The ARIA and Assistive Technologies Community Group has been launched:
  http://www.w3.org/community/aria-at/

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

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.
