Hi Chas

Not sure what your question is.  There are lots of cases where it is not
possible to have full descriptions.   Symphonies is one good example.
That is why the criteria allow short labels or descriptions when full
description are not possible.  Does this answer your question?

When is it not possible to provide a text equivalent? Naturally it can
difficult in a variety of cases, but do we have any real guidance on the
topic? Otherwise this becomes more or less non-verifiable.
