Hi Leif,

User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 is more encompassing:
"collated text transcript combines (collates) captions with text
descriptions of video information (descriptions of the actions, body
language, graphics, and scene changes of the video track). These text
equivalents make presentations accessible to people who are deaf-blind
and to people who cannot play movies, animations, etc. "

Best Regards,

Laura L. Carlson
