HTML5 longdesc Specification

Laura Carlson-2
Hi Chaals,

Thank you very much for creating a specification [1] to define a
longdesc attribute for HTML5.

Some references for you:

* Use Cases:

* Constraints:

* Requirement and Solution Matrix
http://www.d.umn.edu/~lcarlson/research/ld-solutions.html

* Issue 30 Change Proposal: Include longdesc in HTML5
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/InstateLongdesc

* Objection to the Proposal: Zero Edit/Obsolete longdesc

I sent this comment to the [hidden email] list as the
Accessibility Task Force list only allows members to post to
[hidden email] . You may want consider changing the address
in the spec to encourage public feedback.

It is my sincere hope that the HTML5 leadership does not set up
further process impediments delaying HTML ISSUE-30 [2] further.

Best Regards,
Laura
