Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

November 2013 — W3C has issued a request for reviewers for the last call working draft regarding Implementing User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 2.0. The draft provides guidance for designing accessible user agents, which include “web browsers and other types of software that retrieve and render web content.”  The updated version of the draft now includes mobile accessibility examples to demonstrate how “web browsers that follow UAAG benefit people with disabilities.” Some examples include individuals who may need to utilize alternative content for images to prevent excessive scrolling or need to set closed captioning as the default for all videos. W3C is now seeking final comments on the draft, which are due by December 16, 2013 to public-uaag2-comments@w3.org.
