Additional in Charter

If projects are defined and resources are available, EOWG may also:

  • Develop publishing-related information in coordination with Publishing@W3C — This will most likely be adding information to existing EOWG Resources — for example, adding publishing examples to the sub-pages of How People with Disabilities Use the Web, although it could be new resources.
  • Revise existing material or develop new material around the needs of users with cognitive disabilities, and accessibility solutions.
  • Support user interface development, and education and outreach around "Silver" with the AG WG.
  • Develop more role-based guidance — Work in the WAI Engage Community Group related to role-based guidance may develop to the point it is mature enough for EOWG review and publishing on the main WAI website.


EOWG work priorities are evaluated regularly by EOWG and WAI staff. Work priorities are periodically revised based on current education and outreach needs, and the progress of deliverables in other WAI Working Groups with which EOWG has dependencies. Therefore, the priority of deliverables listed above are subject to change based on changed circumstances, and timelines below may be adjusted.

Ideas on future work

Sent to WAI Coordination Call:

  • Proactive on [accessibility aspects of] emerging issues, such as Vibration API, Push/Notifications APIs, Gamepad API, graphics accessibility
  • Internationalizing the accessibility work at W3C (beyond translations), including increased attention on the "crossover" issue of sign language users, since that community includes many who see their issue as one of language rather than disability
  • Standardization of gestures across OS on touchscreen devices (POS, EFTPOS, kiosks etc)
