== Abstract ==

    This document, “Mobile Accessibility: How WCAG 2.0 and Other
    W3C/WAI Guidelines Apply to Mobile” describes how the Web
    Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 [WCAG20] and
    its principles, guidelines, and success criteria can be applied
    to mobile web content, mobile web apps, native apps, and hybrid
    apps using web components inside native apps. It provides
    informative guidance, but does not set requirements. It also
    highlights the relevance of the User Agent Accessibility
    Guidelines 2.0 [UAAG20] in the mobile context.

    This document is intended to become a Working Group Note and is
    part of a series of technical and educational documents
    published by the [20]W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

    Feedback on this draft is essential to the success of this
    guidance. The Mobile Accessibility Task Force asks in
    particular:
     1. Is this document helpful in understanding the applicability
        of WCAG 2.0 and UAAG 2.0 to the mobile environment?
     2. Is the format of this information helpful for designers,
        developers and testers of content that can be viewed with
        mobile devices and in mobile apps? Is it useful for
        policymakers?
     3. In Appendix A, is listing relevant existing WCAG 2.0
        techniques helpful for mobile content and mobile app
        developers?
     4. Are there additional accessibility needs in the mobile
        environment related to the WCAG principles that we should
        address?
     5. Have we sufficiently explained why keyboard interface and
        modality independent controls are needed in the mobile
        environment?
