Hi Mark, all,

Thanks for making that point. In today's media subgroup meeting we
indeed identified that there may be two different things that we've
been arguing about:

1. a "clean audio" track that is an alternative to the main audio
track where the speech is singled out in a single channel of a
multi-channel audio track

2. a "speech" track that is an addition to the main audio track and
can be turned on over the top of the main audio and controlled in
volume separately

We are not sure if the second use is realistic, and if the first use
would not generally be provided as the main audio track already. We
need further expert input on this.

For now, we decided to leave the issue open and wait until we have
more information from people that actually work with such technology.

Cheers,
Silvia.

I don't mind what it is called, but the other question is whether it remains as an "alternative" track (as we have now) or an "additional" track to be played together with the main audio (with adjustable relative volume). The DVB references seemed to be to the latter. Do we need both ? I don't have an opinion except that we need to decide.
