Item Number: Success Criterion 1.2.2
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: TE
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Guideline 1.2

Guidelines 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 are not mutually exclusive.  Perhaps it should be,  if an audio description is provided, compliance is at level 2. If a transcript is provided instead, compliance is at level 1. 

1.2.2  \"Audio descriptions of video, or... are provided for prerecorded multimedia.\"

1.2.3  \"Audio descriptions of video are provided for prerecorded multimedia.

Proposed Change:
Drop \"Audio descriptions of video\" from  1.2.2. Audio description are relatively difficult to implement, while text transcripts are quite easy. Leave the transcript at level 1, which is attainable by everyone, and keep audio descriptions to level 2.
