As I mentioned on this week's TF telcon, it seems the discussion
about the Media Text Associations proposal has reached a point
where it would be useful to try a call for consensus on the
proposal, and to give everyone in the TF a chance to respond to
that CfC, and to have any points of disagreement with it recorded
and reviewed in the TF.

So, this is a call for consensus within the HTML a11y task force
to record a resolution supporting the following Change Proposal:

  Media Text Associations

The "Media Text Associations" change proposal relates to HTML WG issue 9:


To quote from the proposal's Summary section:

  This is a proposal to extend the HTML5 declarative markup for
  media elements with markup to reference external associated and
  time-synchronous text resources. The aim is in particular to
  reference in a standard way external captions, subtitle, and
  possibly textual audio descriptions, as well as possibly other
  time-aligned text such as lyrics, karaoke, or ticker text.

  Similar markup could potentially be used in future for external
  synchronised audio and video resources too, but it is too early
  to experiment with these.

Please read the entire contents of the current proposal; then, if
you have specific points of disagreement with the proposal which
you want to have recorded and considered by the TF, please send
them by e-mail to this list.
