In order to support as many users as possible, yes.

You might also note that transcripts are sometimes referenced by persons
without disabilities who want to speed read through content--or to skim
the content. This use case came up during our discussions in the HTML
Working Group prior to the release of HTML 5.0. Let me know if you need
a reference to those minutes, and I'll dig them up for you. This use
case isn't noted in the Media Accessibility User Requirements (MAUR)
note simply because it's not an accessibility use case in the
traditional sense.
