Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

W3C WAI invites you to comment on updated Working Drafts of:
 *   User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 2.0
      http://www.w3.org/TR/UAAG20/
 *   Implementing UAAG 2.0 Working Draft
      http://www.w3.org/TR/Implementing-UAAG20/

Changes in this updated UAAG 2.0 Working Draft include:
 * Customize text-display and focus-highlight - added and refined
success criteria so users can customize the display of text and the
highlight of focus location, which is especially important to meet the
needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and other conditions that
impact reading.
 * Input methods: speech, touch & gesture - added and refined success
criteria to support broad methods of input including speech, touch and
gesture.
 * Mobile accessibility - refined success criteria for applicability
to mobile and added examples to Implementing UAAG 2.0.

We are particularly looking for feedback on these changes and the
specific questions listed in the Status section at:
     http://www.w3.org/TR/UAAG20/#status

Implementing UAAG 2.0 Working Draft provides additional information
about the guidelines and success criteria, including intent, examples,
and resources.

WAI encourages people with disabilities and developers of browsers,
assistive technologies, plug-ins, extensions, and accessibility APIs
(application programming interfaces) to provide feedback on these
drafts. Please send comments to the publicly-archived list:
     public-uaag2-comments@w3.org
     *by 9 November 2012*

We also welcome additional help developing UAAG. If you might be
interested in actively participating in the UAAG Working Group, please
read: Participating in WAI at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/participation>
and contact Jeanne Spellman, see <http://www.w3.org/People/jeanne/>

Background:
UAAG defines how browsers, media players, and other "user agents"
should support accessibility for people with disabilities and work
with assistive technologies. UAAG is part of a series of accessibility
standards developed by WAI, including Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines (WCAG) and Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG).
UAAG 2.0 is currently informative only. For more information on UAAG
and WAI standards, see:
 * UAAG Overview <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/uaag.php>
 * WAI Guidelines and Techniques <http://www.w3.org/WAI/guid-tech.html>
 * User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (UAWG)
