The W3C WAI announces a Call for Review of updates to two supporting 
documents for Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0. *This is 
not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document*. The supporting 
documents (W3C Working Group Notes) are updated periodically to reflect 
current practices and technologies. The existing Techniques and 
Understanding documents remain in place as W3C Notes while the separate 
draft updates are under review and the WCAG Working Group addresses 
comments.

*Please see important information in the WCAG Techniques and 
Understanding WCAG Updates blog post* at:
	http://www.w3.org/QA/2013/07/wcag_techniques_updated_july2013.html

The following draft updates are available for review as Editors' Drafts:
- Techniques for WCAG 2.0 Editors' Draft
