Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI announces a new video introducing web accessibility and W3C's accessibility standards at:

The four-minute video highlights why accessibility is the right thing to do, how it is essential for people with disabilities and useful for all.

The video is presented as part of the Internet Society (ISOC)'s work to realize their vision: “The Internet is for Everyone” and their Accessibility Toolkit: <https://www.internetsociety.org/accessibility-toolkit>

It is timed in recognition of the United Nation's annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December: <http://www.un.org/en/events/disabilitiesday/>
