I read today that the World Wide Web Consortium is considering standards
for microphone audio input in HTML that will "completely exclude(s)
Macintosh and Unix web users from all those services requiring input and
upload from any device."
To "limit(s) the system's accessibility to users of Internet Explorer
under Windows." is to deny users of other systems the ability to enjoy
this feature. Hardly a far-sighted decision in view of the fact that
both UNIX and Macintosh users are abundant and their numbers are
growing. Please reconsider this decision. Thanks.
