CSS Accessibility Task Force (CSS A11Y TF)
of the APA, ARIA, and CSS WGs
No announcements at the moment.
Meetings and Communication
The CSS A11Y TF conducts its work using a variety of synchronous and asynchronous tools. Most work is done via email and issues as shown below, supplemented by occasional teleconferences.
- Most work is conducted via the css-a11y issue tracker;
- Email lists, used largely for administrative matters;
- IRC discussion on the #css-a11y IRCchannel, used largely for minute-taking;
- Web-Based Surveys (WBS);
- Teleconferences when needed (also see meeting minutes);
- Face to face meetings when needed, primarily at the annual Technical Plenary;
- GitHub resources, currently in one repository but potentially later in others:
These tools are used by participants of the Task Force. For ways non-participants can contribute, see how to contribute to the Working Group and file comments.
Teleconference details will be announced when a time is selected.
The CSS A11Y TF uses the email@example.com mailing list (mailing list archives) for email discussion. Participants are automatically added to the mailing list when they become a participant of the Task Force. Non-subscribers may post, but you must join the task force to subscribe to the list.
When the Task Force develops publications, they will be listed here. See also the CSS A11Y GitHub repository.
