WCAG 2.0: The Next Draft

Monday, June 4, 2007 8:26 | Filed in Accessibility, Standards

As the more astute of you will have noticed, I have already commented on the latest draft of WCAG 2.0 having written a review of WCAG 2.0 for Accessites just over a week ago. Why not pop over there to read it if you haven’t already?

If you can’t be bothered to read the review in full, I can sum it up quite concisely:

  • This draft is a whole lot better than the previous draft
  • You still don’t need to have valid documents, but they’ve swayed me with their argument
  • It’s actually usable and is probably now the best standards document available

Not only that but the WAI have helpfully provided explanations as to how WCAG 2.0 differs from WCAG 1.0 as well as as an interesting rundown of how accessibility guidelines are developed through the W3C process.

So, what next? Well, apart from a touch more polish, maybe a few further steps towards dealing with cognitive disability, I’m happy with it — so as far as I’m concerned, the sooner this makes its way through to being a formal Recommendation, the better…

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
