The Chairs have agreed to extend the Call for Alternate Proposals for ISSUE-194 until Thu Apr 5 (two weeks from today).

After talking to some relevant co-workers about the proposal on the table, I'd like to volunteer to write a counter proposal for this issue.

I agree with Silvia that a delay on this issue would be beneficial. I think there is a clear need to be able to associate a transcript with a media element in the HTML5 timeframe, but I have several concerns with the approach taken in the existing proposal. Unfortunately, I don't currently have a sufficiently defined proposal to make. I will work to develop one over the next two weeks if the chairs will grant me an extension.


Thank you,
Ted
