But I only see transcript related with media element, so I guess they have strong connection.
And how the app or service use transcript for accessibility? Can you show some use cases?

Show transcript beside a video element? A <div></div>+CSS can easily do this
Read out transcript for video element to people? Text track can do this very well.

What's this partner resource-transcript use for? Any special reason? Anything can not be done by existing html technology?

I am not questioning the adoption of transcript into HTML, I just want to understand the motivation behind this.

thanks
