Thanks for the heads up, Nigel.

We actually developed requirements on audio description during our work
on HTML 5. These are published in a W3C Note known as the Media
Accessibility User Requirements (MAUR) available at:


We should also note that ISO SC35 WG6 has a document in this area, but I
don't have its URI immediately at hand.

I have proposed a draft requirements document for this use case which can be found attached to the email archived at https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tt/2016Sep/0034.html which describes the workflow being supported and a short list of requirements.
