Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI announces a Call for Review of updates to two supporting 
documents for Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0. *This is 
not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document*. The supporting 
documents (W3C Working Group Notes) are updated periodically to reflect 
current practices and technologies. The existing Techniques and 
Understanding documents remain in place as W3C Notes while the separate 
draft updates are under review and the WCAG Working Group addresses 
comments.

The following draft updates are available for review as Editors' Drafts:
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2016/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20160105/
- Understanding WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2016/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20160105/

The changes are highlighted in diff-marked versions at:
- http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2016/WD-WCAG20-TECHS-20160105/complete-diff.html
- 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/2016/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20160105/complete-diff.html 


Please send any comments on these Editors' Drafts by *29 January 2016*. 
Because this is a public review of changes to the Working Group Notes, 
only comments on changes made since the last Notes will be processed 
during this review; other comments will be saved and treated as comments 
on the updated Notes once published. Comments and contributions for 
additional WCAG 2.0 techniques can be sent via web form or e-mail, per:
- Instructions for Commenting on WCAG 2.0 Documents 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/comments/

If you are interested in actively contributing to the development of 
additional WCAG 2.0 techniques and support material through the WCAG 
Working Group, please see: Participating in WAI 
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/participation> and contact Michael Cooper.

For an introduction to the WCAG documents, see:
- WCAG Overview http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag.php

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for 
your comments. Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; 
please avoid cross-postings where possible.

Regards,

Andrew Kirkpatrick, WCAG WG Co-Chair
Joshue O Connor, WCAG WG Co-Chair
