Re: SVG: Accessible Forms


thanks for yet another well considered and easy-to-read response*!
your comments around ARIA and SVG are noted.

however you fail to address the central issue, which as Filipe Sanches  
wrote me in a private email, and which I believe correctly states the

my query was intended to address this issue in particular. ie as to  
why whereas accessible html forms had been around for about a decade,  
accessible svg forms remain extremely hard to implement.
SVG1.1 has now been implemented by many UA and browsers, but still  
miss this vital  "user"  functionality.

There is a structural fault in the W3C process, and that is why  
process are copied into this thread.
in a sense this is a continuation of a previous thread** on that theme.

I would appreciate it, if you would consider further and respond.

I claim that developers and in particular the large corporations that  
fund w3c have undue influence.
The result is a failure to include users in, and put them at the  
centre of the w3c specification process,
