New Addendum to Image Metadata Report
submitted by Geoff Freed
The May 2013 Addendum to DIAGRAM’s Image Metadata Report has now been posted, and you can download the PDF from the DIAGRAM Research Overview page. The Addendum includes the latest news regarding the status of @longdesc vs aria-describedat vs epub:describedat. Among other things, there is also a detailed summary of what has been happening in the world of standards since the last update, as well as updated information about tools, including CS6.
Standards Working Group Update
The Standards Working Group held its quarterly meeting on May 16, 2013. Discussion centered on APIP, ARIA and longdesc, and LRMI & schema.org. Please see the wiki page for a link to detailed notes. Given the number of important discussions about EPUB 3.01 and other matters, the Working Group resolved to meet again this month. Co-chairs George Kerscher and Mark Hakkinen will therefore hold the next meeting on June 20, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time. Please let George and Mark know if you have ideas to add to the agenda.
