Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

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
   http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/comments/

WCAG 2.0 is part of a series of accessibility guidelines/standards developed by WAI, which are listed in:
