IndieUI: Events - New Work for Mobile and More

The IndieUI Working Group today published a First Public Working Draft of IndieUI: Events 1.0 - Events for User Interface Independence. IndieUI defines a way for different user interactions to be translated into simple events and communicated to web applications. (For example, if a user wants to scroll down a page, they might use their finger on a touch screen, or click a scroll bar with a mouse, or use a scroll wheel, or say 'scroll down' with a voice command. With IndieUI, these are all sent to the web app as simply: scroll down.) IndieUI will make it easier for web applications to work in a wide range of contexts — different devices (such as mobile phones and tablets), different assistive technologies (AT), different user needs. With IndieUI, web application developers will have a uniform way to design applications that work for multiple devices and contexts. Comments on this Draft are encouraged by 22 February 2013.
