Subject: Call for Review: ATAG *Last Call* Working Draft
Date: Thu, 08 Jul 2010 08:07:20 -0500
From: Shawn Henry <shawn@w3.org>

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI invites you to review and start using the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 2.0 Last Call Working Draft published 08 July 2010 at:
    http://www.w3.org/TR/ATAG20/

If you develop web authoring tools (content management systems, HTML editors, blog software, websites that let users add content, etc[1]), now is the time to take a good look at ATAG 2.0. We need you to use this Last Call Working Draft in developing your tools and let us know how it works for you. In the coming months, we'll be asking for tools that meet ATAG 2.0. Will your tool be an example?

People with disabilities and accessibility specialists are also encouraged to review the document now to ensure that it addresses accessibility needs.

What is Last Call?: Last Call Working Draft and the other development stages are described in:
    How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process

Recent updates: For a list of changes since the last draft, see the Status section: http://www.w3.org/TR/ATAG20/#status

Comments: Please submit comments on any issues that you think could present a barrier to future adoption and implementation of ATAG 2.0 to the publicly-archived list:
    public-atag2-comments@w3.org
    by *2 September 2010*

Background: ATAG defines how authoring tools should help Web developers produce Web content that is accessible and conforms to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. It also defines how to make authoring tools accessible so that people with disabilities can use the tools. ATAG is introduced in the ATAG Overview at:
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/atag.php
ATAG is part of a series of accessibility guidelines/standards developed by WAI, which are listed in WAI Guidelines and Techniques at:
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/guid-tech.html
ATAG is developed by the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (AUWG),
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/AU/

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your comments.

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.
