This is a call for consensus within the HTML a11y task force to
record a resolution supporting the following Change Proposal:

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

The "Media Multitrack API" change proposal relates to HTML WG issue 9:

  http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/9

To quote from the proposal's Summary section:

  This is a proposal for introduction of a JavaScript API for
  HTML5 media elements that allows Web authors to determine the
  data that is available from a media resource. It exposes the
  tracks that the resource contains, the type of data it is (e.g.
  audio/vorbis, text/srt, video/theora), the role this data plays
  (e.g. audio description, caption, sign language), and the actual
  language it is in (RFC3066 language code). It also enables
  control over the activation state of the track.

If you have comments about the resolution to support this
proposal, please send them by e-mail to this list prior to this
Thursday's task-force telcon.
