RE: REwrite of 1.1.6

Not everyone will want to read the descriptions intermixed with the
captions.  As a result, while it is fine to say that these different
types of information should be mixed together, it may not create the
best experience.  one method that would allow users to have easy access
to the descriptions within a transcript would be to link to the
descriptions (the descriptions could be in the same file, or even in a
separate file) instead of to include the description text directly.
This way, the user could listen to the description if desired, and
skipped more easily.
 
The reason I mentioned this was that your suggested rewrite to 1.1.6
could potentially make this technique insufficient to satisfy the
requirement, and I want to make sure that this would be allowed.
 
Is that more clear?

		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.
