Herewith a draft for announcements as requested. The following based on
our previous announcement available at:


<begin draft>
Dear WAI Interest Group Announce List Participants,

The Personalization Semantics Task Force and the Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group announce publication of a Candidate Recommendation (CR) draft of:

* Personalization Semantics Content Module 1.0 specification:

We are also announcing an updated working draft publication of:

* Personalization Semantics Explainer

What is Personalization: Personalization enables users to customize the way information is presented. It is especially useful for people with cognitive and learning disabilities. For a short introduction to personalization and the different documents, see the
     Personalization Overview

Status and wide review: APA believes the Personalization Semantics
Content Module 1.0 specification is ready to advance to the next step
toward becoming a W3C recommendation. This means that implementations of
this specification are welcome, as our comments on the CR draft.

Please note that this specification currently relies on the "data-"
attribute as provided for in HTML 5, Sec.


However, this specification cannot advance beyond this stage using that
attribute. APA has initiated the process for a permanent resolution that
would allow this specification to advance to recommendation status. Once
that resolution has been agreed an updated Candidate Recommendation
draft will be published containing the newly agreed syntactic approach.
Implementors are cautioned to expect this one time change in the coming

Comments: To comment, file an issue in the personalization semantics GitHub repository:
If this is not feasible, send email to public-personalization-tf@w3.org.
Please send comments by [date] 2020.

Thanking you in advance,

Janina & Becky, APA Co-Chairs
Lisa & Sharon, Personalization Task Force Facilitators
Roy & Michael, Staff Contacts
