Further to our Media sub-team call of today, the following bugs have been
filed:

[Bug 10839] New: Providing visible indication that descriptions and
captions are available.
[Bug 10840] New: Allow the user to independently adjust the  volumes of
the audio description and original soundtracks.
[Bug 10841] New: We require a method to allow the user to control
playback timing in order to have more time to understand the material.
[Bug 10842] New: Support the isolation of speech from other  background
sounds in AV media
[Bug 10843] New: Support user control over the visual presentation  of
caption text.

Cheers!
