The Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has published an updated 
Working Draft of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1:
https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/

This draft includes two new success criteria, one clarification to 
conformance criteria, and some new terms that have been formally 
accepted by the Working Group. It also includes several new or edited 
success criteria that were published in June. There are now 11 new 
Success Criteria in WCAG 2.1, which have come from the AGWG Task Forces 
focusing on mobile, cognitive, and low vision user requirements. Changes 
are listed at https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#changelog

The Working Group continues to review proposed Success Criteria that 
were previously submitted to the Working Group, and public comments on 
these. After this publication, we plan one more Working Draft before the 
Working Group stops adding new requirements to WCAG 2.1. After that, the 
Working Group will work to optimize the structure of the WCAG 2.1 
requirements and finalize WCAG 2.1. In addition, the Working Group is 
exploring ways to provide supplemental guidance in a separate 
non-normative publication to complement provisions being added directly 
as Success Criteria in WCAG 2.1.

**Please submit any comments related to potential new success criteria 
as soon as possible*, before 15 August 2017.*Comments about success 
criteria already added will still be processed throughout 2017.

or by email to:

The Working Group requests comments on this draft be filed by 25 August 
2017.
