Dear WAI Interest Group,

WAI is pleased to announce publication of the Working Group Note:
	Making Content Usable for People with Cognitive and Learning Disabilities

This document helps you make web content, including applications, more accessible to more people. It provides guidance on:
* people with cognitive and learning disabilities
* aims and objectives for usable content
* design patterns (ways) to make content usable
* including users in research, design and testing activities
* personas (examples) and user needs

This document is an informative Working Group Note. It provides "supplemental guidance" beyond the requirements of WCAG 2. It is not required for conformance to WCAG.

WAI is currently working on integrating the Objectives and Patterns from Content Usable in a new section of the WAI website. That will be easier for some people to use.

We welcome comments for the next version of this document. To comment, please open a new issue in the COGA GitHub repository:
Please create separate GitHub issues for each topic, rather than commenting on multiple topics in a single issue.
If it’s not feasible for you to use GitHub, send comments in e-mail to:
