I (personally) feel that I should be spending more time on this issue 
(accessibility of canvas) but in the limited time that I have 
scratched my head over it, the result has been not much more than a 
few more scratch marks.  If you have ideas, or want to chat about it, 
I'll try to lend my ears...


[Mind you, the couple of times I have talked about debating the 
structure of how to address media accessibility, which also needs 
work, I have had no response.  The framework is more than just 
whether video titles have closed captions - it's about other 
accessibility axes, how I select or configure media to respond to my 
needs, and so on. Can anyone hypothesize why my attempts to start a 
discussion on this topic have gone nowhere?]
