Yes, I see what you are saying.    But I'm not sure what value having the
captions without the description would be?

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?

I don't understand this suggestion.

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
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/appendixA.html#audiodescdef>  description
transcripts is available. [How
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20060117/Overview.h
tml#text-equiv-text-doc>  to meet 1.1.6]

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.
