The Canvas Element

Other than a reference to providing keyboard accessibility in the
fallback content, there is no reference to providing accessibility for
users with various disabilities.  Visual focus for off-screen elements
is an issue for users of screen magnification and low vision users, with
no visual keyboard indication and no tracking of programmatic focus in
the magnified area.  This makes "fallback content" appear to be the
"text-only alternative" of this decade.  Until there are strong
recommendations for how to make Canvas content accessible, there is a
huge risk of unequal access to interesting and innovative content.
