Subject:        W3C to Receive Emmy® for Work on Accessible Captioning



Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

We wanted to share some exciting news: The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) 
will receive a Technology & Engineering Emmy ® Award for work on 
standardization and pioneering development of broadband captioning. W3C's 
Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) helps make video content more accessible 
to people with disabilities, particularly people who are deaf or hard of 
hearing, through text captioning.

More info about the award and about TTML is available in a press release 
at:
                 <https://www.w3.org/2016/01/emmyawardttml.html.en>

Making video content accessible is part of the mission of W3C's Web 
Accessibility Initiative (WAI), and WAI initiated the collaborative work 
on captioning in TTML. WAI's continuing work in this area includes recent 
updating of the Media Accessibility User Requirements at:
                 <http://www.w3.org/TR/media-accessibility-reqs/>

An introduction to web accessibility is at:
                 <http://www.w3.org/standards/webdesign/accessibility>

Thanks to everyone who contributes to accessibility work through W3C and 
WAI!

Regards,
Shawn Henry, WAI Outreach
Judy Brewer, WAI Director
