Ah... I found it... W3C's policy on media archiving says:

"All multimedia (audio or video) produced or published by W3C MUST be
accessible at time of posting. ... For most W3C video, all you need to
do is provide a simple text transcript. Transcripts are cheap and easy
(see FAQ on multimedia accessibility)."

and the FAQ says:

"Note: Minutes are not sufficient for a transcript of an audio or video
of a meeting (unless done by a court reporter or someone who can capture
every word)."
