Dear WAI Interest Group participants,

Here is a reminder of two online symposia related to reading on the web:

1. Text Customization for Readability
Submission deadline: *24 September 2012*

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and other conditions and situations that impact reading. It focuses specifically on text customization requirements and functionality, that is, providing users the ability to change (or personalize) various aspects of text formatting to improve readability for their particular needs. It promotes new research, ongoing research, and analysis of past research related to text customization for readability.
Symposium date: 19 November 2012

2. Easy-to-Read on the Web
Submission deadline: *12 October 2012*

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, content authors, designers, and developers, and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with cognitive disabilities or low language skills. It is intended to encourage the development of better guidance, support, and tools for developers, designers, and users, and to inform researchers, standards developers, and policy makers on how to better address easy-to-read on the Web.
Symposium date: 3 December 2012
