Call for Review and Participation: WAI-AGE Literature Review and Task Force

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The Web Accessibility Initiative: Ageing Education and Harmonisation (WAI-AGE) Project is a European Commission-funded project that focuses on education and outreach regarding the requirements of people with Web accessibility needs related to ageing. See:
    WAI-AGE Project page

As part of the WAI-AGE project, today the WAI Education and Outreach Working Group Working Group (EOWG) published a literature review as a First Public Working Draft:
    Web Accessibility for Older Users: A Literature Review
This draft document reviews and analyzes guidelines and articles covering the requirements of people with Web accessibility needs related to ageing. The purpose of the literature review is to inform education and outreach to better promote accessibility solutions for older Web users, and potentially develop profiles or extensions to WAI guidelines.

We welcome your comments on the literature review by 4 June 2008, if possible. The e-mail address for sending comments, which is publicly archived, is:
