For Review: RTC Accessibility User Requirements (RAUR) Working Draft – Real-Time Communications (RTC) Accessibility

Dear WAI Interest Group,

WAI’s Research Questions Task Force (RQTF) and Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group invite you to comment on the First Public Working Draft of a W3C Working Group Note:
 RTC Accessibility User Requirements (RAUR)

RAUR outlines user needs, requirements, and scenarios for real-time communication (RTC) to be accessible to people with disabilities. Accessible telecommunication technology is increasingly important for people who are working remotely and relying on RTC for daily needs. The purpose of this document is to inform the development of specifications and underlying architecture at W3C and beyond. Some of the requirements apply at the system or platform level, and some are authoring requirements.

For more information, see:
