Call for wide Review of WebVTT for Web Platform WG

# Thierry MICHEL (a month ago)

Dear Web Platform Working Group,

The W3C Timed Text Working Group has recently published a new working draft of WebVTT: The Web Video Text Tracks Format [1].

The main use of WebVTT is for marking up external text track resources in connection with the HTML <track> element. WebVTT files provide

captions or subtitles for video content, and also text video descriptions [MAUR], chapters for content navigation, and more generally any form of metadata that is time-aligned with audio or video content.

The TTWG invites you to review this draft, and requests comments to be received by 22 Sept 2017. These comments will be used to fulfill the W3C Process [3] requirement for Wide Review of drafts, and Horizontal Review [4] prior to publication as Candidate Recommendation.

If you wish to make comments regarding this document, please send them to public-tt@w3.org public-tt@w3.org?subject=%5BWebVTT%5B with [WebVTT] at the start of your email's subject. All comments are welcome, however the scope of review will be mainly focused on the new features introduced in WebVTT, since the First Public Working Draft [5] on 13 November 2014 which triggered a first Wide Review .

A cumulative summary of all changes applied to this version since the WebVTT First Public Working Draft is available for your convenience [6].
