Call for Participation in Immersive Captions Community Group

The Immersive Captions Community Group has been launched:

The goal of this community group is to determine and publish best practices for access, activation, and display settings for captions with different types of Immersive Media – AR, VR & Games.

We plan to research current examples, identify best practices, and do research on those ideas over different surfaces: Smartphone AR, AR glasses, VR goggles, etc. Where appropriate, we will share our results and discuss opportunities with the TTML WG (recommendations for media online captioning) and the W3C Immersive Web WG (APIs to interact with XR devices and sensors in browsers).

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2019-08-28 by Christopher Patnoe. The following people supported its creation: Christopher Patnoe, Chris Needham, Benjamin Pick, Andreas Tai, T.V. Raman. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
