The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group has a mission 
to ensure W3C specifications provide support for accessibility to people 
with disabilities. One of the ways it does this is by review of 
specifications as they are published, especially at the first public and 
wide review draft stages, and for some specifications as an ongoing 
process over their development. Each year, the group looks at a couple 
hundred publications, of which several dozen become more active reviews 
often leading to comments filed.

Specification review involves a lot of people to cover the volume and 
bring a suitable breadth of technical and accessibility expertise. It is 
interesting and useful work, allowing reviewers to have a key impact on 
the accessibility of the Web for years to come. A blog post describes 
this process in more detail:
