback you 
can.  The guidance is still on the NDA website at 

In particular I would ask that any developers/designers look at the web 
accessibility guidance.  Also the auditing guidance for managers may be of 
interest to people who carry out audits.  You may in the future be asked 
to audit a website in accordance with this guidance so please let me know 
what you think.  The Smart Card guidance is not for the faint hearted but 
gives an interesting insight into this technology and possible future 
applications.  The ICT Procurement Toolkit has been delayed  but as soon 
as it is ready I will publish it to the NDA website for comments. 

Once again I urge members of the group to have a look and to send me or 
post to the list any comments.  I am not the W3C over here and could use 
all the input and feedback any of you can give!

Re: [Irl-dean] Redevelopment of the NDA IT Accessibility Guidelines

Hi all

I have read through the "Web Accessibility Auditing - Guidance for
Managers" and have attached our opinions.

I would just like to say firstly that there has obviously been a huge
effort put into writing these and it really shows, well done to the
writers and it a great to see something like this being provided.

Secondly my opinions are just that, my opinions and I look forward to
reading anybody else's thoughts on the guidelines or of my opinions.

Vivienne has one or two thoughts at the end.

With Regards

Brendan Spillane
