Message-ID: <6EED8F7006A883459D4818686BCE3B3B02C12F83@MAIL01.austin.utexas.edu>

The following is a summary of a proposal sent to Team A. The full
proposal is available at [1]. 

<summary>
On the 22 December call I took an action item (not recorded in the
minutes) to reviewSC 1.2.2. [Note: this came up near the end of the call
when we took a quick look at the "Misc. questions" survey to see if we'd
be able to get through it quickly. We decided that complex issues would
require more time than was available-- but there was still time to give
me the action<grin>.]

<current>
Audio descriptions  of video are provided for prerecorded  multimedia
</current>

The WG was concerned that the SC appears to require audio description
for all multimedia, while How to Meet SC 1.2.2 might redefine the SC by
describing situations when audio description is not required. The intent
of the action item was to resolve this apparent discrepancy.

Recommendations:
1.	Retain the current wording for SC 1.2.2-no change is required.
2.	Modify the Intent section of How to Meet SC 1.2.2 as per the
proposal sent to Team A for review.
3.	Update our definition of audio description (proposal sent to
Team A).
4.	Create a general technique that explains how to develop audio
descriptions, to be used in combination with the relevant
technology-specific technique. (Draft technique sent to Team A.)
</summary>

SC 1.2 has been assigned to Team A (see the minutes for 22 December [2].


Sc 1.2.2 is scheduled for discussion  by the full Working Group on the
19 January call (see the Schedule for getting to last call [3].
