I disagree with that assessment.  Synchronized media  can be lots of
things.  audio slide shows, audio with interactivity are also very
common.  I don't think that it is misleading - it is important since
these are the key items that require the equivalents that aren't
required elsewhere.

	The only thing that bothers me about it is the opening.


	"Audio or video..."  Most synchronized media (multimedia), I'd
say 95%,  is Audio synchronized WITH video. So placing the two of them
at the front of the sentence with an OR separating them is kind of
misleading I'd say.
