(That's helpful, but ahs no effect on conformance - one blind person might  
be very clever, or have a particularly complicated estup not available to  
most users, or something).

You haven't synchronised the text content, so you cannot claim conformance  
to 1.4. (presumably the PDF content includes the text of the comments).

The audio, which comments on the slides (assuming it is clear from the  
audio what the slides are) can probably be considered to meet 1.3
