Full transcripts give people with disabilities a way to access audio/video
content. Transcripts are often provided as a separate resource, because they're
often too lengthy to be included on the same page as the audio/video they're
associated with.

A mechanism that creates an association between an audio/video element and a
full (off page) transcript would have many benefits. These include
discoverability for assistive technology users, programmatic identification for
search engine indexing, design asthetic, and  content syndication or
embedding..
