Hey W3C Credentials CG, VCWG, and APAWG (bcc'd),

The Verifiable Credentials ecosystem is experiencing increasing adoption in a
variety of markets such as education, supply chain, retail, banking and
finance, workforce training, and corporate and government identification
cards. Each of these markets have issued credentials for hundreds of years and
have (justifiably) pre-conceived notions and preferences around what their
credentials should look like.

Similarly, it is important to understand that visually representing a
Verifiable Credential in certain ways could accidentally exclude those with
accessibility needs. We need to consider people with visual needs such as
larger font sizes, or the need to use colors that are easily discernable
(e.g., red-green color blindness). We also need to design for those that
cannot see, how do they navigate digital wallets and use Verifiable Credentials?

This draft Rebooting the Web of Trust 11 paper explores ways in which the
Verifiable Credentials data model could be extended to support visual, audio,
and physical renderings for Verifiable Credentials.

So, three things:

1. This is a reminder that RWoT11 Early Bird papers are
   due in two days (July 19th):

2. We desperately need help from the Accessibility
   community if we have any chance of getting this even
   remotely right.

3. Is anyone interested in collaborating on this paper, or
   providing other ways you've approached rendering
   Verifiable Credentials?

Thoughts?
