Hello everyone,

Today while updating the "Accessibility Change Proposal Status" [1]
and Accessibility Issues in the HTML5 Tracker" [2] Wiki pages, I noted
several Accessibility Change Proposals are due this month. I'm not
sure who is working on what. But for everyone's information the
following are due:

* January 12: HTML-ISSUE-134, "Provide tablist and tab states for menu
and command elements respectively" [3] [4].  Bug-triage sub team
decided to add the a11yTF keyword to the bug for Issue 134 [5].

* January 19: HTML-ISSUE-135 "Put back direct link to the W3C version
of the canvas 2d context spec" [6] [7]. The bug team has not yet
indicated on bug 10921 whether this is a task force priority or not
[8] [9].

* January 26: HTML-ISSUE-142 "No alternative text description for
video key frame (poster)" [10] [11]. The bug for Issue 142 [12] is
marked with the "a11ytf" keyword. I think John is working on this one.

* January 26: HTML-ISSUE-146, "<video> should allow muted as a content
attribute" [13] [14]. Martin indicated that this is a task force
priority [15]. John is this something that the media team is pursuing?

In addition, last month HTML-ISSUE 133: "Add a modal attribute to
html5 to indicate a modal segment of the DOM (modal dialog)" was
closed without prejudice as no change proposals were received by the
December 10th deadline [16] [17] [18]. If anyone is interested in
writing a change proposal for Issue 133, I suspect  the HTML Chairs
might possibly reopen it as they did for Rich in Issue 130 [19] [20].

For information on writing accessibility change proposals please refer
to the Wiki [21].
