Date: Thu, 29 Mar 2012 12:45:08 -0400
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20120329164508.GD4810@sonata.rednote.net>
Colleagues:

On 29 March last the HTML-A11Y Task Force teleconference meeting
reached consensus as follows:

RESOLUTION: The HTML-A11Y Task Force confirms that ARIA-DescribedAT will
not be ready for HTML 5 in HTML 5's currently published timeframe, and
therefore reaffirms its support of Laura's authored CP to reinstate
longdesc (Issue-30).

The TF resolution, together with minutes of the discussion leading up to
it, is logged at:
http://www.w3.org/2012/03/29-html-a11y-minutes.html#item03

As usual, if there is objection to this consensus position, please
respond by replying to this message no later than close of business,
Boston Time, on Monday 2 April.
