Advancing Accessibility Resources Community Group

Our goal is to engage and empower accessibility professionals to advance the W3C WAI mission through community driven initiatives. This work could include:
  • Creating and maintaining a repository of community-built resources that complement WAI
  • Being a group of active participants that are continually contributing to resources
  • Vetting and highlighting external resources that relate to and support this group's resources
  • Being available to W3C Working Groups and Task Forces to assist in writing specifications and resources
This group will not publish Specifications.

We’re just getting started!

Kris Anne and I are excited to have started this new adventure with the Advancing Accessibility Resources Community Group! We are just getting things set up and refined, so we don’t expect to have any formal meetings for at least a few weeks.

We have added our initial Work Statement to the GitHub repository wiki. Please feel free to have a read through that and add any feedback/comments/suggestions as issues in that repo. We are still fleshing out this group’s mandate and scope, and would love to hear ideas from the accessibility community!

Please join the group, or at least subscribe to the mailing list, to get all of the latest updates.

We look forward to kicking things off properly very soon!
