Released: 23 June 2005 | Author: Andy Clarke on behalf of The Web Standards Project
The Web Standards Project (WaSP) has today announced the formation of the WaSP Accessibility Task Force.
Bringing together accessibility specialists from across the world, the Accessibility Task Force will work with accessibility organizations, technology vendors and others to help promote Web accessibility.
The Task Force members include:
The Accessibility Task Force will play a key role in assisting product developers and manufacturers to improve Web standards support within their products.
The Task Force will also work towards promoting a better understanding of Web accessibility by designers and developers, corporate organizations and government institutions.
Founded in 1998, The Web Standards Project (WaSP) fights for standards that reduce the cost and complexity of development while increasing the accessibility and long-term viability of any site published on the Web. We work with browser companies, authoring tool makers, and our peers to deliver
the true power of standards to this medium.
The Web Standards Project is a grassroots coalition fighting for standards which ensure simple, affordable access to web technologies for all.
