As I mentioned in yesterday's APA teleconference:

   https://www.w3.org/2017/03/22-apa-minutes.html#item09

There is a proposal for new work on WebVR at W3C. This follows the WebVR 
workshop last year:

   https://www.w3.org/2016/06/vr-workshop/report.html

and the work of a WebVR Community Group:

   https://www.w3.org/community/webvr/

which has prepared several resources in their GitHub repository, 
including a WebVR explainer:

   https://github.com/w3c/webvr/blob/master/explainer.md

and WebVR proposed specification:

   https://w3c.github.io/webvr/spec/latest/

As you can see in the workshop report, there are known accessibility 
implications for WebVR, and a need for us to engage effectively on the 
work as it develops. This message is to alert the APA WG to this work 
and to request initial thoughts. I hope to arrange a joint meeting 
between the APA WG and participants from the WebVR CG in the near future 
to ramp up our knowledge and identify steps we should take.
