Call for Implementations: WCAG 2.2 Candidate Recommendation

Dear WAI Interest Group,

WCAG 2.2 is now updated to a 'Candidate Recommendation':
 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2

We plan to publish the finalized WCAG 2.2 in December 2022.

Candidate Recommendation:
The main purpose of Candidate Recommendation is to ensure that WCAG 2.2 can be implemented. It is stable at this stage; however, it could change based on implementation experience. More about Candidate Recommendation and the process for completing WCAG 2.2 is in:
