Media Accessibility User Requirements Working Draft Updated

   14 August 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4024

   The Protocols and Formats Working Group (PFWG) today published
   an updated Working Draft of "Media Accessibility User
   Requirements," a planned W3C Working Group Note. This document
   describes the accessibility requirements of people with
   disabilities with respect to audio and video on the Web,
   particularly in the context of HTML5. It explains alternative
   content technologies that people use to get audio and video
   content, and how these fit in the larger picture of
   accessibility, both technically within a web user agent and
   from a production process point of view. Learn more about the
   Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
