The WCAG and UAAG Working Groups have set up a joint task force on
mobile accessibility (see announcement below).

Worth noting, and probably worth coordinating with them on how our work
intersect and how we can collaborate in this field.

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) has established a Mobile 
Accessibility Task Force to develop more specific guidance on mobile 
accessibility related to WCAG and UAAG.[1] The Mobile Accessibility
Force home page is:

Background: The main Mobile Accessibility page at 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/mobile/> explains:
*how mobile accessibility is already covered in existing W3C/WAI 
accessibility guidelines*
*WAI's current work related to mobile accessibility* in different
including IndieUI and HTML5

The Mobile Accessibility Task Force expects to:
* develop mobile techniques for WCAG using HTML5, ARIA, CSS and
* develop design guidance or mobile web accessibility best practices
* review existing resources, including those outside of W3C

The Task Force seeks to bring together individuals and organizations to 
contribute to this W3C/WAI work.
We *invite you to contribute to the Mobile Accessibility Task Force*.
* Active participation in the Task Force takes about 4 hours per week, 
including teleconferences.
* Participation is through either the WCAG Working Group or the UAAG 
Working Group.
* More about participation is at 

If you cannot commit that much time, you can still review draft 
documents. To get announcements of drafts for review, see 

[1] WCAG & UAAG:
* WCAG, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, is introduced at 
* UAAG, the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines for browsers and other 
'user agents', is introduced at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/uaag>.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid 
cross-postings where possible.
