Updated: How to Meet WCAG 2.0: A customizable quick reference

   17 March 2016

   The Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) and the Web
   Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG) have
   published a new version of How to Meet WCAG 2.0: A customizable
   quick reference to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0
   requirements (success criteria) and techniques. It provides a
   customizable view of WCAG 2.0 resources, including: Web Content
   Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 web standard, Techniques for
   WCAG 2.0 implementation guidance, and Understanding WCAG 2.0
   supporting information. Information on these resources is provided
   in the WCAG Overview and The WCAG 2.0 Documents. This new version
   provides a significantly updated user interface and additional
   functionality to filter by Tags that are categorized under
   Developing, Interaction Design, Content Creation, and Visual
   Design. (The previous version is still available.) Learn more
   about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).


First Public Working Draft: Accessibility Requirements for People with
Low Vision

   17 March 2016

   "Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision,"
   developed by the Low Vision Accessibility Task Force (LVTF), was
   published today by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
   Working Group (WCAG WG). This document describes what people with
   low vision need for electronic content, tools, and technologies to
   be accessible. It includes an overview of low vision and describes
   specific user needs. It does not set technical requirements. It
   provides the background for planned future work on guidance for
   making web content, tools, and technologies accessible to people
   with low vision. Comments are welcome by 14 April 2016. Read about
   the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).


WCAG-EM Report Tool: Accessibility Evaluation Report Generator is

   17 March 2016

   Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has published an
   updated version of the WCAG-EM Report Tool: Website Accessibility
   Evaluation Report Generator. The tool helps you generate website
   accessibility evaluation reports according to Website
   Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM).
   WCAG-EM is an informative W3C Working Group Note. It describes an
   approach for evaluating how websites, including web applications
   and websites for mobile devices, conform to Web Content
   Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. We welcome feedback on this
   version of the WCAG-EM Report Tool and suggestions for
   improvements for the next version. Learn more about the Web
   Accessibility Initiative (WAI).


W3C Invites Implementations of WOFF File Format 2.0

   15 March 2016

   The WebFonts Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate
   Recommendation of "WOFF File Format 2.0." Based on experience
   with WOFF 1.0, which is widely deployed, this specification was
   developed to provide improved compression and thus lower use of
   network bandwidth, while still allowing fast decompression even on
   mobile devices. This is achieved by combining a content-aware
   preprocessing step and improved entropy coding, compared to the
   Flate compression used in WOFF 1.0.


   The Working Group has also published a Group Note of "WOFF 2.0
   Evaluation Report." Web Open Font Format (WOFF) 2.0 is a proposed
   update to the existing WOFF 1.0 with improved compression. This
   report lists requirements for successful deployment, evaluates how
   the requirement may be met, and examines the compression gains and
   tradeoffs vs. code complexity, encode and decode time. This
   document is non-normative.
