#a11yTO is bringing in a very special guest for June's Meetup: Jeanne Spellman!

Jeanne is a Facilitator of the Silver Task Force, which will succeed WCAG 2. Silver proposes to bring many improvements, for example: plain language, grades for conformance, support new technology (IOT, home assistants, etc.), evolutionary content, revolutionary structure, and making resources easier to find.

The next major revision to W3C Accessibility Guidelines to succeed WCAG 2 is in process. Last year, #a11yTO Camp gave valuable input into the research. See the results of the research and the prototypes for the new guidelines. Give your input on what you want to see in the new accessibility guidelines.

Jeanne Spellman joined the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) from 2008 to 2015 as the team contact for the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines Working Group, User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working Group and the Mobile Accessibility Task Force. Jeanne joined the Paciello Group in 2016 and became a member of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group. She is currently co-facilitator of the Silver Task Force and co-chair of the W3C Silver Community Group.

Note: #a11yTO will have live captioning at this event.
