           Summary: provide reference and info about HTML5: Techniques for
                    providing useful text alternatives in html5 spec
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: a11y
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

the working group have agreed to publish

HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/alt-techniques/


It contains normative author conformance requirements and informative
advice,examples and references which are meant as a replacement for
the content in the sections from:
4.8.1.1 Requirements for providing text to act as an alternative for images
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/embedded-content-1.html#alt
up to and including
4.8.1.1.12 General guidelines
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/embedded-content-1.html#general-guidelines

I think would be prudent and appropriate if both documents (HTML5 and
HTML5: alt) provided clear neutral information about the existance of
the other and how they relate.

For the HTML5 spec I suggest that such information be placed at the
start of section '4.8.1.1 Requirements for providing text to act as an
alternative for images'
