Welcome! Silver is a Task Force and a project of the W3C Accessibility
Guidelines Working Group (AGWG). While the main working group is focusing on
the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 update, a small Task Force
is working on the preliminary research for a major update to WCAG. This new
update is yet un-named, but it is clear that it will NOT be called WCAG 3.0,
because we know that this major update will be applicable beyond just the Web.
The name Silver comes from the chemical symbol for silver, "Ag" for
Accessibility Guidelines.

Shawn Lauriat (Google) and Jeanne Spellman (The Paciello Group) presented on
Silver at the CSUN 2017 Assistive Technology Conference. Their Silver
presentation slide deck explaining the project is publicly available.

This W3C Community Group has been set up to support the people outside of the
AGWG who are helping with Silver and the Silver research.
