== Inaccessible diagram ==
From
  
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-media/2016Jan/0000.html

[[
The diagram in this document should be made accessible. There
are several ways to achieve this, including accessible vector graphics
with SVG, a link to an external description (standard <a href> or
@longdesc), or an in-page description of the graphical content.

        a.)     We provide for your reference a draft textual diagram
        description, though our draft requires enhancement as per b.)
        below. The draft description is available at:

        
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-apa/2016Jan/0014.html

        b.)     In addition to a textual description of your diagram 
for
        the benefit of those readers who cannot see it, wWe find the
        diagram also does not clearly convey its meaning and may 
benefit
        significantly from redesign. Please reconsider what you're
        trying to convey and determine if there is a more intuitive 
way
        to present the data.  Please clearly label your switches,
        connector endpoints, and relationships, e.g. What are the 
three
        dots under the video decoders? Are all the audio decoder
        switches open or is that a drawing error? What is the green
        circled X that the audio decoders are pointing to? What are 
the
        triangles? What is the meaning of the different colors of
        SourceBuffers? What is the viewer expected to learn from this
        diagram?

        c.)     Please consider creating this diagram using SVG. We
        believe it is actually an excellent candidate for the 
accessible
        graphic markup approaches being defined by the joint ARIA and
        SVG Task Force.[2] One member of this TF has already offered 
to
        assist, should you decide on SVG.
