Subject: 48-Hour Call for Consensus (CfC): Two COGA FPWDs


This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group to publish two First Public Working Draft (FPWD) documents from the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force (COGA) as scoped in the COGA Work Statement available at:

Because COGA is a joint Task Force of both the AG and APA Working Groups, a parallel CfC is being independently conducted by the AG-WG.
Members of both Working Groups should, therefore, participate in both calls.

* Documents to be Published as FPWD

 1.) COGA Issue Papers:

 2.) COGA Gap Analysis & Road Map:

* Background

This CfC is the result of the Call for Review issued by both AG and APA on 20 March last. It is being promolgated at this time because no substantive issues were raised as a result of that review announcement.
The APA review request is archived at:

Editorial issues communicated in response to this Call for Review will be addressed in a later editorial pass.


This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of support via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though messages of support are certainly welcome.

If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time, Tuesday 18 April.
