W3C Releases Drafts of Cognitive Accessibility Roadmap and Gap Analysis and WCAG 2.1
December 10, 2017
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) released two draft documents last week:
Cognitive Accessibility Roadmap and Gap Analysis
The Accessible Platform Architectures and Accessibility Guidelines Working Groups published a working draft of “Cognitive Accessibility Roadmap and Gap Analysis.”
Developed by the Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force, the document explores user needs for people with cognitive or learning disabilities and identifies where additional web content authoring guidance is needed to help authors meet these needs.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1
A final Working Draft of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 was published for wide review before a planned advance to Candidate Recommendation in January 2018.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible to people with disabilities, and more usable to users in general.
