W3C asks for comments on First Public Working Draft of Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision

Last March 27, 2016 the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG) published the First Public Working Draft of the Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision. The document, elaborated by the Low Vision Accessibility Task (LVTF), describes the needs of people with low vision for using electronic content, tools and technologies.

The main purpose of this guide is to provide a background for making web content, tools and technologies more accessible for low vision users, without setting technical requirements. However, the text is currently in a draft version and the LVTF is open to receiving comments related to the clarity of the text, the main overview, expanding user needs and unanswered questions.

Comments should be sent via e-mail to public-low-vision-comments@w3.org by 14 April 2016.
