Item Number: Guideline 1.2: Provide synchronized alternatives for multimedia
Part of Item: 
Comment Type: question
Summary of Issue: Does video with synchronized captions fit into 1.2?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Would a Video file that was made accessible by adding synchronized captions (through something like SMIL) be considered multimedia?  Judging by the definition of multimedia, I would think that is the case.   

Proposed Change:
Add an exception in either the definition of Multimedia *or* in all the 1.2 requirements stating that video with synchronized audio for the purposes of making its audio accessible does not make the video a \"multimedia\" presentation.
