Call for Review: Applying WCAG to Non-Web ICT
(31/07/2012) WAI invites comments on the First Public Working Draft of Applying WCAG 2.0 to Non-Web Information and Communications Technologies (WCAG2ICT).
This draft document provides guidance on how Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 can be applied to non-web information and communications technologies (ICT), specifically documents and software. It does not discuss whether or not WCAG 2.0 should be applied to non-Web ICT.
For this draft, WAI particularly seeks comments on:
* The overall approach of the document.
* The "Additional Guidance" in this draft.
* Additional key terms to be defined in this document.
* Is it necessary or helpful to provide guidance on applying the principles and/or guidelines? (This draft currently provides guidance only for success criteria.). Note that only the success criteria are used for determining conformance to WCAG 2.0.
Please send comments on this draft to the publicly-archived mailing list:
firstname.lastname@example.org *by 7 September 2012*.
