The name needs changing from Open Annotation -> Web Annotations, and the old links will have to be fixed as the W3C version wasn’t a REC when we stopped work, but other than that it should be ready for testing/publishing if people are interested in moving it forward. The only open issue is a minor tweak to the examples.[1]

Hi Matt, 


In fact I didn't spot this one before, thank you for the reminder. 

If the EPUB community wants to make EPUB annotations sharable, this spec must be used as a start, without doubt.

Maybe I’ve missed some context, but isn’t what you describe exactly what the Open Annotation in EPUB specification already defines?


We worked closely with Rob Sanderson and Paolo Ciccarese to define the implementation, and it’s how epubcfis ended up in their specification. It got pulled into the edupub sphere, unfortunately, so never ended up getting finalized, but I’m not sure there are any issues left with it.

What W3C CG can do is 

- study a profile or extension of W3C Web Annotations for EPUB (starting from  <https://www.w3.org/TR/wpub-ann> https://www.w3.org/TR/wpub-ann I guess), 

- define how Web Annotations should be integrated in an EPUB container when this is desirable, 

- promote the use of Web Annotations and the Web Annotations Protocol ( <https://www.w3.org/TR/annotation-protocol/> https://www.w3.org/TR/annotation-protocol/) in the Publishing industry (-> reading systems).

Annotations are very important for accessibility. Hypothesis is not accessible, but if it were, this could be a great way for Disabled Student Service Offices (DSO) to provided the extended descriptions in EPUB  documents and to we content offered by universities and schools.

[Brainstorming, ideas]:


1) Annotation & note creating and sharing systems (for example shared highlightnings in textbooks)


I've seen demos of reading systems where annotations can be shared among a defined group within a particular reading system. Are you hoping to share annotations across different reading systems?
