Hi Michael, 
That`s true. 1.3.3 is about the content of a web page, e.g. images, text, form instruction.
As for the cake preparation video, both 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 apply.

Hi Everyone--

I'm reviewing a website that contains an audio-video movie describing 
how to make a cake (for example).

Am I correct to assume that 1.3.3 refers onlyto instructions about how 
to use a feature of a website itself (such as filling in a form) rather 
than instructions on how, for example, to make a cake? It seems to me 
that information related to the video would be covered by 1.2.2 
(captions) and 1.2.3 (descriptions).

Is that correct, or am I misunderstanding this?

Many thanks!
