WCAG 2.1 and Digital Publishing

The WCAG WG is working on WCAG 2.1. There are a few items that are relevant to digital publishing that have been proposed as additions or revisions. DPUB members have been working with WCAG to to include this material in the WCAG 2.1 First Public Working Draft. Our next steps are to:

  • Propose an example of a publication in the section about set of web pages. Matt Garrish has proposed “Example: A publication is split across multiple Web pages, where each page contains one chapter or other significant section of the work. The publication is logically a single contiguous unit, and contains navigation features that enable access to the full set of pages.” This language is intentionally broad so that it can encompass any existing and future specs.
  • Discuss whether accessibility metadata in schema.org will be included as a best practice, AAA Success Criteria, or some combination.
  • Revise the existing Appendix on Metadata as appropriate
