Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

"IndieUI" - Independent User Interface - helps web applications work better with different devices (such as mobile phones and tablets), different assistive technologies (AT), and different user needs.

*Requirements for IndieUI: Events 1.0 and IndieUI: User Context 1.0* introduces use cases related to the IndieUI specifications and the technical requirements for meeting the use cases. The First Public Working Draft is available for review at:

One focus of IndieUI is enabling better user interaction in the mobile environment. This Requirements document provides an opportunity for early review of user needs to be addressed by the two IndieUI specifications.

Please send any comments on this draft to the publicly-archived e-mail list:
