Dear APA,

[blame John Foliot for suggesting to me that you would be interested!]

TTWG is considering requirements for supporting audio descriptions (also known as video descriptions) in a document format e.g. TTML. I have proposed a draft requirements document for this use case which can be found attached to the email archived at https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tt/2016Sep/0034.html which describes the workflow being supported and a short list of requirements.

Feedback is welcome either directly to me or to the TTWG public reflector; the intent is to add features to TTML2 to support these requirements.

kind regards,
