Gregg, 

	Proposed

	 

	 

	1.1.6 For prerecorded multimedia content, a combined document
containing captions
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/appendixA.html#captionsdef>  intermixed
with the audio description
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/appendixA.html#audiodescdef>
transcripts is available. [How to meet 1.1.6
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20060117/Overvi
ew.html#text-equiv-text-doc> ]

 This sounds fine to me, but I think that we should make sure that we
accept the case where a transcript includes links to audio descriptions
interspersed, as an alternative to the actual description text.    For
example:

 

Transcript:

This is the first spoken transcript text.  This is more transcript.  (<a
href="#desc1">description 1</a>).  This is more transcript.  Blah blah
blah....

 

Descriptions:

<a name="desc1" id="desc1">1. </a>This is the first description

 

This would improve the experience for many users, and while it is
untested, I'd like to make sure that it is acceptable to use.
