Hi John,

I know there is already an example in Steve's doc as I requested it in the
first place in Bug 9174.

The whole point is that the Steve's document and HTML5 are in conflict. This
bug has NOT been fixed in HTML5 proper.

I am marking this bug as TrackerRequest to escalate it to an ISSUE.  

Suggested tracker title: Provide a Webcam example that is in accord with WCAG 2
or Defer to "HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives" 

Tracker Description:

Currently the HTML5 Spec contains the text:

<blockquote
cite="http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/CR/embedded-content-0.html#unknown-images">
the image is obtained in some automated fashion without any associated
alternative text (e.g. a Webcam)
</blockquote>

There would always be something a person could provide for Webcam text so that
it is in accord with WCAG 2. Please REMOVE the offending text completely and
link to "HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives":
http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/#sec10 as a webcam example has be added
there per bug 9215.
