Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) has established a Mobile Accessibility Task Force to develop more specific guidance on mobile accessibility related to WCAG and UAAG.[1] The Mobile Accessibility Task Force home page is:
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/mobile-a11y-tf/

Background: The main Mobile Accessibility page at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/mobile/> explains:
*how mobile accessibility is already covered in existing W3C/WAI accessibility guidelines*
*WAI's current work related to mobile accessibility* in different areas, including IndieUI and HTML5

The Mobile Accessibility Task Force expects to:
* develop mobile techniques for WCAG using HTML5, ARIA, CSS and JavaScript
* develop design guidance or mobile web accessibility best practices
* review existing resources, including those outside of W3C

The Task Force seeks to bring together individuals and organizations to contribute to this W3C/WAI work.
We *invite you to contribute to the Mobile Accessibility Task Force*.
* Active participation in the Task Force takes about 4 hours per week, including teleconferences.
* Participation is through either the WCAG Working Group or the UAAG Working Group.
* More about participation is at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/mobile-a11y-tf/#participation>

If you cannot commit that much time, you can still review draft documents. To get announcements of drafts for review, see <http://www.w3.org/WAI/about/announcements>.

[1] WCAG & UAAG:
* WCAG, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, is introduced at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag>.
* UAAG, the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines for browsers and other 'user agents', is introduced at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/uaag>.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.
