In the Silver Content meeting of 24 September, we discussed whether the 
First Public Working Draft (FPWD) of Silver should include an example of 
new content that could not be included in WCAG 2.x. We have proposals 
from 2018 for new content from the COGA and Low Vision task forces that 
were used in evaluating the Information Architecture Prototype.  Note 
that these proposals are from 2018 and are not in the format we are now 
using for guideline development, but they can be adapted to the current 
format.  We will discuss these proposals at Friday's meeting and look 
for volunteers to work on developing the proposals.

I took an action to locate the 2018 proposals and have linked them on 
the main page of the Silver wiki in the Content section. I have copied 
the links and description below.

        New Content Proposals from Task Forces and Prototypes

  * Cognitive Accessibility Task Force (COGA)
      o Clear Words - Original
        | Silver Draft of Clear Words
        - actively under development with the intention of including it
        in the First Public Working Draft (FPWD).
      o Enable APIs - Original
        | Silver Draft of Enable APIs
        - started, but not far advanced. Last work was done in May 2019.
  * Low Vision Task Force (LVTF)
      o Point of Regard - Original
        | Silver Draft of Point of Regard - not started
      o Text Spacing - Original
        | Silver Draft of Text Spacing - not started
  * Information Architecture Prototype
      o Locate the User
        - this came from the Information Architecture prototype testing
        to test the concept of new guidance that is difficult to test
        using true/false statements (success criteria). It has sample
        tests and methods. The idea and some text comes from the Design
        Patterns for Mental Health website
        It was inspired by a blog by Dave Swallow - A web of anxiety:
        accessibility for people with anxiety and panic disorders
