The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 were made a W3C
recommendation on 11 December 2008. Since that time, individuals and
organizations have adapted WCAG in different ways. We believe we can gain
insights into what's needed for the next-generation accessibility guidelines by
studying those adaptations—the thinking behind them, the changes made, the
effectiveness of the adaptations.

We are particularly interested in:

 	What lead up to the decision to create a WCAG adaptation?
 	In the adaptation, what is dropped? What is added?
 	Are there changes to the structure of the guidelines?
 	What content is changed, or reworded, and why?

We welcome input and insights on any aspect of WCAG adaptations that might help
us gain deeper understanding into what is needed moving forward. Please share
your thoughts in the comments section or
via the public-silver@w3.org mailing list.

We are aware there is ongoing research and exploration of WCAG adaptions. If
you know of research activities or have been involved in activities yourself,
please email JaEun Jemma Ku at jku@illinois.edu.
