HTML5 Last Call review help requested

From: Jeanne Spellman <jeanne@w3.org>

Message-ID: <4DFF8737.2010201@w3.org>

To all AUWG participants and list lurkers,

The HTML5 Accessibility Task Force of the Protocols and Formats Working 
Group has asked for help in reviewing the HTML5 specification which has 
entered Last Call status.  It is a very large spec, and the people who 
have been working on it for a long time are already busy with existing 
issues and don't have the bandwidth to add a new complete review. Early 
reviewers have found accessibility problems in new areas of the spec, so 
it is important that a thorough review be done for accessibility issues.

PFWG has divided the spec into 35 sections and have asked for volunteers 
to review a section and write their comments into the wiki page linked 
in the first column. PF's priorities are to find reviewers for the 
sections: Globals, Block, Inline, Obsolete features, and Tables.  See:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/HTML/wiki/Spec_Review

Individual reviewers may be asked to write future change proposals and 
respond to requests for more information, but the direct interaction 
with HTML5 (bug filing and tracking) will be managed by the Task Force.

The HTML5 Working Group rejects comments that do not meet their 
particular requirements, so the Task Force asks that you emphasize 
technical information or use cases to document a comment. Please feel 
free to contact me for more information on what the Task Force is 
looking for.

Because of the complexity of filing a HTML5 bug, PF requests that all 
review of HTML5 be completed *** before 15 July *** to allow time to 
research and write the bugs before the HTML5 deadline of 3 August. HTML5 
will not discuss any bugs filed after the 3 August deadline.

Please let me know if you intend to review a section of the spec, and I 
will update the wiki.  Please send any comments to me (jeanne@w3.org) 
and I will add them to the PF wiki.  If you are a member of PF or the 
Task Force, you can update the wiki yourself, but in the interests of 
time, I will enter any wiki comments for non-members.

Thank you all for your continued dedication to improving accessibility 
on the web.

Regards,

jeanne
