We are launching this Discovering Silver Forum as part of the Silver Community
Group website. The Forum is a place to share perspectives about accessibility
guidelines and their role in creating inclusive digital environments. We will
regularly post topics and invite discussion as comments or
via the  public-silver@w3.org mailing list.

Our first discussion topic is, What can we learn from WCAG adaptations?

One of the primary goals for the Silver project is to use evidence and data to
inform decisions about the next-generation accessibility guidelines. The Silver
Design Plan begins at the beginning, with questions about what is needed, and
where there are opportunities to push forward using guidelines to support
accessibility in the digital environment. In the Discovery Phase, researchers
and stakeholders worldwide are working together to find answers to key research
questions. From supporting policy and design decisions, teaching and learning
about accessibility needs, conducting research and creating standards, and other
stakeholder roles and activities, a broad range of perspectives on how
accessibility guidelines are used will clarify what is needed to ensure
accessibility guidelines are an effective tool for advancing accessibility.

To support work in the Discovery Phase, the Silver Task Force will regularly
post research questions as prompts and open the floor for discussion. We will
include your comments and perspectives among the research data, which will form
the basis for Phase 2 activities of interpreting and synthesizing the data into
insights to guide decision-making, as we move from research to concepts.

We look forward to hearing from you!
