Subject: Call for Review: Media Accessibility User Requirements

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Protocols and Formats Working Group (PFWG) invites you to comment on the Working Draft of:
Media Accessibility User Requirements

This document describes the accessibility requirements of people with disabilities with respect to audio and video on the Web, particularly in the context of HTML5. It explains alternative content technologies that people use to get audio and video content, and how these fit in the larger picture of accessibility, both technically within a web user agent and from a production process point of view. Additional information is in the document's Abstract and Status sections.

This is a First Public Working draft that will continue to be developed. PFWG plans to eventually publish it as a W3C Working Group Note.

WAI encourages you to provide feedback on this draft, particularly:
* Are the use cases for media accessibility clear and complete?
* Do the features to enhance media accessibility meet the use cases?
* Are the technical requirements for media accessibility complete and achievable?

Please send comments by *10 February 2012* to the publicly-archived list via:
* Comment form http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/comments/instructions
Alternatively, you can e-mail comments to public-pfwg-comments at w3.org
