Call For Review: Relationship Between Mobile Web and Web Content Accessibility Updated

Dear WAI Interest Group participants,

The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group and the WAI Education and Outreach Working Group invite you to comment on the following updated draft technical report published 3 July 2008:
* Relationship between Mobile Web Best Practices (MWBP) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Working Draft

This technical report and the overlap between design goals and guidelines covering accessibility for people with disabilities, and design goals and best practices for mobile devices are introduced in:
* Web Content Accessibility and Mobile Web: Making a Web Site Accessible Both for People with Disabilities and for Mobile Devices

This draft technical report, which spans 6 Web pages, provides a framework for the community to discuss and contribute to this work. The "WCAG 2.0 and MWBP Together" page does not yet have planned content; the other pages have draft content. The document has been simplified and scoped down since the previous publication.

The Working Groups particularly seek feedback on:
- Is this document organized so that it is easy to understand? How can it be improved?
- Is the relationship between the WCAG and MWBP requirements presented clearly at the detail level?
- Does it provide sufficient guidance on making Web content that meets one (WCAG or MWBP) also meet the other?
- Would additional information would be useful at this level?

Please send any comments on these documents by 15 August 2008 to the publicly-archived mailing list:

For more information, see:
* Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group
* Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Education and Outreach Working Group
* How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process

Note: Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.

Thank you in advance for your comments,

Shawn Lawton Henry, WAI EOWG Chair
