Eric Carlson yes
Matthew May yes
Jean-Pierre EVAIN yes
Ian Hickson yes
Judy Brewer yes I'm interested in comparative technical efficacy of solution frameworks for accessible media from the consumer perspective. I'm also interested in standards harmonization issues that arise when transitioning &/or bridging traditional delivery modes for accessible media, e.g. classical TV etc, especially where this has differed internationally, and newer web-based delivery modes for digital media, since harmonization issues can affect availability of accessible media for the end user. I'm prepared to comment briefly as needed, but am most interested in listening to discussion on comparative merits of different solution frameworks.

Could you please clarify the time of day of the meeting (it is currently listed as "one day," and confirm that the meeting venue is wheelchair accessible. Thank you.
Marisa DeMeglio yes
WonSuk Lee yes
Kangchan Lee yes
Jonathan Jeon yes
Dick Bulterman yes I am chair of the SMIL WG with SYMM. We've had a relatively long history of looking at accessibility in the context of timed media objects. If there is an opportunity, I'd like to highlight the broad mechanisms that we have supported in SMIL, since they may instructive to a broader HTML5 audience. (The point is not to discuss syntax, but to share general experiences.)

One central issue is the manner that time is supported within a document. Accessibility means choice, but this choice is fundamentally temporal in nature. The accessibility mechanisms need to be synchronized, so that accessibility objects can be turned on or off at relevant synchronization points along with the base video.

We think that our experience with SMIL can help clarify some issues and may help to develop HTML-specific approaches.
Douglas Schepers yes will be arriving around noon
