Hi a11y group and i18n/localization, 

For those of you not aware, a11y has decided to move the Accessibilty help information out of the online help tool and into an external wiki (Confluence), at least until such time as the direction of the Online Help tool is decided (there has been some discussion about possibly replacing with this - https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/HELP/Future+plans+for+The+Knowledge+Base+Tool  , but no decision) . 

By making this change, updates to Accessibility information for Sakai can be made more frequently and dynamically as needed. 

Here is the proposed text that would go into Sakai CLE online help, and point back to the wiki:  "The following URL is provided for people with disabilities who would like to experience the accessibility enhancements of Sakai.

So the question is, would it be okay to proceed with this change and figure out the localization process afterwards (aka translation) or do we need to figure this out before making the change? 

An easy solution could be that the Accessibility wiki page could contain any links to localized translations which are provided to the Accessibiity group, as they are created. So there is still one page for the community to reference to find information about Accessibility in any language (at least acting like a "portal").

FWIW, there appear to only be two translations of the current Accessiblity information in CLE: Brazilian Portuguese and Traditional Chinese.

What do you think?
