Subject: Call for Review: WCAG 2.0 Techniques Draft Updates
To: WAI Interest Group <w3c-wai-ig@w3.org>

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI announces a Call for Review of updates to two supporting
documents for Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0. *This is
not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document*.

The supporting documents (W3C Notes) are updated periodically to
reflect current practices and technologies. *The existing Techniques
and Understanding documents remain in place as W3C Notes* while the
separate draft updates are under review and the WCAG Working Group
addresses comments.

The following draft updates are available for review as Editors' Drafts:
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft
- Understanding WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft

*What is updated*: Draft updates include addition of Flash techniques,
and clarifications based on input from the public and translators. The
changes are highlighted in diff-marked versions at:
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20100708/complete-diff.html
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20100708/complete-diff.html

Please send any comments on these Editors' Drafts by *9 August 2010*.
Comments and contributions for additional WCAG 2.0 techniques can be
sent via web form or e-mail, per:
- Instructions for Commenting on WCAG 2.0 Documents

If you are interested in actively contributing to the development of
additional WCAG 2.0 techniques and support material through the WCAG
Working Group, please see:
