> *Overview*: Cognitive and learning disabilities are among the least

> represent the greatest opportunities for businesses when you consider the
> growing aging market worldwide. The Cognitive and Learning Disabilities
> Accessibility Task Force’s aim is to improve web accessibility for people
> with cognitive and learning disabilities. Its work includes:
>
>    - Creating a roadmap exploring how to make web content more accessible
>    and usable by different people and groups of people with cognitive and
>    learning disabilities;
>    - The review and development of techniques and identifying how they
>    can be improved;
>    - The development of engineering approaches and authoring strategies;
>    and
>    - Identifying W3C efforts needed to fill gaps from content, browser
>    support and authoring practices, as well as education and outreach.
>
> The goal is to help authors make their content usable by as many people as
> possible, such as people with learning disabilities, memory impairments (as
> with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s) and language disabilities.
