Dear WAI Interest Group List Subscribers,

The Accessible Platform Architectures Working Group 
<https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/> and the Accessibility Guidelines Working 
Group <https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/> have published a First Public Working 
Draft as well as an updated working draft, in total 2 documents from 
Coga Task Force as follows:

1. First Public Working Draft (FPWD):

Making Content Usable for People with Cognitive and Learning Disabilities

https://www.w3.org/TR/coga-usable

2. Updated Working Draft:

Cognitive Accessibility Roadmap and Gap Analysis

https://www.w3.org/TR/coga-gap-analysis/

The Making Content Usable for People with Cognitive and Learning 
Disabilities <https://www.w3.org/TR/coga-usable> document is for people 
who make Web content (Web pages) and Web applications. It gives advice 
on how to make websites and applications that are friendly for people 
with cognitive impairments by providing guidance for your designs, and 
design process. It was previously an appendix to Cognitive Accessibility 
Roadmap and Gap Analysis, the Coga Task Force has now decided to publish 
it as a separate document.

The Cognitive Accessibility Roadmap and Gap Analysis 
<https://www.w3.org/TR/coga-gap-analysis/> explores user needs for 
people with cognitive or learning disabilities and identifies where 
additional web content authoring guidance is needed to help authors meet 
these needs. This information is important to new guidance being added 
to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. This updated document 
separated the Making Content Usable for People with Cognitive and 
Learning Disabilities document which originally as an appendix to this 
document, and published it.
