W3C talks accessibility in report on web and television convergence


The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) held its Second Web and TV Workshop in February, where key priorities about web and TV convergence were discussed.

The workshop, held in February this year, resulted in the publication of a report by the W3C including but not limited to the following:

  • Home networking and second-screen scenarios
  • The role of metadata and relation to Semantic Web technology
  • Ensuring that convergent solutions are accessible
  • Possible extensions to HTML5 for television

The release of this report is designed to create some consistency in how televisions are incorporating online content.

HTML 5 – updates and logos and WAI, oh my! A busy start to 2011

For many people, January is one of the quietest months of the year. Here in Australia, the combination of Christmas, New Year and the hot summer weather is often a time when people take leave, with most people being back on board towards the end of the month.

For the rest of the world, though, January seems to be one of the busiest times, especially in technology circles. The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas always provides a great showcase of new products, and the W3C keeps churning out new updates, focusing heavily on HTML 5.

WCAG 2.0 ‘AAA’ – Is it worth it?

The adoption of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 standards has been a great success, with many governments around the world either implementing or committing to implement them over the coming years. 

While most agree in principle that WCAG 2.0 should be implemented, there is considerable debate about the level to which the guidelines should be implemented. Generally the debate is between the minimal ‘A’ standard or the more comprehensive ‘AA’.
