Timed Text Task Force
Work TTWG_Consensus_Input is ongoing on a consensus input to the Timed Text WG charter revision process.
TTML and WebVTT are two specifications being developed within the W3C for the representation of timed text (captions, subtitles, commentary, karaoke...).
This Task Force (TF) of the Web & TV Interest Group (IG) was created at the request of the IG membership at TPAC 2012 to fulfill the objectives below.
Develop recommendations to facilitate the use of TTML and WebVTT content on the Web, including interoperability with other timed text formats.
Engaging with external groups (#External Organizations) as needed,
- Document scope and variations of TTML and WebVTT, including external specifications and efforts based on TTML and WebVTT (see tt/Timed Text Efforts)
- Gather Web-based timed text use cases from the TV and Media industry (see tt/Timed Text Use Cases)
- Study interoperability between TTML and WebVTT
- Develop requirements and recommendations in the form of a report
- Suggest improvements to W3C specifications in the form of bug reports
