Dear All,

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Working Group invites 
you to review the second WCAG 2.0 Last Call Working Draft published 
on 11 December 2007. WCAG 2.0 explains how to make Web sites, 
applications, and other content accessible to people with 
disabilities. Please submit any comments on the following document by 
1 February 2008:
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-WCAG20-20071211/

This second WCAG 2.0 Last Call Working Draft is provided for public 
review of the document now that it has all resolutions from previous 
comments incorporated. The WCAG Working Group hopes that it has 
resolved all substantive issues with this draft, and looks forward to 
progressing to the next stages in completing WCAG 2.0. The next 
stages are described in:
      How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process
      http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process

The different WCAG 2.0 documents that the WCAG Working Group updated 
are introduced in:
      Overview of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Documents
      http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag20.php

A key tool for reviewing and working with WCAG 2.0 documents is:
      WCAG 2.0 Quick Reference
      http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/

For a summary of issues, revisions, and rationales on WCAG 2.0 
Working Drafts -- such as coverage of cognitive disabilities and 
testability -- see:
      Issues and Changes to WCAG 2.0
      http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2007/12/change-summary

Note that the navigation between the documents is changed in these 
drafts. Now each topic in "Understanding WCAG 2.0" and "Techniques 
for WCAG 2.0" is in a separate small Web page.

When you review the updated documents, if there are any significant 
additional issues that you feel could present a barrier to adoption 
and implementation of WCAG 2.0, please submit comments by:
      Friday 1 February 2008
Please use the comment form or the email address provided in:
      Instructions for Commenting on WCAG 2.0 Documents

also welcome.

developed by WAI, which are listed in:
