Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

WAI invites you to review the First Public Working Draft of Cognitive Accessibility User Research at:

This planned W3C Working Group Note describes the challenges of using web technologies for people with learning disabilities or cognitive disabilities. This document provides a basis for subsequent work to identify gaps in current technologies, suggest strategies to improve accessibility for these user groups, and develop guidance and techniques for web authors.

Draft for Review:
This First Public Working Draft is comprehensive, but preliminary. We particularly invite:
* Review for accuracy, completeness, and understandability
* Editorial input on structure, spelling, and grammar
* Suggestions to address other user needs in the area of cognitive accessibility and learning disabilities

Comments are welcome via e-mail or GitHub *by 13 February 2015*.
* Publicly-archived e-mail list: public-coga-comments@w3.org
* GitHub repository: https://github.com/w3c/coga
In GitHub, *please submit each comment as a separate issue or pull request*, so that we can process them separately. We encourage you to submit editorial suggestions as GitHub pull requests. Information about using GitHub to submit comments is available at: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/comments/#how_github>

Task Force:
This document is developed by the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force. The objective of the Task Force is to improve web accessibility for people with cognitive and learning disabilities.
