Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to 
comment on the First Public Working Draft of the Research Report on Web 
Accessibility Metrics, a W3C Working Group Note, available at:

Accessibility metrics can extend the existing WCAG 2.0 conformance model 
to provide scores for the accessibility level of websites in more depth 
and detail. This Report provides considerations for validity, 
reliability, sensitivity, adequacy, and complexity as the main qualities 
of measuring web accessibility. The Report is a consolidated view of the 
outcomes of the Website Accessibility Metrics Online Symposium; 
information about the Symposium is at: 

For this Draft, RDWG is looking for feedback on:

  * Related resources that may be useful to the discussion within the 

Please send comments on this draft document to the publicly archived

       *by 5 October 2012*

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 

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 for future RDWG work. Please send comments to the 
publicly-archived mailing list: <public-wai-rd@w3.org>

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