We're especially interested to hear your thoughts about any or all of the following questions:

  1. Should we harmonize IITAA standards with the new Section 508 standards, WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1, something else?
  2. How would you envision harmonized standards being written? Simply refer to Section 508, copy the language of 508, another way?
  3. Do we need techniques or something similar that explain how to implement the standards in a more understandable way?
  4. Do you have ideas on what techniques should look like? IITAA Implementation Guidelines, WCAG 2.0 Techniques, code examples, etc.?
  5. What are your thoughts how we can improve compliance through outreach, education, monitoring and/or enforcement?
