-        This specification extends the <code><a>HTMLInputElement</a></code>
-        interface with a new <code><a>capture</a></code> attribute. The
-        attribute enables content authors to give hints of preferred means to
-        capture local media such as images, video, and sound, that is to be
-        subsequently uploaded. Conformant user agents provide their users more
-        seamless access to the above-mentioned media capture capabilities of
-        the hosting device.
+        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 unified capture and upload from the device
+        capture device without requiring a user to save a file and then upload
+        it in separate steps.
