Comments from EOWG on Media Accessibility User Requirements W3C Editor's Draft 14 December 2011



  • comment {name}
  • Section 1, Media Accessibility CheckList: Suggestion: The media accessibility checklist is a treasure trove of detail for developers and implementers. This seems like a good place to mention something like: "Developers and implementers may want to refer directly to this checklist when implementing audio and video elements". {Paul, Feb 4, 2014}
  • Section 3.1, Described video: DV-7: Clarification: Is the term "provider" meant to be the same as an author or user, or something else? Provider may be interpreted as broadcaster or cable company. {Paul, Feb 4, 2014}
  • Section 3.5, Content navigation by content structure, Navigating ancillary content: Suggestion: The Mozilla Popcorn examples flow perfectly with this section...however, should specific examples like this be included? They might appear dated to future readers of this document. {Paul, Feb 4, 2014}
  • General content: nit-picky suggestion: The words "alternate" (used 5 times) and "alternative" (used 54 times) are used in this document interchangeably. Instances of "alternate" as used in this document should be changed to "alternative". {Paul, Feb 4, 2014}
  • copyediting:
