Example 3: Why isn't a long description required?

Proposed Change:

Add to example that a long description is required which gives the same
information as the image

----------------------------
Response from Working Group:
----------------------------

Since the animation is fully explained in text a longdesc would be redundant
and end up having the user who is blind listening to the description twice.
So the alternate text provides a short description and mentions that the
animation is described in the text that follows it.

Response from GSW:

Can you please tell me which SC this refers to?
