Video Captioning and Subtitles

   5 January 2016

   W3C is delighted to announce that it will receive a 2016
   Technology & Engineering Emmy ® Award from the National Academy of
   Television Arts & Sciences for its work on the "Timed Text Mark-up
   Language standard" that makes video content more accessible with
   text captioning and subtitles. Representatives from W3C staff and
   the Timed Text Working Group will attend the awards ceremony on 8
   January at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas during the Consumer
   Electronics Show (CES).


   “W3C is thrilled to receive a 2016 Emmy ® Award in recognition of
   technologies that support an important part of our mission to
   bring the full potential of the World Wide Web to everyone,
   whatever their disability, culture, language, device or network
   infrastructure,” said W3C CEO Dr. Jeff Jaffe. “I would like to
   thank the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for their
   recognition of W3C, and I congratulate the members of the W3C
   Timed Text Working Group and the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative
   on this outstanding achievement.”

   the WCAG WG is setting for the development of WCAG 2.0 extensions.
   Extensions are optional standards modules that build on the
   existing requirements for WCAG 2.0, and are designed to work in
   harmony with the WCAG 2.0 standard. Learn more from the call for
   review e-mail and “Shaping the WCAG 2.0 extensions” blog post and
