This is already required.

At level 2 you need to provide audio description. 

So if you are at level 3 and do the text -- you already passed the audio
description requirement.

I agree with John and Loretta that wording should be consistent between

do we really want a weak one at level 3 of 1.1?  

How about requiring *both* Audio Description and full corrected screenplay
at level 3?

That is, for L1 the site has a choice of AD or screenplay.  For L3 claim,
site must provide both.  This way, providing the full corrected screenplay
does satisfy this particular SC at Triple A "for free".  If the site is
going for Triple A, they still have to do some extra work.

Is there a need to further qualify that some kinds of video don't really
benefit from Audio Description, and therefore AD is not required?  Is it
legitimate for a site with nothing but talking head type videos (captioned
of course) to claim they satisfy Level 1?  Or, since a talking head type
video gains little from audio description, *must* a site provide full
corrected screenplay to satisfy Level 1?
