ok, which exception should it throw? There’s a NotSupportedErrjor thrown when a path has no pixels, but that doesn’t quite seem right.

Some other options:
SyntaxError (when arguments isn’t one of the allowed ones)
InvalidStateError  (used when image has no image data)
IndexSizeError (when radii are negative in a radial gradient, other places)
TypeMismatchError (if not an img, canvas, or video with drawImage)

Thanks. Do you have a link to the build you’re looking at, as my source has no set of pixels at the beginning of the section.
I’m working on the source from html5_canvas_CR in github.

I reloaded and now the page is updated. sorry about that!
So, we're good on the 'set of pixels' issue but not the steps for 'addHitRegion'

Hi Jay,

1. "set of pixels" is still in the spec. It needs to refer to the path in the beginning of the section
2. the steps for addHitRegion don't cover what should happen if there is no control or ID. We need an extra step that checks this and throws an exception

The following changes were discussed during the canvas accessibility sub group call on 14 APR 2014


## The region representing the control

* Add a step that handles a null value for control, similar to the one that is defined for ID, just before the existing step 1.

> "If control is null, return nothing and abort these steps."

## The region for a pixel

* Change "set of pixels" to "path" in step 2 and link "path" to <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/2dcontext/html5_canvas_CR/#hit-region%27s-path>

## addHitRegion()

* add the following step after step 3 (Let specified pixels be the pixels contained in source path.)

> "Remove from specified pixels any pixels not contained within the
> clipping

## clearHitRegions()

* Remove Step 2 RE: Garbage Collection

## MouseEvent

We agreed that we would eliminate event retargeting altogether and just pass the event.region to the canvas element.  This would require the following changes:

* Revert order of steps and add step for handling a canvas element with no hit region list.  The first 4 steps should read as follows:

   1. If the pointing device is not indicating a pixel on the canvas, act as normal and abort these steps.
-> 2. If the canvas element has no hit region list, act as normal and
-> abort
these steps.
   3. Let pixel be the pixel indicated by the pointing device.
   4. Let region be the hit region that is the region for the pixel pixel on this canvas element's bitmap, if any.

* The following steps are no longer required (the numbers will be shifted by one if the above steps have been followed) and should be removed:

7. Let control be the region's control, if any.
8. Let the canvas element be the target of the event object, unless there is a control, then target the control instead.
9. Continue dispatching the event, but with the updated event object and target as given in the above steps.
