       <h2>Introduction</h2>
       <p>
-        The <cite>HTML Media Capture</cite> specification enables web page
-        authors to declaratively specify the upload of audio, video and still
-        images by adding a new attribute to the HTML <code>input</code>
-        element. This enables simplified capture using device capture device
-        supporting a variety of scenarios.
-      </p>
-      <p>
-        Such an approach does not provide detailed user control over capture,
-        so use cases requiring correlating specific individual audio and video
-        streams may be met by using another specification, <cite>Media Capture
-        and Streams</cite> [[GETUSERMEDIA]]. Access to media streams from the
-        hosting device is out of scope for this specification.

-      <p>
-        This specification extends the <code><a>HTMLInputElement</a></code>
-        interface with a new <code><a>capture</a></code> attribute. The
-        <code><a>capture</a></code> boolean attribute allows authors to
-        directly request use of the device capture mechanism.
