It has been pretty quiet. Typically the blogosphere only gets in a frenzy when they have something to complain about.
There has also been a bit of positive feedback. Jack Pickard wrote the following…
It’s usable, it’s a vast improvement on the previous draft, and it’s an improvement on WCAG 1.0 as well.
Ok, it’s not perfect, not by a long chalk — it’s significantly lacking in relation to cognitive disability for example, and I’d like to see this improved before the final release — but it’s still pretty damn good nonetheless.
I agree with Jack. I think the latest version of WCAG 2.0 is a big step forward.
In an era of Web 2.0, having a set of Web accessibility guidelines that will be relevant and current with the times is CRUCIAL. Its our responsibility as the Web community to grab a tasty beverage, sit back with WCAG 2.0, and give it a read.
What are your thoughts? Do you think its an improvement? How could it be better?
