Hello Thierry (and Nigel),

Thank you for this request. I have added your working draft to our radar:


We look forward to completing a review. Of course, we earlier did a review of a previous version and the open and/or addressed issues from that review should be integral to this one.

> Dear I18N,
> The W3C Timed Text Working Group has recently published a new working draft
> of the Timed Text Markup Language 2 (TTML2).
> https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/WD-ttml2-20170630/

> TTML2, provides a standardized representation of a particular subset of textual
> information with which stylistic, layout, and timing semantics are associated by
> an author or an authoring system for the purpose of interchange and processing.
> In addition to being used for interchange among legacy distribution content
> formats, TTML Content may be used directly as a distribution format, providing,
> for example, a standard content format to reference from a <track> element in
> an HTML5 document, or a <text> or <textstream> media element in a [SMIL 3.0]
> document.
> The TTML2 specification updates the TTML1 specification by adding vocabulary
> and semantics to address more of its core requirements, including the addition
> of support for:
>      raster images (both foreground and background)
>      author supplied fonts
>      audio descriptions and text to speech
>      ruby text annotations
>      improved vertical line layout
>      text emphasis, kerning, letter spacing, shadows, and variants
>      inline block layout
>      stereoscopic presentation (for 3-D viewing)
>      high definition resolution (HDR) presentation
>      continuous animation
>      hyperlinks
>      conditional element semantics
>      improved metadata extensibility
>      formalized intermediate document syntax
>      various other improvements and bug fixes
> The TTWG invites you to review this draft, and requests comments to be
> received by 30 Sept 2017. These comments will be used to fulfill the W3C
> Process [3] requirement for Wide Review of drafts, and  Horizontal Review [4]
> prior to publication as Candidate Recommendation.
> If you wish to make comments regarding this document, please send them to

> convenience [5].
