Dear WAI Interest Group,

We hope that you will join W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) staff online for:
	W3C WAI Interactive Update: Guidelines, Emerging Technologies, and New Resources
	Thursday 23 July 2020

Registration is available from:
	https://knowbility.org/services/online-training/w3c-wai-interactive-update/

In this session, you can share your perspectives and learn about exciting new work through WAI, including:
* WCAG 2.2 and the next generation of accessibility guidelines (previously referred to as “Silver”)
* real-time communications (RTC), virtual or immersive environments (VR, XR), pronunciation, and personalization
* improving accessibility to people with cognitive and learning disabilities
* encouraging authoring tools (like CMSs) to be more accessible with a new accessibility report tool and authoring tools list in development
* supporting better accessibility evaluation

We’ll also go over free online resources that are ready now for you to use and customize, including resources for:
* evaluating accessibility
* teaching and advocating
* planning and managing accessibility
* developing, designing, and writing content
* understanding accessibility standards

There will be time throughout the session to ask questions and share your input on WAI work and resources. And you’ll learn how you can get involved with accessibility efforts through W3C WAI.

We're looking forward to it.

Best,
~Shawn
