ARIA and Assistive Technologies Community Group Proposed

The ARIA and Assistive Technologies Community Group has been proposed:

--------------------------------------------------

How WAI-ARIA is supported by assistive technologies, such as screen
readers,  is highly variable. This variation in WAI-ARIA rendering adds
unnecessary complexity to the development of high-quality web
experiences for users of assistive technologies and places significant
limitations on the types of web widgets that can be made widely
accessible.

This community group is dedicated to:

1.  helping assistive technology developers converge on a set of clear
norms for baseline support of WAI-ARIA.
2. Helping web developers understand the current state of support for
WAI-ARIA by assistive technologies.

WAI-ARIA is as important to assistive technology presentation as CSS is
to visual presentation. Join us to help make WAI-ARIA as reliable as
CSS.

--------------------------------------------------

You are invited to support the creation of this group:
  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed#aria-at

Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and
people can join to begin work. Once launched, the group will no longer
be listed as "proposed"; it will appear in the list of current groups:
  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/

In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account. To request one:

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires
the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on
site-comments@w3.org.

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
