Hi Mark,

Yes, I would also love to help any way I can.  Conducting a usability test at MSU later this summer would definitely work.  I will also start looking into accessibility of the staff interface.


Also, ASpace folks, please keep us posted about when the new version 1.5.0 is released today!  We are very anxious to get started.

There are also plans to conduct an accessibility audit of the new public interface as it’s developed.  We are taking accessibility issues seriously during the development process.  And more news about the entire PUI development process will be coming out before the end of the month.  I don’t think that there will be anything extra to add about the accessibility testing at that time, but we are planning to conduct those tests later in the fall (and I’m also doing some limited testing already with a few browser plugins, although that’s certainly not enough, of course!).

Thanks for bringing the issue back up on this thread, as it’s a very important issue.  Once the new public interface is further along (perhaps at the end of August or in September), would you be available and interested to conduct another usability test at MSU?  If so, I’d be happy to work with you to get access to a development site with test data.


p.s. it’s an important issue for the staff interface, as well!  Do you know if any tests have been done on that end?
