From: Shawn Henry <shawn@w3.org>
Date: Thu, 14 Aug 2014 08:13:10 -0500
Message-ID: <53ECB5E6.1060806@w3.org>
To: WAI Interest Group <w3c-wai-ig@w3.org>
Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Protocols and Formats Working Group (PFWG) invites you to comment on the updated Working Draft of:
       Media Accessibility User Requirements

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. Additional information is in the document's Abstract and Status sections.

This is an updated Working draft that will continue to be developed. PFWG plans to eventually publish it as a W3C Working Group Note.

WAI encourages you to provide feedback on this draft, particularly:
  * Are the use cases for media accessibility clear and complete?
  * Do the features to enhance media accessibility meet the use cases?
  * Are the technical requirements for media accessibility complete and achievable?

Please send comments to the publicly-archived list:
       by *19 September 2014*

The first URI above goes to the latest version of the document. The "dated" version of this draft is: <http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-media-accessibility-reqs-20140814/ > The difference between these URIs are explained in Referencing and Linking to WAI Guidelines and Technical Documents at: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/linking.html>

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your comments.
Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.
