    Dear Advisory Committee Representatives,
    This is a Call for Review of a proposed charter for the Accessibility 
    Guidelines Working Group (AG WG):

    The mission of the Accessibility Guidelines Working Group is to develop 
    specifications to support the implementation of digital content and 
    applications which are accessible for people with disabilities, and to 
    develop and maintain implementation support materials. This proposed 
    charter extends the AG WG for an additional three years, necessary for 
    parallel and continuous development of WCAG 2.2 and Silver.
    A notification of development of this draft charter was sent on 24 July 

    That notice described plans to continue work on Web Content 
    Accessibility Guidelines with a 2.2 version, as well as plans to begin 
    Recommendation-track development of 3.0 Accessibility Guidelines, 
    currently called "Silver". Silver will use a different framework to 
    allow it to address more disability needs, address emerging technologies 
    on the web, and provide non-normative support for technologies that 
    impact accessibility. AG WG also includes work in multiple Task Forces, 
    currently including the Cognitive, Language and Learning Disabilities 
    Task Force; the Low Vision Accessibility Task Force; the Mobile 
    Accessibility Task Force; and the Accessibility Conformance Testing Task 
    Force. Each of these Task Forces has assigned Team Contact time, and 
    some include team support for supplemental resource development to 
    support uptake of the guidelines.
    Feedback during the advance review period resulted in clarifications to 
    the charter regarding normative content, web scope of technologies, and 
    nature of specific deliverables.
    A diff showing changes between the old and new charter is available:

    Please review the charter and indicate your support using this online form:

    The deadline for responses is 23:59, Boston time on October 8, 2019.
    Proposed Team Contact time is 0.70 FTE, of which 0.10 is Member funded.
    Proposed additional Team support is 1.15 FTE, of which 0.05 is Member 
    Non-member funds contributing to team contact and team support include:
         0.45 FTE WAI-Core
         0.5 FTE Easy Reading
         0.5 FTE WAI-Guide
         0.25 FTE WAI-Tools
