personally, i didn't gather much out of this session. it could possibly be because i am more of a designer, and a lot of the talk was a bit too technical. but also, the most overlying theme was "this isn't solidified yet." and "this may change completely" phrases throughout the whole session. 

also, since not all browsers support these new features, and the main consensus was that browsers and accessibility tools won't support this until it's more solidified. 

my favorite quote from the session:
"use a browser that doesn't suck" (and that was from the speaker from microsoft)
 

What did you think of this review?

I hope you caught the panel that was right after this one.  Check out @geekygirlAustin's review of HTML5: Tales from the Developmental Trenches.  Sounded more entertaining in comparison!  Oh, and I'll try not to use a browser that sucks ;)

The 2nd half w/ additional panelists was far better, w/ dialogue and insight. The 1st half was more an ad for Win7.

Event Description:It appears from the discussions that HTML5 and accessibility are mutually exclusive. The alt and summary attributes were at stake, and we are just beginning to understand the potential of the audio, video, and canvas elements. This panel will show what HTML5 can do for accessibility and how we can bridge the trenches.Ballroom FSunday, March 14 at 02:00 PM
