Abstract


This specification defines two profiles of [TTML2]: a text-only profile and an image-only profile. These profiles are intended to be used across subtitle and caption delivery applications worldwide, thereby simplifying interoperability, consistent rendering and conversion to other subtitling and captioning formats.

This specification improves on [ttml-imsc1.0.1] by supporting contemporary practices, while retaining compatibility with [ttml-imsc1.0.1] documents. Relative to [ttml-imsc1.0.1], any addition or deprecation of features are summarized at Appendix L. Summary of substantive changes (non-normative).

It is feasible to create documents that simultaneously conform to both [ttml10-sdp-us] and the text-only profile.

The specification defines extensions to [TTML2], as well as incorporates extensions specified in [SMPTE2052-1] and [EBU-TT-D].

Both profiles are based on [SUBM].

This document was published by the Timed Text Working Group as a Candidate Recommendation. This document is intended to become a W3C Recommendation. Comments regarding this document are welcome. Please send them to public-tt@w3.org (subscribe, archives) with [imsc1.1] at the start of your email&#x27;s subject.

This Candidate Recommendation is expected to advance to Proposed Recommendation no earlier than 31 May 2018.

Please see the Working Group&#x27;s implementation report.

For this specification to exit the CR stage, at least 2 independent implementations of every feature defined in this specification but not already present in either [TTML2] or [ttml-imsc1.0.1] need to be documented in the implementation report. The Working Group does not require that implementations are publicly available but encourages them to be so.

The Working Group has not identified features &quot;at risk&quot; for this specification.
