I just learned from the  ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34 secretariat  
that the path we used for the ISO/IEC Technical 
Specification for EPUB 3 is no longer available. 

At that time, member bodies (in our case, Korea) were 
able to submit Draft Technical Specifications using the 
fast-track procedure.  But the fast-track procedure for 
Technical Specifications will be removed from the directives 
(to be precise, JTC1 Supplement) very soon.

The only procedure for creating Technical Specifcations 
will be the normal process.  I will find out more about 
the amount of required works.

Regards,
Makoto

  Hi Makoto,

  Thanks for your offer for helping in ISO work.
  Indeed it should go in ISO technical specification.
  In London face to face Ivan clarified that only W3C rec track deliverables can go through W3C PAS route.

  So, most probably EPUB 3.1 and EPUB accessibility standard will go in ISO through the same path as EPUB 3/3.01.


  With regards

  Avneesh and George, 

  Your proposal looks sensible to me.  You wrote "To address the 
  valid concerns of lower significance of deliverables of community 
  groups, the accessibility specifications should become ISO standard 
  and should be aggressively promoted by The Publishing Business Group."

  First, do you mean a standard or a technical specifiation?  EPUB 3 
  is now a collection of technical specifications.

  Second, which ISO committee do you have in mind?  EPUB 3 is 
  handled by ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34/JWG7, which is a joint working 
  group by SC34, IEC TC100, and ISO TC46.  But WCAG2.0 
  was submitted by W3C to JTC1 as a PAS submission.

  I am sure that ISO/IEC JTC1/SC34/JWG7 will weclome this work, 
  although has no accessibility experts.  Although I am not an 
  accessibility expert yet, I can probably help the procedural part.

  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
