Process review post-WCAG 2.1

The Working Group has discussed a process to review the working group process that we used for WCAG 2.1. We want to make sure that we are collecting people’s thoughts, comments, complaints, and suggestions in order to have a deliberate and open review and to develop proposals for how to best proceed. We have received some suggestions already, including some received from the Director during the CR transition, and we will be incorporating that into the discussion.

The first step is to solicit feedback over a period of time (July 30-August 24).

Feedback can be provided confidentially, but even when it is provided confidentially, the general outcome of private conversations will need to be shared with chairs in order to discuss solutions, but efforts will be made to preserve anonymity. To be solutions-focused, problem descriptions should be accompanied by solutions proposals which consider the effect of proposals on other participants and issues.

In this initial step, we are suggesting any of the following for providing feedback:

  *   A Web-Based Survey at

  *   Email to<>,  which is private to chairs but not anonymous
  *   Private contact with any of Andrew, Alastair, or Michael
  *   Private contact with Judy or Philippe
  *   Private contact with ombudspeople listed at

Once the feedback is collected, the Chairs will develop a proposal and share it with the group, with the intent to finalize at TPAC.

The entire process is detailed in Alastair’s email:
