Task Force Update--19 November

From: Janina Sajka <janina@rednote.net>
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 2009 18:24:03 -0500
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20091119232403.GB4175@sonata.rednote.net>
Your Task Force Facilitators are keenly aware that much of our
organizational work to date has not been visible to you. Meanwhile, we
know people are eager to get started working on HTML A11y issues under
the TF. So, this brief email will summarize what we've been doing to get
the TF organized and what you can expect in the near term.

*	Teleconferences

	If you HAVE NOT yet completed the teleconference survey and
indicated your preferred times for our telephonic meetings, you have
until 23:59 Boston Time this Friday, 20 November to so do:
http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/44061/200911_scheduling/

	We will announce our teleconference day and time during the week
of 23 November.

	Because of the Thanksgiving Holliday in the U.S. this coming
week, our first teleconference will be sometime during the week of 30
November.

*	Wiki

	Meanwhile, our Wiki is now available. Please help populate it!

*	Subteams

	We already have an active group working on HTML Canvas
Accessibility. In the next few days we expect to work with the HTML
Media Accessibility Subteam to help get that activity moving forward. As
you will recall, this Subteam got a great start during a daylong
"Gathering" at Stanford University just ahead of TPAC:
http://www.w3.org/2009/11/01-media-minutes.html

	The Canvas Subteam already has a teleconference time and an
active email list. We expect there will be similar working resources
established for HTML Media Accessibility--as well as any other subteams
we may establish during the course of our work.

*	Tracker

	Michael Cooper will be setting up tracker support for our TF so
that we can better track our issues and assigned actions.
