Message-ID: <4B587935.1010605@w3.org>
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Going through the bugs the task force should take on
I was able to put nearly all of them into a category. I think it will be
most useful for us to look at them by category, address general issues
for that category, and then address the specific filed bugs for that
category. Here are the categories I arrived at:

    * text alternatives - mechanisms to define text alternatives images
      and other types of objects
    * summary - table summary
    * media - direct accessibility of included media (audio, video, etc)
    * canvas - direct accessibility of canvas
    * aria - aria integration or harmonization issues
    * drag and drop - accessibility of drag and drop
    * display - display rules and quirks for features
    * focus - management and reaction to keyboard focus
    * labels - how to label elements (distinct from text alternatives)
    * semantics - full set of required semantics don't appear to be defined

Looked at this way, there are only 10 major topics (at present) for the
task force to consider. As we close on a given topic, we should be able
to close on a number of bugs all at once.

This is just a proposal to help give something to react to and serve as
a springboard for organizing the task force work.
