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 Working Group Notes) are updated periodically to reflect current practices and technologies. This is not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document.

*Please read important information about WCAG Techniques in the following blog post*:
