The W3C's personalization<https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/task-forces/personalization/>

Semantics Task Force of the Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working

Group is requesting a second wide review of our Personalization Semantics

module 1 (Adaptable Content) and the accompanying Explainer document. We

request your comments by Wednesday 10 March.

We aim to make web content adaptable for users who function more

effectively when content is presented to them in alternative modalities -

including people with cognitive & learning disabilities.

The Explainer is available here:


The Personalization Semantics Content Module 1.0 specification (Updated Draft)

is available here:


We especially request continued feedback from:

*    Those involved in WCAG 2.2 development, because we believe our

    normative specification provides conformance techniques to proposed

Success Criteria for WCAG 2.2, such as Essential Controls.

*    Those involved with ACC symbols accessibility and inclusion so we can

    continue to refine and optimize our  specifications to better

accommodate their scenarios.

We would expressly draw your attention to Sec. 3.1 of our specification as it

is particularly critical. If you have time only for a partial review, please

review Sec. 3.1 available directly at this web link:


Our current drafts incorporate feedback from earlier drafts in our activity.

For that reason alone we need to request your second look at our

specification--because much has changed.

We are also publishing for review and comment a First Working Draft (FPWD) of

a requirements document available here:


Please note that the Personalization Semantics Content Module is

intended to become a W3C recommendation eventually, while the other two

documents, the Explainer and the Requirements document will become W3C


We appreciate your time reviewing our specification and accompanying documents

afresh. Responses to this wide review call will determine whether we are

ready to advance the Module One specification to W3C Candidate Recommendation

(CR) status. It will also help us determine whether we are ready for certain

required internal W3C quality reviews.
