WCAG 2.2 final web standard expected in 2023
WCAG 2.2 is now a W3C ‘Proposed Recommendation’. Proposed Recommendation means that W3C accepted it and W3C Members vote on publishing the document as a ‘W3C Recommendation’ web standard. The voting ends on 19 August. WCAG 2.2 might be ready to publish soon after that, or additional W3C Member input could require more work.
