The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) sent out a call for review of its First Public Working Draft of Web Accessibility for Older Users: A Literature Review, one of the WAI-AGE project deliverables. It was published 14 March 2008, and WAI encourages review and comments, all to be submitted by 4 June 2008, if possible.
This draft document reviews and analyzes guidelines and articles covering the requirements of people with Web accessibility needs related to ageing. The purpose of the literature review is to inform education and outreach to better promote accessibility solutions for older Web users, and potentially develop profiles or extensions to WAI guidelines.
A mail from Shawn Henry on the WAI Interest Group list explains that
The Web Accessibility Initiative: Ageing Education and Harmonisation (WAI-AGE) Project is a European Commission-funded project that focuses on education and outreach regarding the requirements of people with Web accessibility needs related to ageing.
