Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to participate in the online symposium on
       *Text Customization for Readability* on
       19 November 2012 at 15:00-17:00 UTC

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and other conditions and situations that impact reading. It focuses specifically on text customization requirements and functionality, that is, providing users the ability to change (or personalize) specific aspects of text display to improve readability for their particular needs. For details, see
       <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2012/text-customization/>

Registration is available from

Space is limited; we recommend that you register soon to reserve a space.

If you have any questions, contact Shadi Abou-Zahra: shadi@w3.org

RDWG Background:

The Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) helps:
- increase accessibility considerations in research on web technologies, including mainstream research,
- suggest research questions that may contribute to web accessibility research projects,
- inform development of web accessibility solutions,
- decrease the number of potential barriers in future web-related technologies.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research and development in that area. The online Symposia include a panel with the authors of accepted papers, and provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions. Symposia proceedings, transcript, and a report are available publicly online afterward.

For more information, see the RDWG FAQ: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/process>

We welcome your ideas on this topic and your ideas for future RDWG work. Please send comments to the publicly-archived mailing list: <public-wai-rd@w3.org>

This Symposium is supported by the EC-funded WAI-ACT Project (IST 287725) described at: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ACT/>
