We did a great job of editing 1.1 on the call. However, we missed 1 problem.

Issue 322 asks whether or not 1.1 required that there be a text transcript
for all movies as a part of level 1. If you read it, it in fact does imply
that – even after our edits.
I would suggest that we resolve this problem by slightly editing level 1
success criteria 1, and add the words "multimedia and" so that it reads:

C)  For MULTIMEDIA AND non-text content that is intended to create a 
specific sensory experience, such as music or visual art, text alternatives
identify and describe the non-text content. 

In addition, Guideline 1.2 could be worded:

Provide synchronized media equivalence for multi-media and interative
