+1… with hope that we’ll consider why each potential 2.1 proposal isn’t making the cut.  For some, I think time to understand, revise, and discuss may be the only reason, and perhaps time would be better spent on a 2.2 rather than a supplement.  For others, it may be research into user effectiveness, and for those I’d hope we frame the supplement into a W3C request for research.

Resending with the “high priority” flag per our process…

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 (https://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/35422/WCAG21_supp/results<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2002%2F09%2Fwbs%2F35422%2FWCAG21_supp%2Fresults&data=02%7C01%7C%7C0e1bcac07c814137cfe008d4a1f37ca4%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636311514529786507&sdata=Z09nKmrz3%2BdDRAlSQIgS6EnTF3tnyKnkhx6IU63M3ds%3D&reserved=0>) and discussed on the call (https://www.w3.org/2017/05/23-ag-minutes.html#item01<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2017%2F05%2F23-ag-minutes.html%23item01&data=02%7C01%7C%7C0e1bcac07c814137cfe008d4a1f37ca4%7Cfa7b1b5a7b34438794aed2c178decee1%7C0%7C0%7C636311514529786507&sdata=fuNXCihUvTIK85l38EKARZUd1nbx6vv6mPMVhkv2TNg%3D&reserved=0>) 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.

Thanks,
