Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI announces a Call for Review of updates to two supporting documents for Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0. *This is not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document*.

The supporting documents (W3C Notes) are updated periodically to reflect current practices and technologies. *The existing Techniques and Understanding documents remain in place as W3C Notes* while the separate draft updates are under review and the WCAG Working Group addresses comments.

The following draft updates are available for review as Editors' Drafts:
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft
- Understanding WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft

*What is updated*: Draft updates include addition of Flash techniques, and clarifications based on input from the public and translators. The changes are highlighted in diff-marked versions at:
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20100708/complete-diff.html
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2010/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20100708/complete-diff.html

Please send any comments on these Editors' Drafts by *9 August 2010*. Comments and contributions for additional WCAG 2.0 techniques can be sent via web form or e-mail, per:
- Instructions for Commenting on WCAG 2.0 Documents http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/comments/

If you are interested in actively contributing to the development of additional WCAG 2.0 techniques and support material through the WCAG Working Group, please see:
