In an attempt to make things more universal, an alternate version of the
success criteria for the [theoretical] combined 1.1 and 3.4 could be:

Success criteria:
1. All non-text content is explicitly associated with a text equivalent
(images have alt-text, movies have collated text transcripts, animations
have descriptions, interactive scripts have a functional equivalent such as
a form, audio files have a text transcript) which fulfills the same function
and conveys the same information as the non-text content.
2. Provide supplemental media that aid comprehension of the message (e.g.
either link to or provide a graph, chart or some other common visual
representation of data; a representation of well known symbols or logos,
sound files that are referenced in the text, etc.)
