Call for Stakeholders for a major update of WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines)

The W3C WCAG Working Group’s Silver Task Force invites submissions of names of people, groups, or organizations (including yourself) for consideration as stakeholders for a future guidelines version. You can submit as many names as you want. Please use the following form to submit names before 9 December 2016:

Contact Silver TF publicly archived email list at [hidden email] if you have a problem accessing the form.

What is this all about?
WCAG 2.0 has been very successful and has provided better access to the web for people with disabilities than was available in the past. At eight years old, WCAG 2.0 is ready for a major update. We know that involving more people, robust feedback, and a thoughtful process we can improve access for people with disabilities further and provide a clear and usable standard. We want to hear from a broad, international set of stakeholders, we want to hear from you!

The Silver Task Force plans develop a Stakeholder Map. The Stakeholders will be able to provide input into the research for designing Silver. Some opportunities for input will be short (like a survey or participation in a group discussion), others may be longer (like an interview or a request to log their use of WCAG), and it will be up to the stakeholders to determine how much time they are able to invest in the feedback opportunities.

About the Silver Task Force
The objective of the Silver Task Force is to perform preliminary development of a new version of Accessibility Guidelines. Code-named "Silver", these guidelines will address the process of making content and functionality accessible to people with disabilities, including the roles of content authoring, user agent support, and authoring tool support. These guidelines will provide a base for continued evolution of accessibility standards.

For more information about the Silver Task Force see https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/task-forces/silver/

About the WCAG Working Group
The mission of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG) is to develop guidelines to make Web content accessible for people with disabilities and to develop and maintain implementation support materials for the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

About the Stakeholder Map
Stakeholders are the people, groups, or organizations who have an interest or a concern about Silver; those affected by the change from WCAG to Silver; or those who are interested observers of accessibility standards. The Stakeholder Map is a process to clarify and categorize the various stakeholders, their relationships, and their interests in order to build a diverse and quality resource of input into the Silver project. We will use the Stakeholder Map to identify people to interview, survey, comment on prototypes, and generally advise the Silver design project. We expect the Stakeholder Map to include a large number of stakeholders from around the world.

Hello,
Not reinventing the weal, making sure the wheel can go over all the terrain it needs too.
This is an update of the WCAG. The last guidelines were created 10 years ago and I am pretty sure new forms of web content have been developed in the last 10 years. This update is so WCAG remains applicable to current technologies.
Thanks,

In reply to this post by Brandon Keith Biggs
C:\source\nvda>scons source
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "C:\source\nvda\scons.py", line 10, in <module>
     import SCons.Script
ImportError: No module named SCons.Script

I asked about this before, and didn't get an answer.  This is the error
I get when trying to compile NVDA from source.  Does anyone have an idea
about how to solve this?
