Call for Consensus (CfC): Publish Content Usable as W3C Note



This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible Platform
Architectures (APA) Working Group testing whether we have group
consensus to publish Content Usable as a W3C Note.  The document to
review is here:

As customary, editorial enhancements may proceed during this CfC, eg.
there are some known stray characters currently in the document.
However, any substantive concerns which emerge during this CfC  will
need to be resolved before APA could agree to advancing this document to
W3C Note status.


This document is the outcome of a multiyear project in the Cognitive and
Learning Disabilities (COGA) Task Force.  It has been written for people
who make Web content.  applications. It provides advice on how to make
content usable for people who live with learning and cognitive
disabilities. It describes:

*	Aims and objectives of usable content,
)*	Design patterns (ways) to make content usable,
*	Personas describing who the guidance is for.

Editorial work on the document may continue beyond the end of this CfC
and will continue to be welcome.

***Action to Take***

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
