Working together for standards The Web Standards Project

Here’s a starter list of some resources to help transition to WCAG 2 from the world of WCAG 1, now the new standard goes to proposed recommendation status.

This is just a starter list; please add other resources that you recommend in the comments. It would be great to have some for clients as well as hard-core techies.

Colour Contrast rules are a bit different. Check out this Contrast Analyser which tests according to WCAG 2.0.

You may want to check out WCAG 2.0, where to start? which I wrote a while ago when at RNIB which should still be relevant.

WAI are also in the process of developing resources on how to transition from WCAG 1.0 to 2.0, presentation material, benefits and so on so keep an eye on that space too.

It will be very interesting to see how quickly these will be adopted once they have become a formal recommendation. Given how long it has taken to get to this point I suspect that there will be resistance to jump in too quickly.

I’d love Talklets to be listed as a resource.

For those of you who I haven’t bored previously, its a web based Assistive Technology. The idea behind which, is essentially, offeing a greater ubiquity of access to enabled services.

i.e. you could think of it as:

Talklets is to JAWS/NVDA as Google Docs is to OpenOffice/MS Word

I’m writing a white paper on it, which will evolve some yet:

Any feedback please let me know.
