Summary of Issue: Suggestions to clarify \"media alternatives to text\"
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
In \"Media, Test, Sensory\" it took me several readings of the criterion, intent, definitions, and techniques to understand how to parse the last phrase, \"or (5) a media alternative to text that is clearly labeled as such.\"  

Proposed Change:
2 suggestions: slight change in wording of the criterion and an added situation.

A slight change in the wording of the criterion:

If it  is (1)  synchronized media, (2)  live audio-only or live video-only content, (3) a test or exercise that must be presented in non-text format, (4)  primarily intended to create a specific sensory experience, then text alternatives at least provide descriptive identification of the non-text content  , or (5) if it is a media alternative to text it is clearly labeled as such. 

Add another situation to the techniques.  

Situation G: If the non-text content is a media alternative to text:

Gnn: Identifying media alternatives to text using a short text alternative technique listed below.
