WebVTT: The Web Video Text Tracks Format


feedback due by: 2019-05-02


This specification defines WebVTT, the Web Video Text Tracks format. Its main use is for marking up external text track resources in connection with the HTML &lt;track&gt; element. WebVTT files provide captions or subtitles for video content, and also text video descriptions [MAUR], chapters for content navigation, and more generally any form of metadata that is time-aligned with audio or video content. 

This specification is based on the Draft Community Group Report of the Web Media Text Tracks Community Group.
