Working on UAAG:
We welcome help developing UAAG though the next stages of the W3C Process (<http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process.php>). If you might be interested in actively participating in the UAAG Working Group, please read: Participating in WAI at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/participation>. If you are a developer who is considering implementing UAAG 2.0, please contact Jeanne Spellman <http://www.w3.org/People/jeanne/>

Background:
UAAG defines how browsers, media players, and other "user agents" should support accessibility for people with disabilities and work with assistive technologies. Implementing UAAG 2.0 provides additional information about the guidelines and success criteria, including intent, examples, and resources. For more information on UAAG and other standards from the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), see:
* UAAG Overview <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/uaag.php>
* WAI Guidelines and Techniques <http://www.w3.org/WAI/guid-tech.html>
* User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (UAWG) <http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/>
