Several of us met to discuss SC for metadata for WCAG 2.1 today.

Here is our proposed language to get started:

Accessibility Metadata is provided which describes the accessibility characteristics of the content using an openly published vocabulary. At a minimum this is a machine readable description either on the page or referenced from the set of pages to which it applies. A human readable summary may also be provided.

We will meet again to define Accessibility Metadata. Define Openly-published vocabulary and create examples. Katie and Liddie will also work on editing Appendix C.

David Macdonald is adding an issue to GitHub as well.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the call for a successful meeting.
