The Independent User Interface (Indie UI) Working Group today published the First Public Working Draft of Requirements for IndieUI: Events 1.0 and IndieUI: User Context 1.0. The document introduces use cases related to the IndieUI specifications and the technical requirements for meeting the use cases. IndieUI: Events defines a way for different user interactions to be translated into simple events and communicated to web applications. With IndieUI, web application developers will have a uniform way to design applications that work for multiple devices and contexts. It is introduced in the IndieUI Overview. One focus of IndieUI is enabling better user interaction in the mobile environment. This Requirements document provides an opportunity for early review of user needs to be addressed by the IndieUI specifications. Learn more about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
