Hello,

As per [1], I would like to propose the following generalization of 
checkpoint 3.8 in [2]:

     3.8 If a technology allows for more than one continuous equivalent 
         tracks (e.g., closed captions, auditory descriptions,
         video of sign language, etc.), allow the user to choose from
among the 
         tracks. [Priority 1] 

Proposed new text:

         If more than one alternative equivalent is available for a 
         resource, allow the user to choose from among the 
         alternatives. [Priority 1] 
             For example, if a multimedia presentation has several
closed 
             captions available (e.g., in different languages, different
             levels of detail, etc.) allow the user to choose from among
them. 

 - Ian
