Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI announces a Call for Review of updates to two supporting documents for Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0. *This is not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document*. The supporting documents (W3C Working Group Notes) are updated periodically to reflect current practices and technologies. The existing Techniques and Understanding documents remain in place as W3C Notes while the separate draft updates are under review and the WCAG Working Group addresses comments.

*Please see important information in the WCAG Techniques and Understanding WCAG Updates blog post* at:
	http://www.w3.org/QA/2013/07/wcag_techniques_updated_july2013.html

The following draft updates are available for review as Editors' Drafts:
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2013/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20130711/
- Understanding WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2013/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20130711/

The changes are highlighted in diff-marked versions at:
