ISSUE-203 -- All Media Elements should have the ability to have both short and longer textual descriptions associated to the element -- raised
17:09:13 [trackbot]
17:09:36 [adrianba]
rubys: important that we get CP for these issues - if we don't get proposals the issues will be deferred to
17:10:14 [adrianba]
janina: a11y tf thinks issue 203 should be considered after issue 30
17:10:24 [adrianba]
... since one depends on the other
17:10:47 [adrianba]
... you need both an alt text and a longdesc for the media element - this is separate from the poster that it may have
17:11:09 [adrianba]
... we in good shape on the alt but not on the longdesc because we don't yet know which mechanism we will end up with for that
17:11:29 [adrianba]
rubys: are you suggesting the deadline moved after?
17:11:39 [adrianba]
janina: yes, to start after the longdesc question is resolved
17:11:54 [adrianba]
paulc: are you asking that we don't process 203 before 30 or that we delay calling change proposals
17:12:05 [rubys]
17:12:23 [adrianba]
janina: delaying change proposals call because the only thing that could be proposed is used longdesc or described by that we're talking about in 30
17:12:39 [adrianba]
... CP will be to apply that mechanism to the video tag
17:12:54 [adrianba]
paulc: could you write the CP saying using the solution from issue 30
17:13:09 [adrianba]
... then all we have to make sure we don't come to a decision on 203 before 30
17:13:16 [adrianba]
rubys: before the deadline?
17:13:22 [adrianba]
janina: yes
17:13:44 [adrianba]
... if that kind of conditional proposal is acceptable then this is reasonable
17:13:59 [adrianba]
paulc: suggest that you get this into the CP and ask for explicit permission from chairs
