I was asked to propose wording to expand the evaluation for Technique 1.1.7
(alternatives for sound files). Reworded Evaluation section (readable
version):

-----

If:

* the "href" attribute of an A or AREA element is a sound or multimedia
file, or
* OBJECT or EMBED elements of type="<audio or video MIME types>" do not have
an associated text equivalent either within their content or an internal or
adjacent link, or
* the "src" attribute of EMBED elements that do not have a "type" attribute
is a sound file, multimedia file, or programmatic object, or
* the "data" attribute of OBJECT elements that do not have a "type"
attribute is a sound file, multimedia file, or programmatic object, or
* APPLET elements do not have an "alt" attribute or internal alternate
content

then ask the user if there is an existing text transcript file or if a text
equivalent has been provided on the current page.

The HTML source version describing my changes (end of message if you don't
want to read this):
