RE: CFC: Supplementary document for WCAG 2.1


Also agree with David’s suggestion below. I’m not familiar with what can and cannot be done with Quickref codes, but would this allow views where a single “guideline” could appear in two views e.g. something may be beneficial for LV and COGA?

Best regards

And also in favour of a Quickref code repurposed to deliver views of this document (COGA, LVTF, MOBILE, etc...)

Call For Consensus — ends Thursday May 25rd at 12:00pm Boston time.

The Working Group has discussed the idea of providing additional guidance for accessibility beyond what is able to be included within WCAG 2.1. The idea is that success criteria proposals that cannot reach consensus or that there is insufficient time to review still have valuable information that might be able to be published for use. This idea was surveyed (<>) and discussed on the call (<>) and a resolution received consensus:

RESOLUTION: the working group has agreed to publisihing supplemental guidance in 1 document that is non-normative

If you have concerns about this proposed consensus position that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this decision, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.
