<Matthew_Atkinson> https://svgwg.org/specs/svg-native/

<MichaelC> https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/IMSC_Hypothetical_Render_Model

<Irfan> Fredrik: It's a very structured document. Is it assumed that this document already confirmed to the AG's.

<Irfan> Fredrik: if a TTML is cooncted to WCAG, we can expect TTML content to comply with WCAG.

<Irfan> janina: TTML does on synchronization. what are you expecting in-order to WCAG

<Irfan> Fredrik: if TTML is beyond synchronization it is surprising.

<Irfan> it keep referring to TTML

<Irfan> on the other hand this is timed content. will has to with synchronization

<Irfan> Matthew_Atkinson: they are talking about TTML a lot in this document and something covers a11y in TTML. You need to be aware if there is any other a11y issue and if there is it has to be documented

<Irfan> janina: we should be careful if we call it TTML issue.

<Irfan> PaulG: TTML document referes a11y guidelines.

<Matthew_Atkinson> https://www.w3.org/TR/imsc-hrm/ is from the Timed Text WG (per https://github.com/w3c/imsc-hrm#imsc-hypothetical-render-model-hrm )

<Irfan> janina: TimeText is very supported to accessibility.

janina: TTML has a lot mroe a11y support outside W3C than VTT. Anything implemented based on TTML will be aware of a11y and UAAG.

Matthew_Atkinson: Two questiosn: how do you feel about coming in real ilfe and who do you want to meet with?

Matthew_Atkinson: This wil come up in the TF meetings.

Matthew_Atkinson: Anyone who wants to say they are not coming or indeed are coming is free to say so now as well.
