The Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (ATAG 2.0) has reached Last Call Working Draft status. It will be under review until 18 January 2005.
What is ATAG 2.0?
Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (ATAG 2.0) is part of a series of accessibility guidelines published by the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). The other guidelines in this series include the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG).
ATAG 2.0 provides guidelines for designing authoring tools that lower barriers to Web accessibility for people with disabilities. An authoring tool that conforms to these guidelines will promote accessibility by providing an accessible authoring interface to authors with disabilities, as well as enabling, supporting, and promoting the production of accessible Web content by all authors.
