Recently the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) published their working draft of the new Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), which will go into effect in 2022 as WCAG 3.0. These guidelines are extremely important as they are the basis for state and federal laws on accessibility, as well as UI policies.

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, February 23, from 2-3 p.m. central time Jeanne Spellman, co-chair of the WCAG 3.0 project, will be speaking to the UI System.

WCAG 3.0 will be a change from the previous guidelines to account for various emergent technologies. Jeanne will give a 40-minute talk on these changes and will leave about 20 minutes for questions and answers. If you have questions for the speaker please send them no later than 5 p.m. Monday, February 22, 2021, to Vance Martin.

This presentation will have live captioning. It will be recorded and shared after the event.
