Initial Set of "A11y" Bugs which Were Determined Not to Have the "A11yTF" Keyword Applied to Them

In January 2009 the task force decided not to apply the "a11ytf" keyword to the following bugs. This does not mean the TF has no interest in them, but we do not have immediate plans to work on them. The TF may review these bugs in the future. In Bugzilla they are tagged with the "a11y" keyword only.

Aria Bugs

  1. 6496: Allow <img aria-labelledby> to act as a caption Reported by Simon Pieters. Declined a11ytf status February 11, 2010.
  2. 8698: Add conformance criteria info to header/banner Reported by Steve Faulkner. Declined a11ytf Status February 11, 2010.
  3. 8700: Modify contentinfo mapping and conformance Reported by Steve Faulkner. Declined a11ytf Status February 11, 2010.
  4. 8701: Modify main role conformance info Reported by Steve Faulkner. Declined a11ytf Status February 11, 2010.

Canvas Bugs

Media Bugs

  1. Bug 8658: Availability of captions or additional audio tracks" reported Reported by Gez Lemon. Declined a11ytf status February 4, 2010.

Table Headers

These bugs directly relate to HTML Issue 20. That issue is now closed. The headers algorithm in HTML5 adopted all proposed improvements with respect the headers="" attribute. Testing issues have been taken up by the Testing Task Force Bug in 7260.

  1. 5822: The headers attribute should be able to reference a td Reported by Gez Lemon. Declined a11ytf status February 11, 2010. [table headers]
  2. 5823: Scope allowable on a td [table headers] Reported by Gez Lemon. Declined a11ytf status February 11, 2010. [table headers]
  3. 6181: Process table feedback (including headers='" issue) Reported by Ian 'Hixie' Hickson. Declined a11ytf status February 11, 2010.
  4. 6462: Self-reference and cyclic references in headers Reported by Simon Pieters. Declined a11ytf status February 11, 2010.
  5. 7260: Create testsuite for table headers association Reported by James Graham. Declined a11ytf status February 11, 2010.
