recommendations from 2010, to address, decide and monitor key issues related to
accessibility;
• Map existing ISO standards related to accessibility;
• Map ongoing standardization work in ISO, IEC and ITU relating to accessibility;
• Take into account other relevant international initiatives;
• Develop recommendations on tools to assist the TC community in developing
standards that take accessibility into consideration;

Strategic advisory group on accessibility;

accessibility.

ANSI is seeking two (2) U.S. experts to serve on the SAG as well as additional U.S expert to
