Interview with Judy Brewer on WCAG 2.0

What’s the heck’s going on with WCAG 2.0? Last I heard turned out to be an April Fool’s joke!

Judy is the Director of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). WCAG 2.0 is apparently in the second stage of four. Although moving very slowly, it seems many of the large concerns of the development community are being address (such as the complex language of the first draft).
