Hi Kenny!

I am in Sydney - great to see a fellow Australian help out!

You might want to start by having a look at the specifications that
are currently under discussion at

http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Media_MultitrackAPI

and

http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Media_TextAssociations .

I also wrote a blog post that is more easily readable as an
introduction, but not technically as accurate at
http://blog.gingertech.net/2010/04/11/introducing-media-accessibilit-into-html5-media/
.

If you want more background, feel free to read up on past email
threads at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/ or
ask questions here.

Cheers,
Silvia.
