Today I gave a talk at the Open Video Conference about the state of the specifications in HTML5 for media accessibility.

Are they the same kind of technologies than those : http://xiph.org/video/vid1.shtml ?
indeed it has to be standardized
Do you know of any plan to get the HTML5 track element in Firefox and other browsers ? I run Firefox 4 beta nightlies and it doesn’t seem to handle it.
BTW, does Safari 5 already implents it ? (see http://www.deafmac.org/blog/2010/safari-5-now-available-shows-captions-in-html5-video/ )
@antistress No, I am not aware of any browsers having implemented support for track yet. They may be working on it.
It seems though that Safari5 supports mpeg4 files that have encapsulated caption tracks. That’s new and a first step towards getting in-band caption support.
thank you for your answer. I’m sure that i’ll read here when a browser implement the track element 🙂
