Accessibility Requirements for People with Low Vision, developed by the Low Vision Accessibility Task Force (LVTF), was published today by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG). This document describes what people with low vision need for electronic content, tools, and technologies to be accessible. It includes an overview of low vision and describes specific user needs. It does not set technical requirements. It provides the background for planned future work on guidance for making web content, tools, and technologies accessible to people with low vision. Comments are welcome by 14 April 2016. Read about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
