Accessibility Guidelines Working Group - Task Forces

Mobile Accessibility Task Force

The Mobile Accessibility Task Force produce techniques, understanding and guidance documents as well as updates to existing related W3C / WAI material that addresses the mobile space.

Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force

The Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force will develop draft proposed guidance and techniques to make web content, content authoring, and user agent implementation accessible and more useable by people with cognitive and learning disabilities.

Low Vision Accessibility Task Force

The Low Vision Accessibility Task Force will identify issues and specify solutions to web accessibility issues specific to users with low vision via WCAG 2.0 techniques, understanding and guidance documents, and as needed to produce extensions to WCAG 2.0.

Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) Task Force

The objective of the Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) Task Force is to evolve and maintain a repository of ACT Rules for WCAG 2, to promote a unified interpretation among different web accessibility test tools and methodologies. ACT Rules conform to the ACT Rules Format 1.0 to document different testing practices. The ACT TF reviews ACT Rules, and present them to AGWG when they meet stringent quality criteria. AGWG may publish such ACT Rules as non-normative W3C resources, as part of the supplemental guidance for WCAG 2.

Silver Task Force

The Silver Task Force will perform preliminary development of a new version of Accessibility Guidelines following a research-focused, user-centered design methodology to produce the most effective and flexible outcome. These guidelines will address the process of making content and functionality accessible to people with disabilities, including the roles of content authoring, user agent support, and authoring tool support. These guidelines will address current technological and cultural web accessibility requirements and provide a base for continued evolution of the guidelines.
