Colleagues:

Attached here is my response to Cynthia regarding the session with ARIA.
In this response I make a an initial attempt at a problem statement--but
it's incomplete. All advice welcome. Once we frame our agenda and
problem statement, I'll send personal invitations to the list of
invitees we gathered last year when we first tried to grapple with these
issues--including Joanie, Glenn, etc.

Meanwhile, all wording suggestions are most welcome.

Janina

attached mail follows:


Hi, Cynthia:

I agree I owe everyone a better explanation of agenda. This is not that
email. Rather, it's a quick acknowledgement. I'll need another day or so
to get a better framing message together.

Meanwhile, thanks for reading the Pronunciation spec. It's what I mean
when I refer to "near term problems" in AAPIs, because we have no
mechanism to support screen readers. We also have a gap between AT and
browsers over how we should structure providing spans of SSML:

AT
https://github.com/w3c/pronunciation/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+label%3AAT

Browsers
https://github.com/w3c/pronunciation/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+label%3ABrowsers
 


 This "near term problem" was easier to define. I'll get a more thorough
 message out before week's end.

 Best,

 Janina
