Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

W3C WAI today published updates to two supporting documents for Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0:
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/
- Understanding WCAG 2.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/

These supporting documents (called W3C Notes) are updated periodically to reflect current practices and technologies. This is not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document.

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/TR/2010/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20101014/complete-diff
- http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/NOTE-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20101014/complete-diff

*Please read more information on the updates in the following blog post*:
- New and Improved WCAG 2.0 Techniques
