Given that we now have confirmation that we will have at least two implementations of the new A11Y features in Canvas2D Level 1 we need to execute on our plan [1] from last year's TPAC meeting to re-publish a Canvas2D Level 1 Last Call. 

FTR, the 16  CR bugs are recorded here:
and they include the following two bugs:
whose changes were made in Dec 2014.

The candidate Last Call draft should identify the CR bug(s) that is significant enough to force the additional Last Call.  See [1].

Can either of you prepare such a candidate Last Call document so that we can do a CfC to get it published?  

I can help you work on the Status of This Document (SOTD) if you need help with this.  And we can get one of the Team contacts to ensure that the document is actually published once it is approved by the HTML WG.

Subject: Chrome has implemented hit region support


Reproduced below are key portions of recent email exchanges with Dominic Mazzoni of Google, who has implemented hit region support in Chrome.

This should give us two independent hit region implementations, which we very much need for low-vision/magnification support in Canvas.

Chrome has hit region support implemented now. You can try it by visiting this url and clicking "Enable" next to "Enable experimental canvas features", and then restarting Chrome.


Do you know if anyone would be interested in helping to test our implementation against the spec for compliance? I think we can probably ship it if it looks like there's broad consensus and other browsers are shipping or actively working on it.

Hi Dominic,

We found some defects with canvas hit testing over a month ago in test


See test cases 2.12 on for Chrome Canary. Were these issues fixed?
