* Today's WAI IG e-mail is below and archived at: <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-ig/2012JulSep/0351.html>
* Today's tweet: <https://twitter.com/w3c_wai/status/245154087677595648>

We also talked about individuals promoting Peter's case study on the WAI-Engage wiki and asking for more. Related to that:

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

New and updated information related to mobile accessibility is now available online.

A new WAI page summarizes existing and developing resources related to mobile accessibility  that is, making websites and applications more accessible to people with disabilities when they are using mobile phones and a broad range of other devices:
* Mobile Accessibility

Updated WAI pages are particularly useful for the business case:
* Web Content Accessibility and Mobile Web: Making a Website Accessible Both for People with Disabilities and for Mobile Devices
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/mobile/overlap.html
* Shared Web Experiences: Barriers Common to Mobile Device Users and People with Disabilities
	http://www.w3.org/WAI/mobile/experiences.html
* Developing a Web Accessibility Business Case for Your Organization
