The DPub Accessibility group is embarking on a new task: looking over 
existing ATAG, WCAG, and UAAG guidelines to see if there are any ways in 
which techniques or examples should be modified or expanded upon to 
include examples unique to digital publishing. Additionally, we will be 
creating a document about how to address accessibility in digital 
publishing, which references all of those guidelines. We will be doing 
this work in conjunction with the appropriate people on the ATAG, WCAG, 
and UAAG teams.

We are looking for DPub members who are willing to commit approximately 1 
hour a week to this task, give or take. For those of you who have been 
part of the DPub accessibility work in the past, this is a fine time to 
step back if you don't think you can offer any kind of time commitment. 
For those of you who have not been working  on accessibility tasks and did 
not get weighted down with copious action items at TPAC, now is a great 
time to be an accessibility hero. Virtual pom-poms and cheerful links to 
kitten videos are available to anyone who is willing to  commit some time 
to this effort.

If you are interested, please contact me and Charles LaPierre 
(charlesl@benetech.org) by the end of this week, Friday 7th of November. 
Also, when you contact us, could you let us know what time zone you are 
in? Once we have a sense of the geographical location of our volunteers, 
we can schedule a kickoff meeting at an appropriate time.

Thanks so much,

Deborah Kaplan
