Requirements for WCAG 2.0 Extensions



This document describes the requirements that the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG) has set for the development of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 extensions. Extensions are optional standards modules that build on the existing requirements for WCAG 2.0, and extensions are designed to work in harmony with the WCAG 2.0 standard.

Status of the Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

This is a First Public Working Draft of Requirements for WCAG 2.0 Extensions by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group. It sets requirements for WCAG 2.0 extensions, optional modules that add accessibility guidance to the base of WCAG 2.0. The Working Group seeks public review of these requirements to ensure that extensions will strike an appropriate balance between meeting the needs of users with disabilities, working within existing WCAG 2.0 conformance policies, and implementability.

Feedback on any aspect of the document is accepted. For this publication, the WCAG Working Group particularly seeks feedback on the following questions:Do WCAG 2.0 extensions benefit the web accessibility space at this time? Is the proposed relationship of extensions to WCAG 2.0 clear? Will a conformance model that includes extensions be easy to manage? Do potential conflicts between extensions cause concern or increase flexibility?

Comments on this draft are requested by 5 February 2016. The Working Group requests that any comments be made using the options documented in Instructions for Commenting on WCAG 2.0 Documents. If this is not possible, comments can also be sent to public-comments-wcag20@w3.org. The archives for the public comments list are publicly available.
