Subject: Call for Review: WAI-ARIA Last Call and New Document for Browsers
Date: Tue, 24 Feb 2009 09:58:19 -0600

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The Protocols and Formats Working Group invites you to review the following documents published 24 February 2009:
* Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 - Last Call Working Draft
* WAI-ARIA User Agent Implementation Guide - First Public Working Draft
* WAI-ARIA Best Practices - updated Working Draft

WAI-ARIA defines a way to make Web content and Web applications more accessible to people with disabilities. It especially helps with dynamic content and advanced user interface controls developed with Ajax (also known as AJAX), HTML, JavaScript, and related technologies.

The WAI-ARIA User Agent Implementation Guide provides guidance on how browsers and other user agents should expose WAI-ARIA features to platform accessibility APIs.

WAI-ARIA Best Practices describes how Web content developers can develop accessible rich internet applications using WAI-ARIA.

For an introduction to WAI-ARIA and links to related documents, please see:
* WAI-ARIA Overview

*Last Call Status*:
The main WAI-ARIA technical specification is provided as a Last Call Working Draft for public review of the document now that it has all resolutions from previous comments incorporated. The Working Group hopes that it has resolved all substantive issues with this draft, and looks forward to progressing to the next stages in completing WAI-ARIA. The next stages are described in:
* How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process

Please send any comments
* by 24 March 2009 to

Note: Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.

Thank you in advance for your comments.
