Hi all,

Finally JIS X 8341-3 was updated on August 20th, last Friday.

Thank you very much for everything you've considered and helped for
the international harmonization.

JIS X 8341-3:2010 has "Chapter 7. Requirements for Web Content". We
have the same 4 principles, 12 guidelines, and 3 levels of Success
Criteria as the WCAG 2. You can understand all of the requirements by
reading WCAG 2 though we don't have English version of JIS X
8341-3:2010 itself.

JIS has additional requirements in the other chapters such as
requirements for the life-cycle process and the test methods for
conformity assessment.

At the same time, we've just established a new organization "WAIC (Web
Accessibility Infrastructure Committee in Japan)".

WAIC (Web Accessibility Infrastructure Committee in Japan)
# Japanese only at this moment. Sorry about that...

Chairman: Takayuki Watanabe
Vice-Chairman: Masahiro Umegaki, Makoto Ueki

Also I became a chair of "Implementation Working Group" of WAIC. The
working group already published the following documents and
information in Japanese:
1) Japanese Trasnlation of WCAG 2 documents
- WCAG 2.0
- Understanding WCAG 2.0
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0

2) Accessibility Support Information for Japanese Web Content
- Test Suites
- Test Results

We developed about 180 test files and tested them with 4 browsers and
6 screen readers. I believe that this is the first case all over the
world. Do you have accessibility support information[1] in your

WAIC also provides various documents/information on its website.

Please contact me if you have any question about JIS X 8341-3:2010
though WAIC doesn't have any documents in English.
