WCAG Samurai Errata for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 released

The WCAG Samurai Errata for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 [link no longer available] were published this week by the WCAG Samurai group. They don’t contain anything I’d consider Earth-shattering, but there are some very solid guidelines that bring the 1999 WCAG 1.0 specs a little more in-line with our current state of the browser (no revelations on how to make ajax more accessible, though!).

Check out the summary on the introduction page.

I found their information about the Brewer Palette [link no longer available] particularly interesting; Cynthia Brewer “conducted research into creating maps that people with colour deficiency (colourblindness) can read and understand.”

Roger Johansson has a nice explanation of why the Samurai group formed and published this Errata documentation.
