Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

Two interviews with WAI staff were recently posted online:

1. "Webtalk: Shadi Abou-Zahra über die Web 
Accessibility Initiative" (in German). Shadi 
talks about his work at WAI, benefits of WCAG 
2.0, and the Web Accessibility Initiative: Ageing 
Education and Harmonisation (WAI-AGE) project.

2. "Radio New Zealand Interview, February 2008" 
(audio and text transcript). Shawn talks about 
the potential for the Web to enable people with 
disabilites to more actively participate in 
everyday life; the work of W3C/WAI; and including 
accessibility from the begining when developing technology.
