MEDIA-06: If pauses in a video are insufficient for audio descriptions, extended audio description is provided.
How to test
- Where the video already has complete audio description that does not require extended audio description.
- Where an alternative version of the video is available which meets the criteria of this test.
How to fix
Provide extended audio descriptions for the video, in which the video content is paused while the audio descriptions play, so that the audio descriptions do not conflict with the existing audio content. This may mean providing an alternative version which has extended audio descriptions built-in, or use a video player which supports switchable extended audio descriptions.
