Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (AG WG) has published an 
updated Working Draft of Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) Rules 
Format 1.0:
     https://www.w3.org/TR/act-rules-format/

*Overview*
This updated working draft of Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) 
Rules Format 1.0 addresses all comments received on the previous draft, 
and is accompanied by sample ACT Rules that implement this rules format:
     https://w3c.github.io/wcag-act-rules/

*Background*
The Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) Rules Format 1.0 specifies a 
common format for accessibility test rules, and how to write test 
procedures for quality assurance. It facilitates harmonization of 
accessibility testing approaches, and helps organizations to better 
document and share their testing methods. It primarily addresses 
developers of automated and semi-automated evaluation tools, but also 
supports manual evaluation procedures. More background is available on 
the Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) blog post:
 
https://www.w3.org/blog/2017/04/wcag-accessibility-conformance-testing-act/

*Comments*
To comment, the Working Group requests input be filed as GitHub issues at:
     https://github.com/w3c/wcag-act/issues/

Please create new issues for your comments, putting each separate topic 
into a separate issue. If it is not feasible to file issues in this 
tool, you can also submit comments by email to:
     public-wcag-act-comments@w3.org

The Working Group requests comments on this draft be filed by 10 October 
2017. The Working Group plans to publish updated Working Drafts 
frequently over the coming months to incorporate input received and 
continued review of proposals.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for 
your comments.
