           Summary: WebSRT seems to too much focus on captions
           Product: HTML WG

        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

WebSRT, especially voice declaration and cue text, seems to have only
caption-specific features. As WebSRT is supposed to be used to provide
synthesized audio descriptions (and possibly synthesized sign languages in the
near future), additional options for audio descriptions would be needed. Or
these optional features could be moved to other places, e.g., CSS.
