To those interested in contributing to W3C work on low vision accessibility:

The objective of the Low Vision Accessibility Task Force (LVTF) is to identify issues and specify solutions to web accessibility issues specific to users with low vision. The Task Force contributes to WCAG requirements and supporting materials.

We invite those interested in low vision accessibility to participate and contribute to LVTF work.

The LVTF work includes:

  *   Update Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision https://www.w3.org/TR/low-vision-needs/
  *   Update documentation on gaps between user needs and existing requirements in WCAG, UAAG, ATAG
  *   Document sufficient techniques, advisory techniques, and failures for WCAG 2 related to low vision
  *   Develop supplemental guidance to address low vision beyond WCAG 2
  *   Contribute to WCAG 3 requirements and guidance related to low vision

To join the Low Vision Accessibility Task Force, individuals must become participants of the Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (AGWG).

Participants are expected to actively contribute to the work of Low Vision Accessibility Task Force (LVTF) , including:

  *   Minimum 4 hours per week of LVTF work (this time counts towards the individual's participation requirement in the AGWG);
  *   Complete LVTF surveys;
  *   Remain current on the LVTF mailing list and respond in a timely manner to postings;
  *   Participate in LVTF teleconferences, or record regrets in the Availability for Upcoming LVTF Teleconferences Survey.
