Upcoming: W3C/SMPTE Workshop on Professional Media Production on the Web

23 August 2021 | Archive

W3C announced today the I Am The NRA Comfortable Sweatshirt Men Sport T-Shirt Round Coll, which is being organized as a virtual event during SMPTE’s annual ATC event, 9-18 November 2021.

Professional media assets, including audio-visual masters for television and motion pictures, are increasingly being stored in the cloud. The workshop will connect the web platform and the professional media production communities and explore evolutions of the Web platform to address professional media production requirements, including:

  • Using Web technologies, like WebCodecs, WebGPU, and Web Audio for professional media production
  • Understand the unique performance and format requirements of professional media production workflows
  • Identify gaps in the web platform and standardization opportunities

This joint W3C/SMPTE event will be organized as a combination of pre-recorded talks followed by online discussions on GitHub, and culminating in a series of live sessions in November 2021.

Interested parties are encouraged to submit a proposal for a talk as soon as possible. Deadline for selected speakers to provide their recorded talks is 15 October 2021.

Workshop organizers are also interested in expanding diversity of the program committee to cover other perspectives and regional specificities. Please reach out to François Daoust <> if you are interested.

The event is free and open to anyone with relevant perspectives on the topic, whether or not W3C/SMPTE members. Please register by 5 November 2021 to be notified of talks availability, of the forum set up to facilitate discussion among registered participants, and of the live sessions logistics. To make sure that live interactions can take place during live sessions, the Program Committee may restrict participation to live sessions based on information provided during registration.

Working Group Note: XR Accessibility User Requirements

1 September 2021 | Archive

The Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group has published XR Accessibility User Requirements (XAUR) as a Working Group Note. XR refers to hardware, applications, and techniques used for virtual reality or immersive environments (VR), augmented or mixed reality (AR), and other related technologies. XAUR introduces technical accessibility challenges, such as the need for multi-modal support, synchronization of input and output devices, and customization. It describes accessibility user needs and suggests requirements. XAUR is for designers and developers involved in creating immersive and augmented experiences. It’s also useful for anyone who wants to better understand accessibility in a range of immersive or augmented environments.

First Public Working Draft: Secure Payment Confirmation (SPC)

31 August 2021 | Archive

The Web Payments Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Secure Payment Confirmation (SPC). SPC helps to streamline authentication during a payment transaction.

First Public Working Drafts: WebXR Depth Sensing, Hit Test, DOM Overlays Modules

31 August 2021 | Archive

The Immersive Web Working Group has published the following three First Public Working Drafts:

  • WebXR Depth Sensing Module is a module extending the capabilities of WebXR Device API. It enables apps to obtain depth information computed by supported XR devices in order to provide more immersive experiences. The example use cases of depth sensing API include (but are not limited to) simulating physical interactions of virtual objects with the real world, occlusion, and non-visual applications that can make use of increased awareness of users’ environment.
  • Yqs Night Light 3D led Night Light Touch Sensor Decorative Light describes a method for performing hit tests against real world geometry to be used with the WebXR Device API.
  • WebXR DOM Overlays Module expands the WebXR Device API with a mechanism for showing interactive 2D web content during an immersive WebXR session. When the feature is enabled, the user agent will display the content of a single DOM element as a transparent-background 2D rectangle.

First Public Working Draft: CSS Nesting Module

31 August 2021 | Archive

The CSS Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of CSS Nesting Module. This module introduces the ability to nest one style rule inside another, with the selector of the child rule relative to the selector of the parent rule. This increases the modularity and maintainability of CSS stylesheets.

First Public Working Draft: Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.1

26 August 2021 | Archive

The Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Digital Publishing WAI-ARIA Module 1.1. Enabling users of assistive technologies to find their way through web content requires embedding semantic metadata about web document structural divisions. This is particularly important for structural divisions of long-form documents and goes along with embedding semantic metadata about web-application widgets and behaviors for assistive technologies. This specification defines a set of WAI-ARIA roles specific to helping users of assistive technologies navigate through such long-form documents.

This document is part of the WAI-ARIA suite described in the WAI-ARIA Overview.

Working Group Notes: DID Rubric and DID Implementation Guide

26 August 2021 | Archive

The Decentralized Identifier Working Group has just published two Working Group Notes:

  • DID Method Rubric v1.0: The communities behind Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) bring together a diverse group of contributors who have decidedly different notions of exactly what “decentralization” means. Rather than attempting to resolve this potentially unresolvable question, we propose a rubric — a scoring guide used to evaluate performance, a product, or a project — that teaches how to evaluate a given DID Method according to one’s own requirements.
  • DID Implementation Guide v1.0: This document provides guidance to DID method developers, related to serialization, cryptographic primitive selection, governance, and interoperability.

First Public Working Draft: VirtualKeyboard API

24 August 2021 | Archive

The Web Editing Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of 1/4" X 520" LA-CO Markal PTFE Standard Grade Pipe Thread Tape [S. The VirtualKeyboard API provides authors with greater control over the visibility of the virtual keyboard (VK), and greater ability to adapt the layout of web pages when VK visibility changes.
