Summary of Issue: Caption for video in foreign language
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
When a video is presented in foreign language, which language should be used for caption?

For example, a video is embeded in a Japanese web page. In the video, a person speaks English. But the video is intended for Japanese users. Which language should the author use for adding caption to the video in order to meet SC 1.2.2, Japanese or English?

Proposed Change:
Just want to clarify. Thank you very much in advance for your time.
