Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

One aspect of mobile accessibility is how web browsers on mobile devices support the accessibility needs of people with disabilities. Accessibility of web browsers is covered in User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG).

A new page shows examples of how web browsers that follow UAAG 2.0 benefit people with disabilities using the Web on mobile devices:

W3C WAI's broader work related to mobile accessibility is introduced in:

Background:
User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 2.0 defines how browsers, media players, and other "user agents" should support accessibility for people with disabilities and work with assistive technologies. For more information, see:
