I nearly fell out of my chair when I came across this news item: Web consortium captures captioning. The fact that W3C is getting involved is a big deal.
Long ago, I accepted the fact there are going to be plenty of video games, Web sites, and TV programs that I wouldn’t experience for myself because it’s tough to caption everything and to fund it. Since W3C is chartering a new group known as TTWG (Timed Text Working Group), it means business.
Tried to see if there was a similar workgroup for the visually or mobility impaired. Haven’t found it yet.
