Working together for standards The Web Standards Project


The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG) invites you to comment on an updated draft of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0), published on 17 May 2007. WCAG 2.0 addresses accessibility of Web content for people with disabilities.

The updated WCAG 2.0 Public Working Draft incorporates changes in response to comments received on the 27 April 2006 WCAG 2.0 Last Call Working Draft. Because there were a number of substantive changes, WCAG 2.0 has returned to Public Working Draft status. We expect to advance WCAG 2.0 to a second Last Call Working Draft after this Public Working Draft.

W3C/WAI encourages you to review this document and submit comments on any issues which you feel could present a barrier to adoption and implementation of WCAG 2.0. The Working Group seeks feedback on the following points for this draft:

  • Are the guidelines and success criteria clear? If not, can you suggest clearer wording?
  • Are there any success criteria that you feel are not implementable or testable? If so, how could they be improved?
  • Are there any success criteria that you feel would not improve accessibility as written, or that might hinder it? If so, how could they be improved?

Comments on this Working Draft are due by 29 June 2007. The Working Group requests that comments be made using the online or downloadable comment form available at http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/comments/

If this is not possible, comments can also be sent to public-comments-wcag20@w3.org. The archives for this list are publicly available. (Please note that if you submitted comments during the 2006 Last Call Working Draft review period, you will be receiving an email with a response to your individual comments.)
