Call For Consensus — ends Thursday February 23th at 1:30pm Boston time.


The Working Group discussed the latest editor’s draft of WCAG 2.1 ( and basedon a survey ( and a Working Group call ( where the majority of comments were

resolved and no blocking issues remained.


On the call people believed that we had reached a consensus position that the Working Group should publish the Editor's Draft as the First Publish Working Draft (FPWD). This will allow the group to meet its charter deadline. The Working Group included several SC that do not have Working Group consensus, but the Working Group did have consensus that publishing was valuable in order to get additional feedback from the public, and notes were included in the draft to point out aspects that do not have consensus at this time.


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.
