Dear APA, I hope it is okay to send this message to this public reflector – please forgive me if I'm in the wrong place…

As you are may be aware from the recent review, TTWG introduced audio related features to TTML2 in anticipation of a profile to support audio description, all the way from scripting to mixing. TTWG and the Web and TV IG also briefly discussed requirements for such a profile, which were added to the TTML2 GitHub repository's wiki and discussed at TPAC 2016.

I write to invite anyone interested in helping to create and establish that profile to let me know of their interest so that I can take the next steps to establish an appropriate group (e.g. a W3C Community Group) to begin working on it. I'm trying to get the message out widely, so I've prepared the attached 1-pager – feel free to forward it on.

Do let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to participate,

Kind regards,


Nigel Megitt
