Summary of Issue: confussion with non-live audio/video
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Overall confusion is that pre-recorded audio and pre-recorded video are not well represented in the guideline when it is *not* a part of a multimedia presentation.   It often only refers to non-live audio/video in multimedia, but multimedia is defined as video or audio synchonized with some other method of providing information.  Since Video includes Audio, video is not multimedia, it\'s just video.  If the definition of Multimedia should include Video, this should be made clear.

Whats not clear:  

The entire sentence.  It mentions multimedia (which is defined as audio or video combined with another component) and it includes live audio or live video.  But since the definition of multimedia doesn\'t include non-live audio or video, I get confused.  This is specially true because the ways to meet this criteria seem like you should also use for non-live audio and non-live video.  

Proposed Change:
I would expect to see something about pre-recorded audio/video under guideline 1.1.1.  Since 1.1.1 differentiates live audio/video to only have a clear label/name, then I would think that non-live audio/video would be required to at least have a full text transcript, right?    This is particularly true since audio/video are linear unless when they are a part of a multimedia presentation.
