Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

In order to help the community provide accessible multimedia, W3C has made public it's internal frequently-asked-questions page:
     *Multimedia Accessibility FAQ*
     http://www.w3.org/2008/06/video-notes

The FAQ provides some practical advice on:
- What do I need to do to make audio and video accessible?
- How do I get a transcript for my media?
- How do I do audio description of visuals?
- How do I do captions?
- Where can I get more information?

W3C's formal guidance on accessible multimedia is provided in WCAG, see:
     Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Overview
     http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag
To get a list of relevant WCAG 2.0 guidelines, success criteria, and techniques, see:
     How to Meet WCAG 2.0, Time-based Media: Guideline 1.2 section
     http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/quickref/#media-equiv
For more details on WCAG 2.0's coverage of accessible multimedia, follow the "Success Criteria for this Guideline" links at the bottom of:
