Accessibility Working Group approved

Blogged by: Jon Ferraiolo on November 20, 2010 at 5:38 pm

The OpenAjax Alliance members and Steering Committee have formally approved the creation of a new Accessibility Working Group. The WG will be co-chaired by Richard Schwerdtfeger of IBM and Jon Gunderson of the University of Illinois.

The new Working Group will publish materials centered on ARIA compliance checking and best practices within web applications that provide rich user experiences in the browser using “Ajax techniques“. The Working Group’s charter provides details on the deliverables. The WG is already far along in completing its work because several companies have been collaborating for over a year within an OpenAjax Alliance “task force”. The committee’s home page provides links to the various work activities.
