Hi Makoto,

The EPUB accessibility specifications are quite independent of WCAG cycles at this point of time. Web community will need time to understand concepts like metadata, which are extremely important for publications.

As George mentioned the EPUB Accessibility specification 1.1 would be done in EPUB 3 community group (we have not heard anything against it, so it is safe to assume this)
The ideal release date for version 1.1 is early 2018, but the community group has not started the work yet, so we are not sure about it at this point of time.

I hope that CG would start before June, so that we can have more deterministic information for you to present in ISO meeting.

With regards
Avneesh

George, 

I hope to have a better idea about the publication schedule, 
since I would like to discuss this topic in the upcoming F2F meeting 
of ISO/IEC JTC1\SC34\JWG7 in June.  

For the joint publication by W3C and ISO/IEC JTC1, we 
need a new work item proposal in SC34, which is followed 
by a three-month(?)  ballot.  After W3C finishes the content 
of EPUB Accessibility 1.1, we need a  Proposed Draft 
Technical Specification, which is followed by a six-month(?) 
ballot.

JWG7 is a joint WG by SC34, ISO TC46, and IEC TC100/TA10.
F2F meetings of JWG7 are held twice a year: one 
is together with SC34 meetings, while another is together 
with TC46 meetings.  Since I am in SC34, the F2F meeting 
in June (Tokyo) is good for me to raise this topic.

Regards,
Makoto

  I don’t know, but as I see it, there are things that need to be introduced that are not in WCAG 2.1.   The EPUB community working group  would be the place to introduce these items.



  Best

  George

  Avneesh and George,



  When do you think that EPUB accessibility 1.1 

  should be published?   Do you intend to wait for 

  the next version of WCAG?



  Regards,

  Makoto

    Dear Publishing Business group members,



    In our meeting at London, George and I were given task to propose the way forward for accessibility work in W3C publishing groups.

    We have discussed various aspects and prepared a document, the same is attached for further discussions and decisions.



    The chairs may schedule the discussion in our conference calls if they feel appropriate.



    With regards

    Avneesh
