I had an action item to do a cross-comparison of the accessible media 
requirements with the JTC1 Special Working Group on Accessibility 
"Accessibility considerations for people with disabilities. Part I: 
User Needs Summary."

Here is the primary documents page for the JTC1 SWG:
         http://www.jtc1access.org/

If you select "ISO/IEC TR 29138 Parts 1-3 (publicly available)" it 
will take you to this page
         http://www.jtc1access.org/TR29138.htm
from which you can select the first document, Part I: User Needs 
Summary. You'll need to read through and acknowledge the license 
page, but note that the specification is publicly available (= free).

I have found a cross-comparison difficult because the taxonomies of 
user requirements are so different between these two documents (JTC1 
SWG's user requirements list on the one hand, and the HTML A11Y Media 
sub-group's user requirements list on the other hand). In addition, 
our list already to go into considerably more depth with regard to 
media accessibility).

I'm putting this note on the list in case someone else cares to check 
this task; and also in case others find the list of user requirements 
useful for general reference.
