Call for Consensus (CfC); Publish "Techniques for providing useful text alternatives"

From: <janina@rednote.net>
Date: Fri, 10 Apr 2015 17:47:52 -0400
To: HTML Accessibility Task Force <public-html-a11y@w3.org>
Message-ID: <20150410214752.GG17163@opera.rednote.net>
Colleagues:

This time with the correct pointer. Sorry, everyone; and thanks, John!

This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the HTML-A11Y Task Force to
publish the revised "Techniques for providing useful text alternatives"
as a W3C note.

The candidate document is available at:

http://www.w3.org/2015/03/alt-draft.html

As discussed over several recent Task Force teleconferences, this CfC
would effectively publish only a stub document inasmuch as the content
formerly provided by this document has been subsumed by the HTML 5.0
specification itself.

ACTION TO TAKE

According to agreed Procedures, this CfC is now open for objection,
comment, as well as statements of support via email. Silence will be
interpreted as support, though messages of support are certainly
welcome.

If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning this
proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no later
than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time on Thursday 16 April..

Janina Sajka, For the Task Force Co-Facilitators
