Subject: Call for Consensus (CFC): APA Comment on Picture in Picture
To: Accessible Platform Architectures Administration <

Colleagues: This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to the Accessible
Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group testing for agreement on an
updated formal comment to the Picture in Picture specification.

The document was authored by the Media Working Group
(https://www.w3.org/media-wg/) .

An accessibility review was requested of the APA as part of our role
in performing horizontal review of W3C documents for accessibility

It was reviewed by APA member Becky who proposed that an accessibility
statement be included with this specification. The goal is to provide
implementers of picture in picture with accessibility guidance. The
following proposed accessibility  considerations statement was
discussed at the July 28, 2021 APA meeting

It is important that the interface for picture in picture meets the
requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). All
users must be able to find and navigate to/from the picture in picture
and enable/disable/operate all controls using various input
modalities, color and contrast settings, and assistive technologies.

For example, the WCAG Guideline 2.1 requires, "Make all functionality
available from a keyboard". Any picture in picture implementation and
interface must be full operational with the keyboard only.

If the group agrees, this comment will be posted to the Media Working
Group's picture-in-picture github issues tracker

***Action to Take***

This CfC is now open for objection, comment, as well as statements of
support via email. Silence will be interpreted as support, though
messages of support are certainly welcome.

If you object to this proposed action, or have comments concerning
this proposal, please respond by replying on list to this message no
later than 23:59 (Midnight) Boston Time, Wednesday 4 August.

NOTE: This Call for Consensus is being conducted in accordance with
the APA Decision Policy published
