Content Working Group Update

2016 December 30

The Content Working Group reviewed and approved the newest addition to the Accessible Image Sample Book, a section on how to make multimedia accessible, which will go live early next year. During the review process, the group had an in-depth discussion on the unexpected difficulties around embedding and playing closed captions in an EPUB document. After some back and forth with members of the Transition to Accessible EPUB group, it was determined that the problem wasn’t with the EPUB 3.1 specification, but rather a shortcoming of reading systems that will be tested further by the reading systems group. Other decisions made included how to progress with the HTML migration of the Accessible Image Sample Book which is currently underway and the next steps for the Top Tips For Producing Braille-Friendly Content document which is still in the early stages of production.
