Hello Everyone,

Since last week's report we have had one new a11y bug reported.
Details are in section one.

A draft survey for the CAPTCHA bug was presented to Mike Smith sixteen
weeks ago. A status update would be useful. Details are in section
two.

We currently have an "A11yTF" keyword backlog of thirty seven bugs.
Details are in section three.

Complete details are as follows.

1. NEW BUG:

1.1 Bug 10077: "The <embed> should support an alt attribute. While the
embedded content should provide for accessibility of the embedded
object, the developer doesn't always have control over those content,
some embeddable formats are inherently less accessible, and the
developer should have a means to provide added context (title can
help, but different purpose) to help the user determine whether the
embedded content is worth navigating into." reported by
contributor@whatwg.org.

Recommendation: Apply the "A11yTF" keyword, a task force member
volunteers and agrees to actively work on and see this bug through to
closure. This bug seems to meet draft a11ytf bug criteria.

2. CAPTCHA BUG:

A draft survey for the CAPTCHA bug was delivered to Mike Smith on March 21.

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2010Mar/0402.html

As discussed at the March 18 teleconference, the target time frame to
go live was over thirteen weeks ago.

Mike, what's up with this? Has it been decided to not hold a survey or
postpone a survey or cancel a survey? Is this bug now considered
superseded by the alt Change Proposals? Should I drop this item from
this weekly report?

3. "A11yTF" KEYWORD BACKLOG:

We currently have thirty seven HTML5 Spec bugs awaiting task force
decision of whether to apply the a11ytf keyword or not.
